I was in nurses training with Patty many years ago. She was a senior when I was a freshman. She was always so good to help out the rookies. I loved her sense of humor and kind heart. I know many were blessed to have her in their life and care.

She was such a very sweet woman who will always be my mother-in-law. She never had a harsh word to say and was so loving to me.
May God love her and bless her.
