Pat was a devout Catholic who had been a faithful member of Christ the King Church for many years. She was a member of the Emblem Club, and the Ancient Order of Hibernians.

In Pat's life, nothing took precedence over her family.

She passionately believed that faith, family, and friends were of utmost importance, and she welcomed everyone she met into her heart. Her love was boundless, and she generously shared her time and kindness, leaving a positive impact on numerous lives.
