Pat was a homemaker who loved to cook and sew. She taught her family numerous recipes to pass down for generations. She crafted unique clothing for all her children. Hampton Beach, NH was one of her favorite places. She couldn’t leave there without stopping at Brown’s Lobster Pound Seafood Restaurant for a basket of clams or a lobster roll.

At an early age, she became a Jehovah’s Witness, teaching her children the Bible. One of her favorite scriptures, Revelation 21:4 “He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” She instilled that our treasures are not man’s world but God’s Kingdom.

She was a kind, considerate, loving soul who often gave to others before herself. She is reunited with her parents and her son, who loved her dearly. She will be missed by all who knew her, and the fond memories will be cherished.
