Pat retired from St. Elizabeth Hospital. However, her love and passion was being a wife, mother, and homemaker. She enjoyed the Spring when flowers were in bloom, Summers, canning, and putting up vegetables from the garden Jay raised. In her early years she loved to sew.
Most importantly, Jay and Pat raised their children in church, teaching them to know and love the Lord. Pat was a fierce prayer warrior. Her children and grandchildren always knew they could depend on her to pray, and they knew she was only a phone call away.
She will be greatly missed by her family and friends that knew her and loved her.
Serving as pallbearers will be Darrel Noack, Will Parks, Chad Henderson, Kevin McCugh, Jeff Henderson, and Brent McDonald.
Honorary pallbearers are Dale Henderson, Robert Perales, Dan Brack, and Darwin Brack.
