She was one in a million and I am grateful that four of us who were friends in college got together for a few years. Phyllis Wagner Lang from South Bend was the fourth of our group. I live in Monticello and Gwen lives in Remington.
I have many happy memories of our times together in college. I also knew Kay.
Warm Regards to all,

She used to send me a picture of a camel on Wednesdays to always remind me that it was ""hump day"" during the week and if you could get thru Wednesday, you generally had it made.
In a world where greed and selfishness rule supreme, Pat was always thinking of other people. She was a real altruist and her loving ways and kindness will be missed indeed.
Kyle, Qeryldine and Pete -- you are the three beautiful gifts she gave the world. She was so proud of each of you in so many ways, and rightfully so. You have all made her proud.
I am so sad with her loss, but glad she is no longer in pain.
Much love to you all.
I know she loved her children and grandchildren so much! We had many talks about them and how they helped her. Thank You for having such a wonderful Mother that many loved!

I am sorry for your loss of your mother and sister.
I will always remember her smile and sense of humor. She made me laugh on many occasions when the camping group got together.

Her family are in my thoughts and prayers.
We are so sorry for your loss. Pat was such a kind person with a wonderful sense of humor. My mother, Karen Hunt, thought so much of Pat and you kids and will be so happy to welcome her into the Kingdom of heaven. Continue to share memories of her with each other. It has such a healing effect. Our best to each of you from the Lawrence Family of Naples, FL.
I am a member of the family that ""lives"" on the 7th floor of the Krannert Building at Purdue. We are all friends and look out for one another regardless of what college we work for - the Krannert School of Management or Agricultural Economics. When Pat joined us, we were happy to have another ""family member"" but later it was apparent that she was not only a nice person but also hysterically funny and had the best wit I had ever come across. I remember she took part on the ""panel"" of a presentation by a local businesswoman and some of the stuff out of her mouth made me think that she must surely be a stand-up comedien.
Later I learned that she had family in Ft. Collins and we talked about the fact that we had that in common since I too have a daughter and granddaughter there.
Be proud of the fact that although she wasn&t always feeling at the top of her game she always had a smile and a nice word to say. That&s rare these days and one of the things that I&ll remember about her.
My thoughts are with you and I hope you understand that sometimes God needs someone beside Him to brighten His day too.
