Pat and I were friends during our Purdue years. I missed the notice in the paper in July and am just now hearing about it from our mutual friend, Gwen Lane Danti.
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,
Karen Van Scoyoc Ward

I wanted to express my sympathy to the family of Patricia Fletcher. Pat was always a bright spot in many of our lives. She would always remember everyone&s birthday with an online birthday card and did this for many years for countless people.

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.

Godspeed, Pat.

You have all come to know me as ""Pat&s friend Joan"" --I was so fortunate to have Pat as such a good friend for nearly 18 years. She brightened my life in more ways than I can count; and taught me more than any teacher ever could. I love her like a sister, and always will.

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.

Pat&s positive attitude and ""can do"" approach will be greatly missed at Krannert. She always volunteered to organize events and training seminars. Even when faced with adversity, she had an upbeat outlook. She will be missed! My thoughts and prayers are with her family.

My heart and sympathy goes out to the family for the passing of Pat Fletcher. It?s wonderful to know that Pat will be peering down from the Stars above and pouring her love upon her friends and family. She will be hoping their lives are as happy and fulfilling as her own. I know it?s hard to think of any happiness in times like these but the memory of Pat, will prove to be the biggest inspiration and support. Hold on to the many memories and in time they will provide a ray of happiness and comfort. My thoughts and prayers are with your family.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

I had the pleasure of working with Pat at the Krannert School of Management. She was a very warm and engaging individual. She made my transition to Krannert very easy and I appreciated her professionalism and kindness. She will be missed amongst her colleagues. Please accept my sympathy for your loss.

I loved Pat dearly, she was such a good friend to me. I loved making her smile which wasn&t always easy to get her to do; but I could get a laugh here and there from her. She taught me many things in my career at Purdue. I will never forget her, she will be deeply missed!
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!

God Bless

Dear Kyle, Pete, Qeryldine, & Kay,

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.

Dear Pat&s Family:

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.
