    Pat was a dear sweet lady. She was the first recording secretary of the Assumption Womens’ Group. Pat frequently attended meetings of the Stitch and Chat group at Assumption. Her lovely smile will be dearly missed.

    Pat, was a wonderful friendly person, which I had known all my life. My memories of she and Richard
    always being a happy and friendly couple. Didn’t know their children, other than Brenda, since Brenda
    is married to my cousin Bob Oliver and I always enjoy seeing them, which isn’t often.
    Sympathy and prayers to her family. Annie (Oliver) Stube
