  7. I have so many fond memories of Pat- my 2ND “mother” if you will! She was such a blessing all through the crazy years growing up here in Penfield. She always had time to listen, advise but also the wisdom to let me try on my own. It was all good, and I am a better person for it!! I can still see the tea pot on the stove and Pat, John and I had many great talks . My love for hunting and the outdoors all started with the family taking me along to Olean for our first hike/hunt. My love of the outdoors has never stopped growing. Thank you for again enriching my life. You will be sorely missed, but always with us! Thank you for always being there for my own family, even babysitting for Adam when needed! Rest easy and watch over us. The world is a better place because you were in it and your wonderful smile and laughter will always bring a smile to my face when I think of you. Love ya Mom, Ralphie

    • Thanks for stopping by today. I’m sure it would have meant a lot to her knowing you were there.

  11. I will miss my mom very much, she taught me a lot of things, she always told me that life is not going to be easy, there will be some bumps in the road, or there might be a big bridge that you might have go over, but always told me to have faith and told me to be prepared for what come your way.

  14. I’ll miss you, Nana.

    I’ll miss the way you always called me “Kathryn me darlin’!”
    I’ll miss spending time at your house with our ‘Busy Bee’ boxes, full of coloring books and puzzles and toys.
    I’ll miss listening to you play your accordion in the living room.
    I’ll miss afternoon tea — served at 4pm — sharp. It always made me feel so fancy.
    I’ll miss playing poker with you for nickels and dimes. Two down, four up, deuces wild. I’ll always know how to play because of you.
    I’ll miss those afternoon drives in your bright red jeep.

    But mostly I’ll miss your fiestiness and your unyielding love for your grandchildren. While you couldn’t meet your great grandson, we are glad you were able to see pictures of him. We will tell him stories about you and let him know how much you loved him.

    Rest easy, Nana. ❤

  15. To John and the entire family. So sorry for your loss. I first met Pat at Xerox, and she was a no nonsense firecracker of a woman. She spoke her mind and was a true friend. We had a running joke going. If I called their house and Pat answered, I’d say, “US Coast Guard calling. Is the coast clear?” Pat would laugh with delight and say, “Yes, the coast is clear.” One day, John and I were on the golf course and his cell phone rang. He answered and then handed it to me, saying it was for me. It was Pat calling to say the coast was clear. Rest in peace Pat.

  18. I bowled with Pat at Empire Lanes. It’s weird, because I’ve been thinking about her and was going to try and call her. I’m so sad to hear the news of her passing! She was such a nice lady!

  19. Jim Mason
    Dear John, David and Nancy, Your wife/ mother was the best secretary that I worked with throughout my career. I am praying that she is enjoying peace in heaven and am praying that you are all finding peace in these troubled times.

  20. I was sad to read of Pat’s death. Regardless of the circumstances, the loss of a loved one is difficult. It was always fun to see you and Pat and talk about Olean and Clark Brothers. My prayers are with you, and for Pat, and I look forward to seeing you again.

She meant a lot to me , When I was coming home from work, I would swing by to see my Mom and Dad, mom would say just getting out of work, I would replied back Yep!!! yes I did, it is snowing out there and I can not stay long due to the whether. I was there a lot, helping dad out with moms issues, taking her to Strong hospital for her Dr’s appointment, because Dad did not want to drive, so I took both of them, got too the front door of strong hospital and a person came out with a wheel chair, The both of them headed to the Dr’s office, I went and park the car, I found the office were both of them were, helped out as much as I could. And I will miss her talks and her comments that she would make to me!!!!

  24. John,
    I was saddened to learn of Pat’s passing this past May.

    families. Pat was always special to Lynn and me, and
    was the last direct link to the Furniss family.
    I know we lost touch after Lynn died, and I,m sorry
    that there was no opportunity to say goodbye to Pat.
    If you have occasion to visit Buffalo, please make it
