    I was so saddened to hear of Patte’s death. She had a great smile and an even greater heart. The world’s a less joyous place without her.

    It is sad to hear of Patte’s death. I came to know Patte through one of her dearest friends, Jackie Ferrante. What a wonderful person! Patte was so friendly and instantly made you feel welcome and loved. Patte was a fighter and this served her well in life. I enjoyed getting to know Patte and although I did not get down to visit often, I will miss her kind and gentle soul.

    Patte has been a life-long friend since high school. Although we lived far apart, we stayed in touch. The journey continues on forever with friendship, with love, forever with peace. My condolences to the family for your loss.

    Patte was a great friend of mine whom I held very dear in my heart. During the five years we worked together at the CPSC, we shared laughter, stories, and many fun moments. She was very proud of her children! I loved her and will cherish my memory of her kindness, generosity, and good humor forever.

    Sooo glad we got to chat st the 45th Mooney High Reunion! I had not seen Patte since high school, but it was like we just picked up from there and we talked and laughed together. She was still the same ole Patte, upbeat, funny, sweet, a fighter, intelligent, and one lovely soul. Her passing has saddened me greatly, and she will be missed by many. My thoughts and prayers to her family and many friends.
