Pat loved going to rummage sales, thrift stores, and bake sales where she would then give away the sweet treats she bought to family and friends. Patti was a social butterfly who could talk to anyone, and enjoyed sharing her gift by spending time at nursing homes visiting with the elderly. In earlier years, Patti and her husband enjoyed dancing, going camping and taking Sunday drives. She most loved time spent with her family.
