But her best role was that of sister, cousin, wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother…she LOVED her family and never passed up a chance to let a family member know that she loved and valued them. Pat was especially proud her wonderful family and cousins whom she spoke to on a weekly bases. Her family, relationships, and memories she made with them was the thing she loved most in life. May all of her family tell the stories in her memory and remain “Close as Cordwood.”
