Pat was very active in her church, Altar Society, and her children's school activities. She loved playing bridge and whist, enjoyed dancing and playing with her grandchildren. She was very proud of her 100% Irish heritage. Pat was a full-time homemaker, canned many vegetables from the family farm, enjoyed knitting, sewing and collecting dolls.
