Pat will always be remembered for a smile that lit up a room and her warm hugs.  What she lacked in stature she made up for in her loving and generous spirit.  Pat touch so many lives with her acts of unselfish kindness and was an inspiration to all who knew her.  My deepest sympathy to her family at this difficult time.  

Our condolences, we knew Pat from various flea markets.  She will be missed.

When my destiny brought me to Rochester and my life path was to cross with Pat's in the spring of 2003 I knew I had found a kindred spirit!


She welcomed me with an open heart and when we discovered our mutual love of roller skating we were like 2 kids on Christmas morning!!


The 2 of us worked side by side at Heidis Closet a long standing consignment store in Rochester. 


Together with Brenda and Bryant we sought out roller skating rinks in La Crosse, Harmony, and our favorite in Bell Creek!!  She was an inspiration to me and I will forever smile in my heart thinking of all the great memories we shared.


To all the family my heart goes out to you.. I will honor her with celebrating the  joy of life and the love that she gave us all..

Dear Brenda,


 


So sorry to hear about your Mother. I only had the pleasure of meeting her a few times, once was at a flea market and if memory serves me correctly, I did buy a pair of jeans from her! She was a a beautiful lady and had such a radiant smile. God bless you and your family during this difficult time. Be kind to you my friend.
