I am very sorry to hear about the passing of Pat.  Our friendship goes back to when we were in grade school.  I enjoyed visiting with Pat at our 50th reunion and who would have know it would be the last time.  Pat was a fun and very intelligent person.  My condolences to the Otto and Patterson families.

When I see the smiling photo of Pat I cannot help but think of what an incredible person she was.  She suffered so much with the arthritis she dealt with much of her life and yet she ALWAYS had that beautiful smile and she never complained although certainly had reason to.   I remember working with her when we were both nurses at Kenosha Hospital, and then again when we both worked for Gateway.  She was an exellent nurse,  teacher and role model for her students.  She married her classmate love and I am so happy they shared a good life together.  Pat  you are missed and were much loved.
