I am heartbroken to hear of Patty's passing. Growing up next door she was the most generous and kind person. Her door was always open anytime, often with a cup of tea ready. I thought of it as my second home. My condolences to all her family and friends. Love to Pam and Tara. Chris (Kissey)Delage Johnson

Pat, I will miss you forever. Our trips to NY to see brother Donald, to Jamestown climbing over the rocks at Beaver tail , Maine and riding horses will hold a special place in my heart. We held a precious friendship for over 55 years and I will never forget you. Rest in peace my friend.
