Patricia was a devoted wife, perfect Mama, loving Nana/Nannie, sister, aunt, and friend to many.  She loved her family more than anything.  She enjoyed traveling, fishing, sight-seeing and loved being outside.  She also loved her favorite sidekick and sweetest boy “Boobear”. Her marriage of 46 years was that of unspoken love and devotion.  They were always together; when you see one, you always saw the other.  She worked on cars with Daddy and they both taught each other so much!
