Pat had many beloved nieces, nephews and friends.
Known to many as Miss Patty, she was a friend to all that met her, she would make you feel like you knew her your whole life. She always thought of others, sharing her love and motherly charms with anyone in need. The unofficial title of second mom was lovingly bestowed upon her by many family and friends. She loved to cook and if you were loved by Miss Patty you were sure to receive a delivery of some delicious Pasta e Fagioli, lasagna, chili or some baked tasty treats. Usually delivered with a kiss and a hug. The other way she loved to show her appreciation and love to people was to crochet an afghan for them, in their favorite colors. At current count I believe 3/4 of New Jersey residents, and many from other states have afghans from Miss Patty. She loved to spend time at her summer get away at Eagle Lake in Pa, travel to Mexico and the Caribbean with her husband Greg, spend time with her family, especially her Grandchildren and Great Grandchildren and spoil her beautiful puppy Maya. She was a Beautiful soul, she will be loved and missed by many.
