  • "My mom was Pat's babysitter over 90 years ago and remained her best friend until Mom's passing in 2002. We stopped to visit Pat at Thanksgiving but by then she was already too ill to respond. We will miss her terribly as she was the last person to truly know Mom and share everything with her--and she still called us "you kids." If her funeral were earlier in the day we would be there! "
    -Kathy Soltwisch

  • "We are so sorry to hear of Pat's passing, she was lovely lady and a wonderful mother to Ann and her siblings. You are in our thoughts and prayers."
