  1. Dear Family, I am sorry for your loss. I worked with Pat for many years at DSS. She was such a funny lady. I will miss her very much. She always called me Lali. Pat was my friend. I trust that you have wonderful memories to hold in your heart.

  2. I worked with Pat for many years in Bridgeport. I’ll always remember her wonderful sense of humor and (though she sometimes hid it well) her deep kindness and concern for others. My thoughts are with you. Judy Sugarman

  3. My prayers are with you in this time of sorrow. May you find comfort in the word of God and may He give you peace. In your hearts and in your homes.

  4. To Pat’s family, I have worked with Pat since 1986 when I came to the Bridgeport office of DSS. In those early years I remember that she was always venturing off somewhere to some tropical vacation spot, and coming back so tan. She was a team with Joe G.on PSE cases. It was a true loss when he passed away suddenly in his 40’s. I think that really had an affect on Pat, as it did most of us. Throughout the 90’s the work here seemed to sustain her. I was always wondering if she would retire and move to some tropical locale. Pat was always very private and we respected that about her. She was always concerned about animals, and I remember her buying dog food for a stray dog in our parking lot one year. She also loved her plants. She could make anything grow here. Pat surprised me most recently when she donated a day of sick time to me during an extended illness, and then again with her eloquent words on a sympathy card when my boyfreind passed away in an accident. I miss her, and hope that her last days were peaceful.

  5. We were saddened to learn of Pat’s passing. We were classmates of hers at St. Mary’s High School, class of 1951. Sue McNamara Cook and Janet McNamara Galante
