Memories Timeline


  1. What a lovely, spirited lady! Always volunteering her time to set up trips and fun activities for retired members of NHFT 933-R.
    Patricia will be sorely missed. May she Rest In Peace.

  2. I am so Thankful I was able to meet and be a part of Pat’s life. As you know working in the healthcare field we all have that 1 client that clings to your heart ❤️ That is what Pat did to me. I will miss those phone calls day or night. We both have a love for Waters Edge where she met my granddaughters, and hang out at the pool. For my Birthday Pat gave me a White Feather in a glass tear drop with a card saying your my angel some day I will be yours. I will always Cherish this. I Thank the family so much for letting me be a part of her live. God Bless

  3. Rich and family: Sorry to hear of Mom’s passing; your are all in my thoughts and prayers.

  4. The Retired Teachers of New Haven, Local NHFT-933R extend their sympathy to Pat’s family.
    She was an active member of our union and planned many enjoyable trips for our members.
    I admired her spunk and determination. In her later years, Pat came to our meetings using her cane and even came using her wheelchair. That’s dedication. We will miss her.
