  1. Pat was a gracious lady and wonderful person. I have many warm memories of her hospitality and fun adventures as she included me for holidays and visits to her home. She holds a special place in my heart. I am sending sincere condolences to all the family at this time of loss.

  2. I remember Mr and Mrs Whited fondly. Years ago, I delivered the newspaper to their home. They used to let me in when I was there to collect. As a kid, I loved the tree mural on their living room wall. I’m very sorry for your loss.

  3. Heartfelt condolences to our Cousin Pat’s family. She will be missed. She was so welcoming to us when we visited her a several years ago & what a wonderful host she was. Martha has wonderful memories of her family as a child, spending the Holidays with Pats family. Much love Martha, Kirsten & Robert
