Pat, I know you are in Heaven dancing and singing with the angles. You wii be missed by so many. I will miss that dry sense of humor and mischievous smile. I pray peace and comfort for Jim and your beautiful family that you so marvelously raised!

Jim, I believe our Lord created Pat for you. Pat gave alot of herself to others, but you were to one that had her heart. She was a wonderful mother. She loved the elderly and was a gentle and loving caretaker.
This world was better because of Pat and she will be missed a lot. You can not bring her back but one day you can go to her. From then on, you will never be apart again.

Saddened by this news. Lived across the street from Pat and family in Morton and was a Jr Bridesmaid in Jim and Pat’s wedding.
So very sorry for your loss. May God comfort Jim and family during this difficult time.

I can hear you laugh and see your eyes sparkle. You were full of love, life and laughter. I'm blessed by being family. May the Comforter carry Jim and all those brokenhearted by your absence in his living arms till the trumpet sounds and time shall be no more.

I am so very sorry for your loss. I got to know Pat while playing church league softball with her and Lauri. I will never forget the sight of Pat standing on first base, wearing over sized sunglasses, her glove in one hand and a cigarette in the other. She was real mess, but a joy to be around!
