Aunt Pat, my Godmother...how deeply I am saddened to hear you are gone. Forever you will be missed, I love you! Take my mom's hand and fly with the angels 💜

My prayers are with the family at this difficult time. Pat was a spunky, out spoken, and loving person who cared deeply for people and life! She will be remembered and missed, and be honored in the hearts of those people she touched. Love and hugs Paula

I only met Pat in 2018, after we became neighbors. I remember the first snowfall and I wasn't ready, had no one to clear my driveway. Before I even MET this family next to me, Jim was out there snow blowing my driveway. I remember I was so touched and marched over there with some cookies the next day and that's when I met Pat. Noooo, they didn't want any money. "That's just how we do", she said. I got to know her some over chatting and text and she was always so kind to me and we had some laughs. I could tell that she was all about family. My deepest sympathy to Jim, Mike and the whole family.

Kurt Buchholz I worked with Pat at Stop-N-Go. I was in my forties and my first retail job. Possibly my favorite job, she was my favorite boss. I had to leave to care for my parents. Then I worked convenient stores until I retired. Bright, sweet woman, honest and tough.

Patty and Jr. we’re close to me and my brother’s age. Our fathers were brothers and we were cousins. She grew up in the big city and we in a farm town about an hour west. We were always glad to see Patty and uncle’s family when we went to the city. We ate Jimmy’s Red Hots and great big meals from Aunt Helen. They would come to visit us in rural Illinois and it was always Patty that would play with us like part of the family. I always recounted the stories of when her dad would have a large can or jar of coins and splash them on our driveway and the seven cousins would have a scramble. Patty and the family were always a treat. I also have recounted the story of when my older sister, Kathy, and I were invited to their home overnight. What an experience, with her older sisters (teens or young adults) were getting ready for date night and “ratting” their hair. Hair spray was flying. Jr and Patty invited us to play stick-ball in the alley. She was always engaging and fun to be with. The highlight, though, was when her dad sent Patty, Jr., my sister and me across the 6-lane Chicago street to the movies and watch King Kong versus Godzilla and Jerry Lewis in the Nutty Professor. My first time at the movies. Patty lead the gang like she was the adult and always welcoming. We all lost track and nearly 20 years passed after her dad and mine passed away. Then, our Uncle Dave found us on Facebook and we all met in Chicago (from Arizona). A great reunion and her personality hadn’t changed a bit. Great family core values, and always welcoming. Our final meeting was just a few years ago when my wife (Arbutus) and grandson (Shade) accompanied me on a business trip in Chicago. She never failed to engage, welcome and share her life with all. We met her with Jim and Michael. We always meant to get back, but Patty and I stayed in touch on Facebook and sometimes text. I’ll miss her , but know that her faith and her strength in family, and love of life will place her right where God wants her in Heaven. God bless Patty and her family/my family of Lewis’.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
