Patsy enjoyed ceramics, knitting, reading and was part of a card club for many years. She loved spending time at the Pocono Mountain cabin that she and Walter purchased in 1983. Patsy had a big heart and she loved others unconditionally. She always made it a point to make people feel comfortable and loved. She made friends no matter the time nor place as people gravitated toward her beautiful and selfless nature. Patsy was known for her gentleness and her quick, unmatched witty one-liners. Her kindness, warmth, patience, and gentle spirit leave a permanent mark on the lives of those who knew her. She was loved immeasurably and will be missed immensely.
