Pat enjoyed entertaining family and friends at her various homes and weekend homes in Ocean City, NJ and at her final home on the Corsica River on the Eastern Shore of Maryland.
A voracious reader, she also beautifully played her cherished Steinway piano - a mid-life gift from her husband - and loved a home filled with music and interesting conversation.
Over her lifetime, she was an avid knitting and needlepoint aficionado and was able to travel to interesting places all over the world like China, France, Germany, Italy, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong and Tahiti.
Pat will be missed by her very large family and all her many dear friends, after a long bout with dementia, she is finally at peace and playing beautiful music once again.
