She found her passions in oil painting, collecting and restoring antiques, reading volumes of historical books covering a multitude of topics, and spending time with dear friends at a local doughnut shop. She enjoyed time with family and never missed a special occasion. She valued life and created the most magnificent museum within her home. Patricia will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
