Her parents preceded her in death.

Patricia was a graduate of Pike High School, Indianapolis, Indiana Central College, and Purdue University. She served for many years in the fields of medical records management and long-term care. She was joined on the path of her life from the beginning by many loving and steadfast friends and family of many generations who not only benefited from the light of her love and humor, but also from the depth of her soul. From childhood into adulthood and older maturity, she was caring, giving friend who didn't judge and was always there with a joke, a balloon animal, and a hug.

My thoughts of Patty are numerous, we went to grade school & high school together. Many of us traveled together in later years and she named us Devil Women, she made our gatherings lighthearted and often times gave us more to discuss than days gone by. She was a caring, giving friend from childhood to adulthood and on into old age. Didn't judge and was always there with a joke, a balloon animal or a hug - she will be missed, but will be our angel watching over all of us. May she rest in peace. XOXO

Rick, I was so sorry to hear of Patricia's passing. I cannot believe she is gone. I have so many fond memories of coming and visiting you both in Virginia every summer when I was young. It was so much fun. I never had a moment with Patricia where she wasn't trying to make someone laugh. In the toughest of situations she still managed to make me smile. My husband met her shortly after we got married and he thought she was the greatest person he had ever met. He said she was so nice and funny. I only wish he got to know her more because there is so much he would love about her. I am simply heartbroken over losing her. I loved her so very much. May she RIP. If you need anything please let my mom, sister, and myself know.
