My friend since High School. I have many good memories of Pat, including driving around Dandy's listening to "Sugar Pie Honey Bunch" on the radio. She loved that song. We had silly names for us....Pat was Anteater Anthony, Reverie Stoltz was Stork Stoltz, Mary Ellsworth was Eel Ellsworth, Diane Reindt was Rhino Reindt, and I was Porky Painter. Oh the silly things we do in High School! But it does bring back fun memories. I just had breakfast with Pat one year ago, 5 months before she was diagnosed with cancer. Pat had a wonderful family with her husband, 3 daughters and lots of grandkids. She will be missed.

Patty lived near me and we attended St. Irenaeus together. We saw each other more in grammar than we did in high school, but we had some wild times together. She had a great wit and was a sharp dresser. I will always picture her with that big grin on her face.
