Pat possessed an incredible internal strength and love for life. She worked as an accounting clerk for Peebles Department Store in Waldorf and the Southern Maryland Credit Bureau in LaPlata. She was an active member of Christ Church, Chaptico. She enjoyed many hours of craft work and was very accomplished at her favorites of ceramics, doll making, and Christmas wreaths. Pat loved to cook and there was never any question about who would be the head chef for any holiday feast.
She made many friends along the way, and anyone who met her knew she had a heart of gold.
Above all else, Pat cherished being a wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. Being Mom and “Maw-Maw” was her greatest passion and accomplishment. She was always there to listen and provide support, never missing a birthday or chance to share in a family celebration. Devoted, dedicated, caring and loving, Maw-Maw made sure all in her family knew they were loved.
