I'm so sorry Wendall, Robin, LeeAnn and Tom. I loved Patty so much. She held on to her sense of humor even when I know she felt so bad. I will never forget her and her kindness. It was a pleasure being part of the family years ago and trying to be a good nurse to her these past few years. Heaven truly gained an ANGEL

Wendell & family,

So sorry for your loss. I will carry fond memories of Patty. As WHS classmates, we shared many events beyond school: hayrides, birthday parties, some square dances birtday partiesm and 'no-reason-get-togethers'. She, with her beautiful smile, rosy cheeks, and delightful laugh was a ready participant; fun to be around. She will be missed by many of us who were blessed with crossed paths and friendship.

All of you will be in my prayers.

I am very sorry to hear of Patty passing. I worked with her at Marsh in the deli at Shelbyville and looked up to her so much. She was so kind and funny. She was always laughing at "the young ones" telling us one day you will understand. Thoughts and prayers with you all.
