Patricia dedicated her life to her family. She would say she lives and breathes for her children and grandchildren. Patricia loved the holidays and always made those times feel special like on Thanksgiving where she would have four tables with everything you can think of for food and Christmas. She always had the house decorated, good music and made miracles happen under the tree. Patty loved to cook and did so with her heart on her sleave. She loved music and one thing she did know how to do was dance. Fair to say she had soul. Patty was a strong, happy person who knew what she wanted when she wanted it. She fought up until the day God took her into his kingdom. She lived a hard but beautiful life and left behind an amazing legacy and host of loved ones.
