  • I’m going to miss Pat. I am going to miss all the stories she used to tell me. She will be greatly missed!

  • I grew up in the Bird household, since Susan has always been my BFF. Pat was truly my second Mother, and I lovingly called her #2 (#2 Mom) and I was her #2 daughter, to this very day. She was always fun loving, yet when she would say “girls!” we knew she meant business. She loved garage sales and was always here whenever I had one. When I was diagnosed w/cancer, she was also one of the first ones at my home with a Angel that says, “Miracles Happen”.
    When I visited her this week, I told her how much I cherish the memories of growing up at her house, and how much I love her. Don has known her and Danny a long time also, and he feels the same. We will surely miss her and will look forward to the day we see her again.
    Fly high, #2! 💞

  • Our thoughts and prayers are with the family. We knew Pat from the First Baptist Church in Fredericktown. She always had such a big smile.

  • So sorry for the passing of your loved one, many blessings and prayers at this time of sorrow.

  • Sending sincere sympathy to Pat’s children & husband Danny. My husband Dan rode to Gm with Danny for many years, attended the same church for years & have many fond memories of those years.
    Blessings, Dan & Gert Hines

  • Sad to hear of Pat’s passing. She was a classmate and a friend during our school days.

  • To Susan, Ron and Dan,
    Our deepest sympathy to you in the passing of your loved one.
    We have been friends for many years and remember the good times we had at Myrtle Beach with Dan and Pat and here at home. Our thoughts and prayers are with Dan. We know how difficult this is for all of you during this time and the days ahead.

  • Ron, I knew your mom was a fighter and we know she fought a good fight for over 6 years to be with you and your dad. She will pass the pearly Gates with pride.

  • I am sorry to hear of Pat’s passing. I just loved her. She was in the same room as mom in Eastern Star years ago. If it wasn’t for her, I don’t think my mother would have made it there, she was such a help and advocate for her. Blessings to your family.

  • Susan and family,
    You have our deepest sympathy on the death of your mother. God’s grace and mercy be with you in this time of loss. Cherish your memories. Sincerely, Diana and Robin Scott

  • Danny, Susan and Ronnie and family,
    So sorry for your loss. We know she fought a good fight, as we Mother’s do when we love our children and husbands so much. But she is now reaping her reward. I can remember the times that Susan was at our house and I always knew what they were doing when I smelled Chef Boydardee pizza coming from the kitchen.
    You had a good Mother and you will surely miss her, but she is at peace now.
    Sending Love and prayers,

  • Dear Dan ,
    Sorry to hear of Pat’s passing. I have been gone from the Fredericktown area for many years but have fond memories of you and Pat in our younger days. Please accept my heartfelt condolences.

  • Meredith & I are truly sorry for your loss. Your mom was a great lady. I remember a smile and the comment “Ron’s upstairs” or later on “Ron’s downstairs” when I visited.

  • Pat’s family, I was a resident at Morrow Manor back in Jan. And Feb. Was in the room beside Pat. She would come over almost every day for a couple hours. to visit. We had the best conversations and enjoyable times. She was such a wonderful person and loved life. I will always remember the memories we had.
