  • My condolences to that family. I knew Pat in the 1970’s when she worked at Marion Power Shovel. Pat worked in the Data Processing Department for Gary Heller. We bowled on the same bowling team. We had a card club that met once a month at each of our homes. I still have a picture of our bowling team, Janet, Anita, Lora, Phyllis. Pat was lots of fun and we all loved her. We all lost touch and went our separate ways. It was nice to view the video and see the good life Pat enjoyed with her family.

  • Pat will be missed by her family and friends. Keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers.
    I altered clothing for Pat and Rick over the years, We laughed about them both being “vertically challenged “.
    I was happy to help. The last outfit for I altered for Pat was a beautiful burgundy for Matt’s wedding last month. The smile on Pat’s face said it all. Another Angel in Heaven 🙏

  • I grew up with Pat’s kids. I spent a lot of time at the Morrison residence and also worked in Rick’s pizza shop. I always enjoyed my conversations and time spent with Pat. She was so proud of her boys. The video montage is wonderful. Pat will be missed dearly.
