Pat was an active member of the First Baptist Church in Fredericktown for over 50 years. She held many positions in the Church and was known for her outgoing personality and the fun twists she would put on social events, such as Spaghetti Dinner Fundraiser with a Chinese theme. Always creative and full of energy, she created fond memories with her experiences in Circle and Card Club. As youth leader at the Church, Pat was able to encompass her love of camping by taking the youth on Mission trips. One of those trips even needed to bypass the traffic caused by Woodstock in 1969.
Pat was also a seamstress and put her skills to good use making costumes for the many lip syncs the family participated in at the Fredericktown Tomato Show from 1994 to 2007. She was frequently cast as the “crazy lady” and always gave an over-the-top performance to the delight of the audience and her family. Pat’s sense of humor brightened lives and made guests in her home feel welcomed. She always made time for the events that mattered most to her family and could frequently be seen at games, concerts and recitals. She was the epitome of a social butterfly and embraced that quality.
Friends may call on Thursday from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Snyder Funeral Home in Fredericktown. A funeral service will be held on Friday at 11 a.m. at the First Baptist Church of Fredericktown with Rev. Timothy Mohon officiating. Burial will follow in Forest Cemetery in Fredericktown.
