  • Pat was a wonderful neighbor to us at WBDR. We were sad to hear of her passing. May she Rest in Peace.

  • We loved it when Aunt Patti was able to attend our bell club meetings. She was a special lady! Our favorite memory is when she played Auntie Em for our ABA convention program of the Wizard of Oz bells. Nancy was the wicked witch and Kathie was Dorothy. Nancy chased Kathie into her arms. After that she was no longer Aunt Patti but Auntie Em. We will miss seeing her at our bell meetings!
