She returned to the farm following marriage to Lawrence Love in 1953. They purchased their first Jersey cow that year and began farming together. This herd of Jerseys continues today managed by her son Don.  Pat loved her cows, and was found in the milking parlor well into her 80’s. Pat’s life was cherished by the lives of her grandchildren Scott and Abby Love.  Her love for cooking and having fun times is a memory of all.
