"I first met Pat when she interviewed me at Neillsville Memorial Home in 1983 for a nursing position. I was a new graduate and she had the faith in me to hire me and be my supervising nurse. She was a wonderful example of what a nursing supervisor should be. She was there to support and help when needed and stepped back to let me find my way as a new nurse. Hopefully I did her trust well as I have remained at Neillsville Memorial Home (now Care & rehab) for going on 36 years and have been the Director of Nursing for 23 years. She was a wonderful person to know and work with and will be in our thoughts and memories. "

"Aunt Patty was my first childhood playmate. Not long ago, she asked me if I remembered how much fun we had playing together when I was a baby (and when she was a young teenager). I really don't remember anything about having fun but I told her I remembered how she helped me to learn to walk. It happened on a beautiful spring day while my mother visited Grandpa. Patty took me outside to give me a walk on a sidewalk. The sight of that broken, seriously unsmooth surface gave me a fright. I remember protesting, blubbering, "!" It was no use. In an instant, my arms were pulled straight up and I stumbled forward. I/We didn't fall, not once! It pleases me that remembered this as great fun. Rest in peace and happiness. "
