She loved gardening, sewing, cooking, reading and taking care of her animals. There really wasn’t anything that she couldn’t do!

She was known as “Meme” to her grandchildren. They were all very special to her and she made sure each one of them knew that.

The family would like to thank the staff at The Blake and the Blue Bonnet Hospice team for their wonderful and loving care shown to Pat over the past year. We will miss her immensely and will treasure every moment we spent with her.

In Lieu of flowers, donations to Fuzzy Friends or the Humane Society of Central Texas would be a wonderful gift in honor of Pat.
