Patricia retired from the Teamsters Local # 710 after 30 years of service. She was an avid shopper who loved spoiling her family. Throughout the years Patricia never had an empty house. Her door was always open. She took in countless people who she enjoyed caring for and welcoming to her family. She will be dearly missed by all who knew her.
