    Phil, Jeff and families, I am not sure where to begin since our two families go way back. I want to say that we are sorry to hear about your mom Pat. She was always sweet, nice, kind and would do anything to get us what we wanted/needed. Always there to run us around to practice, games, and etc. before we had our drivers license. We have so many fond memories and there are to many to share on this. Phil and Jeff, you know what they are or you can relate to them. We want to give you both a big hug but under the circumstances this will have to wait until we see each other once again. Our hearts go out to you and your families. Take care of your families and I hope God blesses you all.

    So sad for you all. Pat was a very special person. I know she loved her family dearly. I was with her every Thursday at 9:00, there was not a time that she didn’t talk about her Sons and Grandchildren. Jeff you took such good care of her, she said she didn’t know what she would have done without you, Samantha she was so happy for all the visits you had when you brought the boys and spent time with her, it was the first thing she’d talk about with a big smile on her face. Pat always told me how blessed she was, and she love the Lord. She’s a beautiful Angel in heaven and I have no doubt we will meet again. Prayers to all of the family and friends.

  11. June Palmer May 6, 2020 at 7:24 am

    I always enjoyed working with Pat on Real Estate deals. I worked with her when I worked at the banks and I also worked with her as a fellow Realtor. She was a very kind and professional lady. She blazed the trail for female Realtors in Clinton County. Thank you Pat! You are missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family.

  16. Brenda (DIrcks) Stevens May 6, 2020 at 10:30 am

    Pat graciously accepted me, as a rookie real estate agent, and was one of the greatest mentors through my realtor career at Village Square Realty. She was an excellent teacher and coach for all who wanted to learn and did this effortlessly and always with a smile. The last time I saw Pat was during Grandparents Day at Clinton Prairie Grade School. Still the same graceful, friendly and lovely Pat. I will forever cherish the memories of happy times and places, especially the luncheon with Pat, Odel Strange and myself, so many years ago. Rest peacefully, beautiful lady.

    Zack and Alex and Phil & Jeff and the family, so sorry for the loss of your grandma and mother. She was a great lady. Think of her, that she is with Steve and Sylvia and baby Lee and Isaac and her husband. And they are now all watching over you all everyday and every minute. You all will feel her around you at times and know it is her. Zack and Alex if you need anything let me know and if you just want to talk that is fine too I’m up late, your dad used to call and talk to me late at night sometimes and I would sit and listen and that’s all it took. My hugs love and prayers are with you all at this time of your loss. Love you Bobby & Donna (Richardson) Bray and Tracy & Jak, & Nick

    In all respects, Pat was an amazing woman. She set the standard for women pioneering the frontiers of business and the workplace. And she accomplished so very much in that respect. Still, she is best remembered by the family who followed her lead, and who loved her with all their hearts.
