  1. So sorry to hear of Patty’s passing. Although I didn’t get to see her too often , we did keep in touch and I loved her dearly. She will be truly missed.

  2. So sad to hear this news. I spent many hours with her in 2003, when our sons were together in Iraq. Our deepest sympathy to her family.

  3. Hey Patty u r with Ron now and even though you are no longer here your spirit will be for sure. I know one thing for sure your boys will carry on with smiles and memories of how great you and Ron were and they will know how proud you were of them.. Now you are home with God you can look down on your family and sprinkle them with love. rest in peace

  4. Hey Patty I am so sorry you left us so early and for some crazy reason we someday have to go. But, you are with Ron again which is awesome and gives your boys a peace of mind with a smile… I know one thing those boys adored you and they know how proud you are of them and that will always carry in their hearts along with your beautiful smile. Rest in peace lovely lady!

  5. Our deepest heartfelt sympathy goes out to Patty’s whole family and her friend of many years. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all through this most difficult time.. RIP Patty, you will be missed

  6. Our hearts go out to the family. Now living in SC, I was browsing through the county website and saw this, so very sorry. She and Ron were the best neighbors on E. 6th St and she helped us out so much when our first daughter was born in 1983. Her spirit and spunk will always be around, but she will be missed indeed.
