Patty was so active in the community and at St. Mary’s for many years. Volunteering at St. Mary’s Outreach and helping with the funeral meals were just a few of her many talents. The Hamm family has so many happy memories of Patty when we were neighbors and close friends growing up. Patty always had an open door and you were always welcome. She will be missed by many. Sandy, Mike and Bill and your families will continue to be in our thoughts and many prayers. RIP Patty

My first remembrance of Patty is, as me a 5 year old, meeting her on South Main St as she was out strolling with her new baby, Sandy. My image of her as the kindest of persons has never changed. A truly lovely person, I will miss her. I regret having missed her funeral and the chance to visit with her family and friends.
