Up until a stroke in 2016, Patricia was a very social person and was the life of the party and liked to play pranks on other people. She loved her sons dearly and her face lit up anytime children were around. She also loved to read, do crossword puzzles and was an avid NY Yankees fan. She and her husband liked to complete jigsaw puzzles and after completing them, would frame them. They especially liked to complete puzzles by Thomas Kincade. She liked to plant flowers around the house and around a large windmill in the yard. Patricia loved animals and was quite fond of cats, especially Midnight and Shadow, who over the past years never left her side.
