Pat was always ready for a trip or a ride to anywhere, often riding
the TAWC Bus to her appointments and taking the long way
home just to enjoy the sights. She was fond of gardening,
lighthouses, covered bridges, taking trips by ships or trains,
Broadway musicals, old movies, Big Band music, Penn State
football games and anything social. She had many friends and
made new ones during every outing. Special friends in her life

Mike Flagstad, and hair stylist Sheila Gema at Shear Madness.
She was well known for her Sunday family dinners, Christmas
hard candy, delivering cookies and handing out chocolates to all
