Pat was born and raised in Wakefield and was a graduate of Wakefield Memorial High School class of 1960. She worked as a machinist until retirement at USM Corp/Harmonic Drive.

Pat’s greatest joy in life was being a mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. She never missed an opportunity to spend time with her family. She always enjoyed spending time at the lake house, going for boat rides and watching her grandchildren play.

She had a great love for reading, bargain shopping and spending time with her lifelong best friend, Deanna Dulong.
