She committed herself to the Lord in 1974. She loved children and was active in children’s ministry teaching for over 40 years. Pat’s passion for sharing her faith and her ability to speak fluent Spanish empowered her to minister wherever she went. Pat wore many hats (bathing suits, boots) from being an aquatic instructor at the YMCA to a milk tester for the State of Oregon. She was also an employee for Larry’s Music who traveled to many schools in Southern Oregon renting out instruments among her other managerial duties.
She was a caregiver for family members and dedicated to reaching out to people with disabilities. She led by example how to be loving, kind, giving, and compassionate.
Pat enjoyed traveling in and out of the country and was always ready for the next adventure. She was an avid Hidden Valley High School fan attending many sporting and music events of her younger siblings in the early 80’s and she also chaperoned many FFA outings. You could also find her on any given weekend with her “boys” watching games on television (Boston Red Sox, Miami Dolphins and OSU Beavers) or cheering on the younger generation of family athletes at their sporting events in recent years.
