    Pat was married to my cousin Richard for many years. I remember her sweet spirit and kindness when I was a young woman. Due to living far from Illinois in my adult years I didn’t see her for many years but heard about her from time to time from my family and of course Facebook. I pray for peace and rest for her family during this difficult time and know Pat is in a wonderful place and is pain free and released from the cares of this world. She was a lovely lady who showed her spiritual fruit in all that she accomplished during her lifetime.
