I am so very saddened to hear about Pat’s passing. She was my go-to gal in chemistry for many years at St. Peter’s because not only was she extremely knowledgeable, but she was friendly and willing to share that knowledge as well- she will be missed. I’m so sorry for your loss.
So sorry to hear about the passing of Pat. My condolonces to the family.
The last memory I have of Pat is when she called me out to see the new dog that you adopted. She was smiling from ear to ear. I will always remember how happy Abby made her. Pat was a good friend and when i cross trained in Chemistry several years ago, she was always there to lend a hand and help me out. She will be missed. Pat and her family are in my prayers.
My sincerest condolences to Carol and the other members of Pat’s family. Pat was an enthusiastic doll maker, and her doll friends will miss her.
To the family:
So sorry for your loss.
Pat and I worked together @St.Peter’s
She was always pleasant and helpful to me.
For a time, Pat was my patient which allowed me to get to know
her on a deeper level. She was a joy. I will miss her.
I worked with Pat several years ago at Leonard. She was always a lot of fun and enjoyed life. We continued to stay in touch through Christmas cards and facebook. She will be missed and I am sorry for your loss.
To all the Bakers, and extended and related families:
Chrissy, do you remember me??? OLA?????
I was so very surprised and saddened to read of your sister Patty’s passing! My mouth just dropped!
Please accept my deepest and sincerest sympathy for your loss…
I have such fond memories of your mom and sisters coming to visit me at my home on Canton Street, and adorning my daughter Stacey with such a multitude of beautiful and appreciated gifts. We still have the Christmas stockings that either you, Carol, Patty, or your mom crocheted!!! (My memory is not THAT good!)
My prayers will be with you all in the time ahead.
You and your family are in my thoughts,
