A devoted fan of UCONN Basketball and the NY Mets; Pat was blessed with a very special son-in-law, Allen (Donna), who shared her enthusiasm for sports and lovingly assisted with her care. Pat also loved and cared for many family pets through the years, including her beloved "Tiki", who will forever remain in her loving arms to keep her warm.
