Patricia loved everything about the hill country and was enamored by the beautiful landscape that it had to offer.

Embroidery and reading were also a couple of her hobbies but above all Pat’s favorite activity was supporting her grandkids and great grandkids by attending every sporting event and ceremony possible. She has been a cornerstone of the family and her life was impactful to everyone that had the opportunity to know her. She also loved helping in any way she could, she wanted to see everyone in her family succeed and would do everything in her power to help make that possible.
