I worked at Eden Park with Patricia in the late 70''s and 80''s. I remember her kindness and how she would do her job "top notch" or not at all. She was a great person all the way around. She was always so upbeat and cheerful and, had a great sense of humor.
To Patricia''s family, I would like to extend my deepest heartfelt condolence in the loss of such a kind woman as Pat.
