Pat cherished all time spent with family and friends. Selfless; always putting others needs above her own; she was generous, kind, loving and full of grace. She cherished every moment with her two grandsons, spoiling them with love and affection. She was a family oriented person who opened her home to everyone she met, including those with four legs and covered in fur!
She retired from Corning Inc. in 1998 following 39 years of service as an Executive Assistant. The ladies retiree’s luncheons were one of her favorite events to attend; often turning into hours of laughter and memories.
