She was a great cook and used her gifts to feed the homeless at the Place of Hope in St. Cloud, MN. She enjoyed making quilts, embroidery, reading and traveling. Patricia loved the church and was very grateful to those at St. Boniface who brought her communion each and every day.

The family would like to extend their sincere appreciation to the angels of mercy from St. Croix Hospice and the many members of St. Boniface who brought friendship, comfort and daily communion to Patricia.
