“Pat” accepted Jesus into her life in 1974 and shortly after decided on Bible School. She graduated from Rhema Bible College in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma in 1978. Pat was an incredible woman of faith with great personal and professional integrity. She was humble, kind, generous, forgiving, and selfless. She was graced with rare and quiet wisdom gleaned from her daily study of God’s Word. She loved the Lord with all of her heart and it was evident in everything she did. Her hobbies included her church activities, making Christmas stockings for her grandchildren and loving the people around her. From being a foster mom, to opening a home for unwed mothers to volunteering at her local food pantry, praying for her family and friends and much more. Her life exemplified her love for Jesus. She truly lived out her faith. Her greatest joy was spending time with her precious grandchildren and great grandchildren whom she adored and treasured so very much. Her family and friends are forever grateful for who she was and all she has given.
