She loved to travel, in fact, she visited every state in the United States, including Alaska and Hawaii. She also traveled to Australia, Europe, and Canada.
Patty loved spending time with her family, especially cooking for family and friends. She would ride the bus to pick up children for church and the children called her Miss Betty Crocker. She just loved helping in any way she could, for years, she volunteered at the hospital.
Patty was a member of the First Assembly of God in Caldwell; she was the first face you would see coming into church, greeting you with a smile and a hug. She was a prayer warrior and actively involved in the women’s ministry. She loved her church family.
