Pat was a full time comedian, however for the last 15 years she earned a living by doing what she loved; working as a paraprofessional in the Special Education Department at Rock Island High School. Pat never met a stranger, especially no one stranger than her. She was a known jokester, and if you ever had a conversation with her, then you definitely laughed with Pat. Pat loved to cook, and fortunately, her family loved to eat. Most of all, Pat loved. She loved her family, friends and the students she worked with.
