Patricia enjoyed collecting hummingbird items, her favorite movie was “The Grinch", and she and Jack enjoyed the love of their cat Sally Ann, their children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and great-great-grandchildren. Patricia and Jack moved to Florida and enjoyed many years there before moving back to Mount Carmel for their remaining years. They had a special song, "Unchained Melody", and enjoyed listening to Elvis Presley. Patricia also loved researching her family history.
