Pat was a very active volunteer in her parishes, and at Christ King Grade School, Marquette High School and Marquette University. Pat and her husband George received as a couple, the All University Service Award. A graduate of Holy Angels High School, Pat further received a degree in Liberal Arts from Marquette University. As an active alumnus, Pat was very involved with AMUW serving as a Board Member and Board President. Her Marquette University ties ran deep and she was proud that Cobeen Hall, a campus dorm, was named after her father Charles, honoring his 40 years of service at the University. 

Pat lovingly raised her five children while actively volunteering in church and school activities. She was a Cub Scout den mother, mentored a Girl Scout troop as they earned their Marion Award and was active in the Christ Child Society. As an empty nester she volunteered at Penfield Children's Center using her loving and nurturing ways to comfort babies born with opioid addictions. Pat was also a member of Westmoor Country Club. Special thanks to the staff at St. Camillus for their loving care. In lieu of flowers, memorial suggested to: Marquette University High School, Juvenile Diabetes Association or the St. Camillus Foundation.
