Patricia was an active sports enthusiast, she loved playing the game of tennis, and enjoyed bowling participating in league Bowling for Clinton Foods and Chemplex. She also enjoyed playing golf. When she wasn’t playing sports, she was watching it as an avid Iowa Hawkeye fan. She dearly loved her fur-babies – her many Pekingese dogs she had throughout her life. She enjoyed time tending to her flower garden. Patricia treasured the time spent playing cards once a month with her former school friends. Above all, she loved her family very much and will be greatly missed.
