Pat worked as a licensed practical nurse in pediatric care at Waukesha Memorial Hospital for 32 years. She was an avid volunteer and enjoyed volunteering at Waukesha Memorial and with the St. Vincent de Paul Society.  Pat had a generous heart and was always helping those in need.  She found joy in attending her grandchildren’s school events, being in the sun and swimming in warm water pools.
