Patricia had a passion for driving. She could be found exploring the backroads of Vermont, on one of multiple 6000+ mile cross-country trips, or driving Bus 19 for KRSD for over 20 years, she loved being behind the wheel and on the move. She enjoyed the summer concerts at the Newbury dock and tending her flower and vegetable gardens. She adored every animal that crossed her path but mostly, Patricia loved her family deeply and devoted herself to their wellbeing.
Patricia is predeceased by her daughter Teresa and sisters June and Shirley.
