    Jenny, Rosemarie and family; We extend our sincere sympathy to you and all of Pat’s family. She was such a hard worker and had a great since of humor. May she now rest in peace with our Lord.

  2. Jenny, Rosemarie, you have my deepest sympathy with the loss of your sister Pat.

    I worked with her at Nelson’s Rexall Drugs for a period of time before she went back to Al’s Drug Store. Every minute was fun working with her and her sense of humor. She made time go by fast on nights when it was snowing and slow in the store. I will always remember her as a friend with a smile.

  4. Sorry for your loss, I worked with Pat at Alpine Village Pharmacy while I was in high school & college. Prayers for the family.

    So very sad to hear of Pat’s passing, we had so many great times together.
    She will certainly be missed by all.
