So sorry for your loss Pete. Pat was a kind, gentle soul with a sweet smile for everyone. I enjoyed working with her in our Ladies Guild and other projects at St. Ann. She was always ready to lend a helping hand. Roger and I pray that she is in the arms of our Savior this moment, smiling down on all of us. May she rest in peace.

Pat was a wonderful friend to everyone she met. Loyal coworker, hardworking for students and staff.

Pat was a treasure! I loved her as a customer at my mystery and romance bookshop, and as a friend at so many gatherings of the Circolo (the Italian Club of Kalamazoo) over the years. We always had the most interesting conversations. My wife Kim and I will miss her at future gatherings - especially when she would show up with polenta for the Festa potluck. Pete, to you and your family, please accept our deepest condolences.
