She was born on May 8, 1943 in Pittsburgh, Penn. She grew up in Florida where she attended Seabreeze High School and Cosmetology School, and came to Alaska in 1970. She and Larry married in 1983, she used to say the adventure really began then. Pat loved anything to do with the outdoors – hunting, fishing, the ocean, and photography.

She was an amazing kind hearted woman who will be missed by many.
