    When recently asked in an interview, “What event in your life do you feel has shaped you the most?” Pat responded with, “Probably marrying my husband Floyd 60 years ago and having three sons, daughter-in-laws and grandchildren.  It’s been a great life and I am so blessed to have lived so many years.”
