Pat made her career as a bookkeeper and office manager for several companies in the Youngstown area before her retirement in 2008. During her retirement, Pat was an active member of St. Thomas the Apostle Church in Vienna where she was an RCIA teacher and eucharistic minister. Pat enjoyed sharing her faith with the community.
