I remember Pat and Richard as Red Cross Clowns. They were the volunteers we turned to when Red Cross decided to start a clown troop They led classes, set up and coordinated events, took experienced clowns to conferences in Wisc. They were always fun loving and a great couple to be around. My condolences to family. Will always remember her as a very lovely lady, with a heart of gold.

Sorry to hear of Pat's passing. She was always so friendly and upbeat when I had the pleasure of talking with her. Thoughts and prayers to David and the rest of the family. Take Good Care.

So very sorry to hear of Pat's passing. The K-Wings gained a guardian angel, for sure. She will be missed.
