    Pat and I were friends for 45 years, first meeting at Dayton Hudson Corporation where we were both internal auditors. She was a woman of many accomplishments. She could sheet rock, do basic plumbing, sew beautifully and was a one time violinist. She loved physical activity and raced in cross country skiing, running, cycling and canoe racing. She also sailed and rode her own Fat Boy Harley. She loved animals and hers were all rescues. She is survived by her cat Tuffy too.

    Pat was a great friend and often a confident of mine. She also was a witness to my wedding many years ago,

    Her last years were physically hard but she was always upbeat when we chatted by phone (I now live in Arizona) or when I saw her in person, joking about her total hair loss from an allergic reaction to an anesthetic.

    Pat was kind, generous and sometimes bossy and imperious. I shall miss her.
