  1. Pat taught me a lot at Axtell Christian Hospital and Newton Medical Center. Her sense of humor and her kindness made the office a fun place, yet her dedication to her work was an important part of both hospitals’ success.

  2. Pat was such a special and loving person. She will be missed by many. My thoughts and prayers go out to her entire family.
