Pat was a wonderful wife, mom, grandma, sister, aunt and friend. She graduated from Pearland High School in 1958, of which she was on the first girls basketball team to advance to state finals in 1956. For most of her career she worked at Brown and Root and retired as Supervisor of International Travel. She was proud of her career and enjoyed sharing stories from her time working.

Pat was a Past Worthy Matron Order of the Eastern Star #634, 1993-1994. Being a member of Eastern Star was very near and dear to her heart.
Pat loved music of all genres. Some of her favorites were old country music, gospel and mo-town. She loved George Jones, Ray Price and Elvis. On Saturday mornings, she played her favorite records as she and her children cleaned and danced. Pat was the ultimate host – she enjoyed entertaining guests and her family. Her late husband, Theophil would cook while she baked. She was affectionate and loved being around people.
