Pat was a great friend our family. We use to stop and visit on our return from Diane's mother in Minnesota. She and Skip were great mentors and friends to our family. Skip use to call our youngest , Elizabeth, "Little Bit". May she rest in peace.

So sorry to hear about Pats passing. Losing your Mother is one of the hardest things you’ll ever have to go through. Our sympathy extends to the entire family. God bless!

My deepest sympathy to Pat’s family. I have fond memories of her as a very loving wife and mother.Pat was a very special lady and great fun. In my teen years, I was a babysitter for
LuAnn, Denise, and Joe. They were pretty little then but quite active! My thoughts and prayers will be with you during this difficult time. Cherish the memories!

Dear Rae, David, Cole, Jasper and the extended Martin family,

It is never easy to mourn the passing of a parent or grandparent and especially since Pat was the last of her generation. We enjoyed meeting Pat and could see where you, Rae, got your values and resilience from. The world is a better place for having her among us. Please, accept our condolences.

Much love, Mary Ann and Robert
