I was so sorry to hear of Pat's death from my daughter Karen Pagano. When I was living in Ogden I got to know Pat through Phyllis and the League of Women Voters, and later as Sue's Mom. I know you will all miss her very much, and you have my heartfelt sympathy. I hope you will find joy in remembering the good times.

Susan and Kathy, so sorry for the loss of your mother - Phyllis and Ray, for the loss of your sister. I have been friends with Susan for many years, and Pat was always just "mom" to me. She has done so much for me over the years, and I truly thought of her as a second mom. I will miss her very much.

I was both shocked and saddened to read of Pat's death. I had talked to her at the Ogden Athletic Club only a short time ago. She and I chased a bit at Ogden High and she was a favorite friend. I will miss seeing her at O.A.C.

I was shocked and saddened to read of Pat's death. It hasn't been too long ago I talked to her at the Ogden Athletic Club. She and I chased a bit while we were schoolmates at Ogden High and she was definitely a favorite among my friends. I will miss seeing her at OAC. Joyce Parry Wright

Susan and Kathy, I am so sorry for your loss. You mom was one of my favorite people! I have always respected, loved and admired her, she did tremendous things all through her life. I will miss her dearly. Thanks so much for her children's books. They are a treasure to me and when I use them, she will be in my heart each time. She will be missed by many. Love you aunt Pat.
