Patsy was always Patsy! She always put everyone else's needs and preferences ahead of her own. She always maintained a strong “I'm fine” exterior, even if she was silently struggling inside. She always loved unconditionally with her whole heart – especially her family. Her family was her whole heart and there was nothing she would not do or sacrifice for any of them. She always wore a crazy smile, sported her “uniquely Patsy” funny ways and laughed contagiously. And only Patsy, 70 years young, could still always impress with an unassisted head stand. There has never been and will never be another wife, mother, sister, daughter or friend quite like her; she leaves an irreplaceable void. If you knew her, you loved her and will remember always, Patsy.
