Pat was born in Oceanside, CA on February 4, 1948. She grew up in Alexandria, VA and spent summers on the Walker family farm in Culpepper, VA taking care of the horses and helping with farm chores.

Pat loved nature and enjoyed spending time outside landscaping, walking on the beach, fishing and gardening. Pat was especially fond of birds and took care of the many birds, squirrels, chipmunks and anything else that wandered into her yard. She made sure that water and food were always plentiful so her feathered friends would thrive. This even included feeding a flock of more than ten wild turkeys that would visit each fall. Pat was a talented artist and over the years created beautiful paintings, drawings and keepsake boxes for others. She passed this passion and talent for art onto her grandchildren. Pat was an avid fan of all the New England sports teams and never missed a Patriots or Red Sox game on television. She proudly cheered the Patriots to four Superbowl wins during her lifetime. In her free time, Pat volunteered for the Cape Wildlife Center, which provides care to injured wildlife. When her children St. were young, she coached her daughter’s softball team and attended countless soccer games and cross country/track meets to watch her children compete.
