Patti was an accomplished artist, earning multiple awards throughout her lifetime. She had a passion for nature conservation, human rights, a love for animals, and was well known as a “bleeding heart” due to her many philanthropic donations to her favorite causes. Patti was a member of Mensa, served on its local committee, and enjoyed being able to use her artistic talents to contribute to her local chapter. Patti was gifted in the art of listening and understanding. She was a wonderful friend and knew how to make a person feel validated and seen. She was so proud of her family and took every opportunity to gush about them to all who would listen. She had the best smile.
