Patty was fun to be around, she loved music, was very witty, and always had something to say. Pat was a woman of faith and enjoyed praying the rosary. She was a member of the Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church in Opole, where she also volunteered.
Pat is survived by her siblings Carol (Leonard) Cichon, Little Falls; Dave (Marcie) Sowada, Blaine; Stanley (Janice) Sowada, Avon; and other family and friends.
