Patty lived a life of service in medicine. A truly caring physician, she spent much of her professional career in community health, corrections facilities, and other such underserved locales. She was a staunch advocate for mental health in every way.
At a personal level, Patty loved spending time in the kitchen, especially cooking Sunday dinners for her family and friends, bringing everyone back home each and every week. She was a prolific reader, and treasured her broad collection of books. She cherished her children.
One of her favorite hobbies was recording their lives through her photography and the volumes of scrapbooks that she created for each of them.
