Curtis, Colleen and Nicole, I am so sorry for the loss of your Mom. She always had a big smile on her beautiful face. She faced cancer with grit and grace. I feel very lucky to have known her.
from: Diana Tafton: 07-16-2021

When Patty’s cancer resurfaced, I got an inside closeness to her family as opportunities arose for me to help with her needs. Colleen, Nicole, and Curt, (and rest of family,) your Mom was extremely proud of each of you. And the time and care you cut into your lives to help her, did not go unnoticed, esp. in hers eyes. To lose Mom, is so difficult. But your strong, follow her example. Hold onto to those memories she gave you., as I will. Praying for you.💕😘

Pat started a Women’s golf league at Taconic for Williams employees many years ago and was gracious to those of us who were inexperienced golfers. Anyone who had golf clubs was welcome to play. Cheerful, vivacious and encouraging. She was a lovely person.

My deepest condolences to you Nicole and your brother and sister. Your Mother was a wonderful person. She has gone through a very serious illness these past few years and never once did I ever hear her complain. She had kind words and encouragement for others who were battling their illnesses.

What a loss to your family and our community. "Killer" as I always called her (because she'd kill me on the lanes & the fairways), made everyone feel special. Whether it was her huge smile or her way of including everyone in the fun. We will surely miss that wonderful lady. Positive thoughts go to all of her family members.

What a privilege to have known Pat for many years when she played for the North Adams Fall Foliage pageant to all the years we worked together at Williams College. Pat brought a smile to everyone's face. When Judy awoke from cancer surgery Pat was next to the bed having gone thru it herself. We can't say enough about what a special lady she was.
