She spent the last 10 years of her career teaching nursing at the Hocking Technical College in Nelsonville. OH. Patricia was confirmed at Emmanuel Lutheran Church in Lancaster, OH. Over the years, she attended Gloryland Nazarene and Fairfield Christian Church. After retirement Patricia and her late husband returned to the Outer Banks of North Carolina, where she enjoyed fishing and social gatherings with her friends and family.
