It was with great shock and sadness that I heard of Pat's passing. I am so glad that, after more than 50 years after graduation from Mount Penn High School, we were able to reconnect and spend some wonderful time together at our monthly luncheons with the MPHS 1960 "Lunch Bunch". She will be missed. All my sympathies to Pat's family in your time of sorrow.

Robin, Randy & families. My heart goes out to you all. Pat was a good friend & we had many happy times together. We still miss the times Arlan, Pat, Bobbi Jean & Tom & Bob & I would go to Trivia on Wed. nights. We did a lot of good things together. She will be missed at the campground. It won't be the same without Pat on the dancefloor. May she finally rest in peace. Our love to you all.

To Pat's Family - I've know Pat since her and Arlan moved into Eagles Peak Campground so many years ago. Both your parents were wonderful people and enjoyed each other. I'd see your dad helping plant her flowers in the beginning of the spring and your mom polishing the camper. My husband DJ'd for about 18 years and both of them would get out dancing. Your dad with his crutches and your mom for all thefollowing years. They are now together and may they both rest in peace. She will be missed by all. You have so many good memories of both of them to pass on to your children.

To Randy, Robin and family. I wanted to say it saddens me to hear of the loss of your mother. Pat was a loving soul who touched many lives with her joy and presence. It's been some years but the memories I have feel like only yesterday. I will always remember the nights as a kid with Arlan and Pat and my parents going to have dinner and then spending the rest of the evening having snacks and Pepsi, playing games and laughing till I couldn't keep my eyes open. Something I always enjoyed and will cherish. I am glad I had the chance to see them together at the campground after many years before your dad passed. I also had a wonderful time the last time I camped there as well, when I made a surprise visit to her. She once again welcomed me with open arms. We sat and talked for hours, and I even went to play bingo with her. It was such a joy and truly a great time. I'm glad to have had your mom and dad in my life. They both were wonderful people. She is at peace now and together with your father in heaven as they were together in life. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

To Robin & Randy and the family, Sorry to hear of your loss. Pat was a Friend for awhile. The CampGround will never be the same. She and Arlan have been there for ever. They both will be missed there. I know she had a rough time with her illness but now she is a peace! I can remember when we use to go to the dances and didn't leave till we were so tired. But we had fun. And the Sat. dinners out. With Julie and Barry. We did have alot of fun. And she LOVED her dogs !Think of her often. Rest in Peace Pat.
