This is especially sad for me to hear as Pat was one of the people that made friends with me when I entered PHS in senior year - and that in its self is very hard. I will always remember her smile, she was always a good listener and always seemed to make a hard situation better or at least got me laughinh
I lived just up the hill from her home on Spring Valley on Kaywin. I really do not know how our friendship developed but I remember so many times just hanging out, talking, doing hair, makeup, complaining about our siblings. I had a part time job at the bakery ?Trautsch? on Forest I'd get in trouble when she'd come in cause we'd talk and hang out and I ghot in trouble cause I would clean the same class display for an hour. So many memories of double dating and the many required trips up to NY state- ?Long Pond?.and trips to the shore.
We remained friends after highschool for a few years more. we both moved to Morris County . She married Lou Competeille and they lived in an area off the 10 - ?Denville? I too was living in morris county in Roxbury Township so we were in touch for a few more years before I moved to California in '78.
Aww sweet funny Pat. It would be nice if we had reconnected at some point but it did not happen. I hope her passing was not long lived.
