Patti had a zest for life and enjoyed being with people. She was quick with a come back and wasn't shy about offering her opinion. She loved playing bingo and an occasional trip to the casino. She enjoyed time spent with her family, Nathaniel, Noah and Harmony were her biggest joys in life. She loved the people she worked with at CU Recovery and so wanted to go back.
