Born in Washington, D.C. on October 11, 1943 and raised in Takoma Park. M.D. Pats attended Regina High School before attending Holy Name of Jesus Hospital School of Nursing. And finished her education with a P.H.D from the University of Maryland. After serving two tours of duty as a nurse in Vietnam, she was honorably discharged with rank of Captain. She then was a Professor in Health Education at the University of MD. Pats owned and operated a private bariatrics business as well. She worked as a nutrition coach for the Washington Capitals and Baltimore Skipjacks. Patsy loved to bring family and friends to the games to support the teams. “Drink your water!” She finished her career with NITP, where she provided workshops on health, wellness, nutrition, and stress reduction for multiple government agencies. Pat was very active in the All Saints Episcopal Parish in Sunderland, MD. She created a family with her friends from her church groups. She was a hospice volunteer and as an avid gardener and birder, Pat lovingly maintained the church’s labyrinth. She filled her life with the love for her friends, family, books, plants, wine, rescue dogs, hockey, baseball, and it goes without saying, but she loved her shopping. Whether you knew her as Patricia, Patsy, Pats, or Pat, her absence will be noticed and she will be greatly missed.
Special thanks for the care provided by Michelle Bartlett and others in the last year of her life, which enabled Pat to stay in her beautiful home that she created with the love of her life, Turbo, until her death.
