She had a profound love for gardening, which was showcased by her three “yard of the month” awards that were won for her meticulous and detailed arrangements of flowers.
On Friday nights you could count on finding Patsy at Potomac Speedway cheering on her grandson PJ and in her most recent years she spent her nights awaiting the return of the boys (PJ, Justin & Jayden) to find out their nightly racing results. After selling the family business in 2012, at which she retired, she spent her remaining years enjoying life in her new home with her grandson PJ, his wife Katherine, and great grandsons Justin and Jayden. She always looked forward to family gatherings with her children and other family members.
