So very sorry to hear of Pat's death. I grew up on a farm just south of Aggie and Sam Olson so knew Nancy and Pat. My prayers are with her family and siblings. A few years ago Pat called me and we had a nice visit.

I met Pat several years ago from an add I had placed in the West Central Tribune for my house cleaning business. During the time I cleaned for her and her husband Ron, Pat and I became very close friends. Words cannot describe what she meant to me and how grateful I am to the Lord for bringing us together. I feel so privileged to have gotten to know her. She had a tremendously giving and tender heart. Her hospitality skills and cooking were a great inspiration to me. She made an indelible impression that will forever be on my heart and I will miss her presence on this earth so very, very much! I am so grateful to have gotten to know her family. They were all so precious to her!
