Patsy was a treasured friend and family member. My best memories of her center around her love and dedication for her job as secretary at Lancaster Primary School. Patsy always had a smile and willingness to help the children and the teachers she dealt with daily. Patsy showed love for all of us! I will always hold her close to my heart!
