I will truly miss seeing Pat for her haircuts. Over the years, I have enjoyed spending time with her. She had such a great sense of humor and friendly personality. We laughed and talked about her gardening and cooking, her husband, Don and her kids and grandkids. She loved you all so much 💗. I'm so sorry for your loss.

My condolences to the entire Francescon family. It is a great loss to lose such a wonderful person that is such a big part of the Francescon family. I have many fond memories of her along with mr. Francescon. You could always count on a big smile and kind words from both of them. They were a big part of the st. Ann and Normandy community growing up. They raised a great family and she will be sorely missed but never forgotten. God bless her and your entire family.

Uncle Don, Donny and Tony, So sorry to hear of Aunt Pat's passing. I'll always remember her as a very great Cardinals fan and having a huge crush on Dal Maxville, the Cardinal's shortstop. It was always an extra special treat when we visited Johnston City and you guys happened to be there as well. I really loved getting a chance to visit again with her at the Kowalis reunions. I'm sorry we didn't get to have more due to covid in 20 and 21. God love her and she can now be with Tony, Ann, and all her brother and sisters that have passed before. My thoughts and prayers are with you all on this day. God bless yo all.
