To Pat’s beautiful family, My deepest condolences for your loss. What a beautiful and wonderfully fun woman Pat was. I loved her spirit and the twinkling of the eye that let you know she totally enjoyed life. I will always remember her laugh. My most fond memory was shortly before my own mother’s death. Ann and Pat came to see my mom. The four of us had the most wonderful conversation. Deep and spiritual, filled with such meaning. That was the last time I physically saw my mom, as she died the following summer. Thank you Pat for being with us that day. It meant more to me than you will ever know. Much love and prayers to the family. Can’t wait to to get the girls and our mother’s together again. What a conversation that will be! I can hear us laughing now. Much love, Dee & Josh Lizarraga

Pat had one of the sweetest smiles I’ve ever seen. She had a little twinkle in her eye when she smiled that was just so endearing to me. I have so many wonderful childhood memories in the welcoming and warm home that she made for her family. There was almost always homemade cookies to snitch as well🥰. My heart goes out to the Vande Hei family. She was a kind, sweet, happy lady - you were all so very blessed by her. She will be missed by so very many.

I will always cherish the many years since we met when Nick and Chad were at Teddy Bear Day Pre School. The are to this day friends and the 4 of us had many adventures as the boys grew up! I again reunited with Patty doing. her hair in Columbus. We shared many memories of the boys at Sacred Hearts School and various activities and getting the boys together at one another’s homes. I did volunteer work with Patty through those years! I’m so grateful for our reunion doing here hair in Columbus!. It brought back beautiful memories with Nick and Ann as well. May your family find peace and healing through this time! Caryn (DePauw) Olyver
