    My fondest memory of Mrs. Pattanite was Tammie’s bridal shower. We met to her home to plan it. She was very hospitable and reminded us that we should not do anything that might embarrass our own grandmothers, as many of the people attending would be their age. She organized and helped us choose the menu and decorations. She helped us find a venue and she took responsibility for the majority of the expenses. We were young and foolish girls, but she understood. She made us all laugh that day.

    She loved her children very much. She knew them and all their gifts and talents.

    Rest in peace Mrs. Pattanite! May God bless your family and friends with peace in this time of sorrow.

    Michael, Richie, Robbie and Diane – So sorry to hear about Aunt Rose Mary. I will be unable to attend the services on Thursday but want to send my condolence.
    I have extremely fond memories of your mom and dad. As a kid it was so much fun running back and forth to your house on the corner (with a Beauty Shop, how cool was that) and my grandparents house on Taylor Street. When I had my own daughter and my grandparents would watch her, she experience the same fun. Your mom was the most nicest, sweetest, gentlest, big hearted, loving and I could go on. Hold on to those wonderful memories.
    Your mom is in heaven with your dad and my family… what a card game that will be. Love to your family.
