An avid golfer, bridge player and Jayhawk sports fan, Pat also enjoyed cooking, entertaining, dancing, writing, and attending movies, plays and musical events. In addition, she volunteered at her church, at hospitals and clinics, and at the election polls and generously gave her time to tutoring students of all ages.
