Patty passed away at home on December 21, 2004 surrounded by her family. My wife, the love of my life, my best friend. Patty entered my life and filled it with joy everafter. She was an incomparable wife. She was a devoted, unconditional, and beloved mother. She was a cherished sister and aunt. She was a ‘Grammy’ who dearly loved that role in her life and showed it abundantly. She was a loyal and caring friend. She loved the Lord with all her heart, and on bended knee, told Him so each morning and each night of her life. What a joyous celebration Heaven must have had when my Patty arrived. Paul Hodgins
Patty is survived by her husband, Paul; sons, Mark, Kirk Mira, and Mitchell Hybskmann, Brent Hodgins, Tom Hodgins, Michael Dettmer; daughter, Tina Carpenter; grandchildren, April and Chelsea; sisters, Peggy Adam, Maureen Crow, Kathy Kuehn, brother, Jack Foley, and many nieces and nephews.
