  1. Pat knew the workings of Saddleback College as well as anyone and was generous whenever someone needed her advice. . Whenever I had needed to visit the VP of Instruction or the President to ask for something, I would first stop by Pat’s office for the best advice on how to make my approach. She coached me well and as a “team of two” we always got what we needed. Thank you for all your helpfulness, Pat, and for keeping a seat in your office for anyone who needed to laugh, to vent, or just stop in for a moment to recharge. . .

  2. Pat was a delight to know!!! I loved her humor, her kindness and her desire to always be helpful. I could not imagine working at Saddleback College without Pat. Pat was my “go to” person at the college. She always had the answer and she always greeted me with a smile. I loved hearing stories about her grandson.

    I am so sorry for this tremendous loss. I send prayers and good thoughts to her family and friends. Love you, Pat!!

    Pat was one of a kind. She was a true force of nature. She was the person at the college who knew all and could answer our questions and help solve our problems. She was one of the brightest Individuals I have ever met. Pat was a hard worker and a big hearted person who would help those in need of a loving hand and heart. Her kindness stretched to animals too. She never had too many people or animals at her house …….there was always room for more. I was fortunate to be able to work with Pat for many years and to share some good times away from work as her friend. I will never forget you Pat. Thank you for so much.

    Pat was a very special lady in our Administrative and Governance Building for everyone who worked there for the 20 years we were privileged to have her assistance and sweet personality as the heart of that building.
    She was always there with a chair ready and a smile and a positive attitude to brighten the day for everyone!
    I loved her stories and how she brilliantly met difficult challenges with thoughtful suggestions.
    I will always remember her love of her faintly and the animals she rescued and loved them all.
    Yes, a gem in a very critical position who cared for everyone who crossed her path. My mentor and sweet “boss”.
    Dear PAT

    Reflecting on these kind words of loved ones as two years have passed since your service.
    I was so lucky to be in your wake. So immensely guided by you, to this day. You do so much for me, amidst so many mistakes, still there is love. Your love is endless. You are incredible. You made tremendous sacrifices and im sorry I didnt realize their gravity sooner. If I could turn back time I would accept you for who you are, and learn to enjoy life. Thank you for giving me the best years of mine. I hope I can learn to support my children as you have supported me.
