Pat was my sweet friend and kind neighbor for many years. My deep sympathy to her family. I will miss her.
We were neighbors for many years on Chiswick Rd. My memories are good and many. She. was always available to help when needed. I know she will be missed by many.
Pat was my nursing supervisor and dear friend. She was a kind and compassionate person. We shared a lot of stories about us both having family in Tennessee. Her laughter was contagious. She will be missed by many. As she was loved by all who knew her.
My dear cousin. We were kids together and I will miss her.
Pat was my first cousin who spent many Sunday’s diners with me when we were children at our Grand Parents. Pat and her husband Pete took us by the the old home place a couple of years ago. Pat was also in our wedding, the 63rd anniversary which we are celebrating tomorrow. We didn’t have as much contact as I would like in later years as we were in different states.
Pat was my first cousin along with her brother Pete. I spent one whole summer with them in Clinton. She was a beautiful person both inside and out. I remember going over to her and Petes apartment on Coker Ave. When they were first married. Nothing but good memories, she was a precious person.
As a longtime childhood friend of Pat’s son Kevin, I enjoyed many a day, night, and meal at her and Pete’s home on Stonehenge with the rest of this fun family—Kathy (Rick), David, Granny, George, and Belle. So many good memories! My condolences go to the whole family as I remember Mrs. Miller. She was such a caring, humorous, and good natured lady who enjoyed her Braves, RC Cola, and HeeHaw, while forever keeping her growing family (and their friends) healthy, happy, and well fed (w/ Pete’s help of course!).
With much sympathy,
As Pete’s first cousin, I knew this marvelous person as Patsy. Since 2002, our extended family has tried to gather at the family homestead in Central Pennsylvania every summer, and having her visit was always a treat! She was always worth more than a few laughs, like the afternoon she and Nancy set out to find us some firewood for our campfire. They ended up stopping at a random man’s house and helped him to carry wood from his basement! Can’t imagine what that PA redneck thought of those septuagenarian Southern Belles!! She was full of love, grace, and advice….. we will miss her terribly. Our love to all of you!
