    We would like to express our heart felt sympathies to the Holms family. Barb and I often helped Pat in the kitchen at the WWC. She was loved by all, and we will truly miss her. But today, Heaven has gained one more saint and she is rejoicing in His Presence free, for the first time in many years,from all pain. Blessings to the Holms Family.

    Dear Greg, Angela, Tim, and Families,

    We were so very sorry to hear about your Mom. She was such a lovely and caring person. I got to know her well, when she worked, for many years, at Nationview, organizing and making the food, for our Hot Lunch Program. She was an amazing woman, in the kitchen! Pat was so well organized and efficient.

    I always looked forward to seeing Pat, at the Wesleyan Church Christmas Sale. We would take this opportunity to have a good visit. She will be greatly missed.

    Please know that we are thinking of you during this sad time.

    Lorraine and Brian

    Pat looked after and cared for my children as if they were her own..Pat and Lyal and their children made you feel like a part of their family. Pat shared her baking and then her recipes and sometimes extra tomatoes or cucumbers from the garden. Sometimes when you were leaving their house she would ask if you needed any eggs because she had lots. We cherish such heart felt memories of our times with such a wonderful family. Our deep felt sympathy to Greg, Angie, and Tim. Heaven has received such a loving gentle angel. She will be sadly missed.

    My sincere condolences to all family members and friends on Patricia’s death. It’s been 30 years since the last time we met unless I saw her when I was a guest speaker at Winchester Wesleyan in the late 1990’s. I’m getting older and its harder to remember. Blessings to everyone and comfort in these days of grief. May the Lord be your help and strength.
