Devoted Pat Grandma to David (Alison), JD (Melissa), and Jimmy (Kiersten). Cherished GG Pat to Dolly, Oscar and Romi. Pat embraced her grandchildren and great-grandchildren with open arms. Their lives are forever touched by the love and wisdom she passed on to them.
Pat was born in Allentown, PA to Ina and Joseph Freeman on February 5, 1932. Throughout her life Pat showed an independent, strong and determined spirit. She was a shining example to her family and to her friends teaching the importance of family and philanthropy. Pat was the ultimate gift giver. Pat radiated elegance and touched the hearts of those who knew her. She was eloquent with the written word and she loved reading, often a book a day. Pat attended Moravian Academy in Bethlehem, PA for high school, followed by Penn State, Beaver College and Temple University. Always open to learning, she went back to college in the 70's graduating from St. Francis College with a degree in Social work. She then worked as a social worker at Memorial Hospital in Johnstown, PA and for Family House in Pittsburgh. Pat also worked at Papermart. In another career change, she owned Le Shoe, a woman's retail shoe store. Pat was a member of the National Association of Social workers, a life member of LHAS and Hadassah. She was a past treasurer for Planned Parenthood Cambria-Somerset County. She volunteered for the Blind and Vision Rehab as well as for Fisher House-VA hospital. Pat enriched all of our lives; she left an indelible mark on all who had the privilege of knowing her. We will miss you dearly.
Our family extends a special thank you to Barb, Maxine and the other caregivers who helped to give her loving care.
