She was the best babysitter I ever had in my whole life. And the first one I can ever recall growing up in Minot, ND. She cared for my brother and I deeply and even showed up at my his wedding decades later. I have never forgotten her and want her family to know how special she was to me and my family.

Haven’t known Patti very long, but she was a kind, helpful, great neighbor who loved to camp, feed the birds and play with her grandkids. She always had a kind word and a big smile. She will be missed. Fare thee well, Patti.
