What started as a hobby quickly became a passion for all things related to vintage clothing. She loved it all, from buttons to jewelry, hats, purses, gloves, and lots of memorabilia. She had fun selling at vintage shows, but you could never tell anything was ever sold. Patty traveled the world with Calvin. She had been to every place she desired! When traveling the U.S, they were in their RV. (She loved motor homes and was always on the lookout for the next one). They brought Erica and then the grandkids with them on many of their trips. Patty loved being a grandma and always supported them at every event, show, and performance for all four of them. She was so proud of them! She had a unique relationship with each of them and was amazing at making each of them feel special, loved, and supported! Patty’s smile was infectious, and everyone was drawn to her. She was known for her laughter and carefree spirit. Patty touched so many lives and had a way of making others feel confident in themselves. She will be missed beyond measure!
