Ms. Pat loved her longtime community of Armistead Gardens in Baltimore city. She spent many hours as a volunteer for the community clothes closet. She could be counted on to prepare food for any event and was known for her cakes. She participated in the community watch also.
Mom also loved her dogs. It didn’t matter who’s dogs they were. After moving in with her daughters, she made donations of food and supplies to shelters in her daughters’ communities. She loved watching TV shows showing the antics of pets. Mom was enthralled by the stories of the “real life” of veterinarians and their struggles to help animals.
