Hoye Building Materials and then later with Valley Wholesale Building Products where she retired as “Cabinet Queen”. She was a charter and longstanding member of the “Hags, Nags and Bags Club” – childhood friends who met once a month to share views about family, life, change, etc. During her golden years, Pat enjoyed watching New England sports teams, working in her yard, day trips to the casinos, dinners with friends Chuck and Claire Camerlin and visits with her “favorite” grandson. She was a longtime communicant of St. John the Evangelist Church in Agawam.
