Pat married “Dee” W. Meyer on August 4, 1951. Pat was a lifetime member of St. Joseph’s Cathedral growing up and then raising her family under the light of the Cathedral spires. Pat spent most of her energy and life along with Dee raising their nine children while welcoming with an open door any of their neighbors. Pat loved to read, play bridge, as well as visit and spend time with family and friends. She was known for her strong faith, quick Irish smile, intelligent wit and loving ways.
