She was the dearest mother of Christopher (Chardonnee) and Sarah, and grandmother, “Gigi,” to Marleigh and Kingston.       

Pat was born in Blue Island, Illinois to Henry and Winnie Goldman. She has four younger siblings, Peg (Bill) Burke, Penny (Mike) Schmitz, Ken Goldman, and Alice Bushman. She has many nieces and nephews  who she loved deeply.         

Pat and her siblings grew up on a farm and later moved to the town of Earlville, Illinois.
