Pat loved farm life, fishing and crabbing. She began raising her family with Frank (Junior) in Glasva, where she fished in the clear waters at Allen's Fresh, crabbed with chicken necks and a softshell crab dredger she made herself. In 1960, Pat and Junior built their home on the hill above "The Farm". Together, they worked the farm, danced at the American Legion or played cards with the family until the wee hours of the morning almost every Saturday night. She walked the tobacco fields behind the plow to pick up arrow heads turned up by the blades. And.... She Cooked. She cooked for anyone who walked in her door. Her specialties included soft shell crabs, butternut pound cakes and homemade ice cream.
