Pat came into amateur radio late in life. She taught in the school system for nearly 40 years and was Bill's right hand woman for 58 years. You could always count on Pat to speak her mind. She definitely was not shy! You could bet that Pat would show up on 2 meters at all hours of the day and she earned the prestigous Golden Screwdriver award one year for stretching the mike cord a bit tighht while stirring a pot and dropping the radio on the floor..... QSO ended!
