High School. 
She accepted Christ as her personal Savior in mid - 70's and joined the Morris Memorial 
Church of God in Christ under the Leadership of Pastor Garnett Herron for over a decade. She 
served as Youth-Ushers & Girl Scouts Leader, Sunday School Teacher, and mentor to many young people. For many years. she sang with the Wisconsin Community Choir; traveled with the West Side Church of God In Christ choir and served on the Christian Business Alliance, Debutante Ball Boards.

and joined the Heavenly Gospel Church of God In Christ, Fort Worth, TX under the leadership 
of Pastor Floyd Taylor. For almost 20 years she served as Prayer Warrior, Pastor's Aide President's Assistant (Ma), Sunday School Teacher, and Sound Technician among having many other positions. 

In 2003 she returned to the Midwest and resided in Illinois. Pat was employed at INA, CIGNA,

member commuting from Belvidere, IL until her health no longer allowed her to travel. 
Traveling was one of Pat's passions, one of her last trips was a cruise to Alaska. Her job 
transferred her from Milwaukee, to Florida, to Texas, and finally she resided in Belvidere, IL for 
the past 10 years. Pat made many friends throughout her moves and could find her directions 
anywhere in those cities. Being an avid crafter she made and taught many projects to adults and
children alike. Her generosity towards others was insurmountable, that caring spirit was one of 
Pat's finest qualities. Her wish was to live to go the "Owens Family Reunion" in August and she 
made it! Pat was usually 1st to do anything, drive, move, skate backwards, and was a great cook.
