Pat was one of the best climbers, cyclists, runners and overall adventurers you can think of. Her positive attitude was infectious and her experience vast, the combination of which resulted in such inspiration to all who were privileged enough to know her. Words cannot express our loss.
I feel blessed to have done several trips with Pat, most recently to Mt. Williamson. Pat was in the lead most of the time and the first to reach the summit. I cherish all our summits and all the moments we spent together. It is devastating to know I can never again look up at Pat and find the motivation to keep climbing, higher and higher, but our memories together will never be forgotten. Thank you for teaching me that life IS worth living on the highest summits!
REST IN PEACE, PAT. YOU WILL BE MISSED DEARLY.Pat with the Williamson summit register
