Condolence & Memory Journal

Although I didn't know her that well, what I remember most about Pat was her wonderful smile. And how funny she was during the cousins' Mother's Day brunch get togethers at my mom's house. My thoughts and prayers going out to her family and friends during this time of mourning. God Bless You Pat.

How wonderful to have a friendship for over 70 years. "Patsy" was our friend and neighbor (Packard Street and Our Lady Queen of Heaven School). She was so kind, smart, and very funny. Pat leaves an indelible mark - she will never be forgotten.

Dearest Chupailo Family, deepest sympathy for your loss. Pat was a very close friend of my mother's Gwen Perrin. She loved her so much and so did we. I remember Pats laughter and the joy she brought everyone when we were with her. God Bless and comfort you all during this very difficult time. Cindy Perrin Tetuan

Dear Sweet Auntie Pat, I wish I had the chance to see you again but it was not to be. You were always a good friend to my mother, Gwen Riopelle Perrin, and a sweet auntie to us children. And Yes, I will always remember you telling me there was a boogieman under my bed and I should not look under it. LOL May the Good Lord welcome you Home with loving arms open wide and a smiling face. Please give Brian, Stan, and my dad a hug for me. I will miss you so very much and pray we will see one day. Deborah L. Perrin

It is a well known fact in my family, that Pat has been a wonderful, stay in touch friend, for many years. We were traveling on Military assignments, but I could count on notes and cards. She will be missed. I loved her like a sister and we met in 1954. My husband grew up down the street and knew her parents and Pat well. He even tried to crash her 16th birthday party. I didn't know him them. I remember her wedding and her mom and dad and know that they are all together again. God bless the family.
