  4. I’ve known Patti since our years together at Weirton Heights School. She was always as beautiful inside and she was on the outside. I will remember her smile and kindness. She was a member of the Class of 1968 and she will be missed by all of us. Gloria Pete Suchko

  5. Patti and John, sorry to hear of the loss of Patti. She was the most wonderful person and always stopped to see me at WSX . My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. She was a wonderful entertainer and is remembered by lots. sincerely Jerry Hamill

  6. Bill and I share your grief. We had such a ball with her, when she performed at the Food Festival. We had lost contact, but she will always be remembered. God Bless you and your family, our prayers and thoughts are with you. Bill & Shirley Miller

  7. My hearfelt thoughts and prayers for the entire family members and friends of Patti. I worked for Gene Moneyhan and she was Gene and Virginia’s favorite person. Later, my Aunt Jo Ann Custer became really close to Patti, while working with her in All her productions with The Steubenville Players. She was Truly A “Class Act,” and my mother worked for Dale Holtzmann and did the last oil portrait that Patti had done for her mother one Christmas. I got to see her perform in Las Vegas and it was SO Much Fun, watching Her SHINE and Light Up the Room! I Hope she’s posing for Gene and Virginia now, and causing the Skies to Be alittle BRIGHTER with Her NEW STAR In Heaven! May you find Comfort in the Love of your friends for the days ahead.

  8. I’ve know Patti since the first grade. She looks as sweet as can be in our class picture. I spent many good times with Patti at her home when we were young girls and shared laughter and good old-fashioned fun. She was a beautiful person and always had a bright smile when she saw you–never acted better than you or that she thought she was someone special–was as down-to-earth as when we were in school. I hope she and Teddi (Paolo) Licker are sharing some conversation up in Heaven. They were good friends on Earth, too. She was missed at our 40th class reunion this year and will always be remembered as a good person.

  9. Patti was always so generous to lend her talents and time to the United Cerebral Palsy of Ohio Valley telethons and fundraising events. The clients all loved her and she was so sweet with them. I spent many good hours with Patti and always found her to be one of the most down-to-earth talents I had ever met. I loved her style, her good taste and her bright smile. I only wish I had been able to have kept in touch with her in the past years. I know you will miss her greatly and will be praying for you. I never met her family, but I was the Executive Director for the Cerebral Palsy of Ohio Valley in case you are wondering our connection.

  14. Patti has always been a Star to me and the big sister I never had. I am thankful for her being a part of my life and will always remember the great times we had together in Players and the C-Notes and the friendship And support we gave each other in good times and bad.
