Patty was an amazing coworker and friend. I worked with Patty across multiple classrooms at NEC. Her heart was full of kindness. Our students loved her. She enjoyed taking them on community internships. Patty had a passion for life...she loved good food, travel, snow days, her garden, cooking, and decorating. She was very proud of her grandson Vinny and so thankful to have them with her. She also loved her many friends and was thankful for their support. She will be very missed!
What I can say about patty is she lived life! I have many fond memories of family holidays, and taking vacations with her. Patty and I worked together for many years which she had such a commitment to her students and the school! She will be greatly missed! Rest In Peace, Patty, Kathy Hardwick Wogan
