Sister Patricia was born in New Orleans, Louisiana, and reared in Biloxi, Mississippi. She entered the Sisters of Mercy on September 7, 1952, and professed her Final Vows on August 16, 1958, in St. Louis, Missouri. Her ring motto was, “Jesus, My Love, Mary, My Mother.”
Sister Patricia’s community and ministry experiences brought her to Fort Scott, Kansas, and areas throughout the state of Mississippi, especially in Jackson and Vicksburg.
Her enjoyments of life included always celebrating with family and loved ones for any occasion, and she was an avid lover of the outdoors. With her younger family members, she enjoyed fishing and always renewed her spirits with mowing the lawn and caring for her flowers and vegetable gardens.
Sister Patricia’s passion for her profession of nursing brought her forth to share her clinical and leadership skills, as well as her desire to serve those most in need. In her later years, in partnership with Sister Robyn Huser, they helped to co-found the Delta Express Mobile Clinic in the Mississippi Delta area.
Sister’s loving, compassionate heart called her to serve in multiple capacities dedicated to the corporal and spiritual works of mercy. She retired and moved to Catherine’s Residence in 2019.
