Patty and Jim and their family enjoyed vacationing at different resorts until they purchased their own place in Crivitz. She loved snowmobiling, fishing, golfing, bowling and playing the slots, especially when she won at numerous casinos. Patty was a Cub Scout Den Mother for many years which she enjoyed very much. Other things Patty enjoyed were taking care of her flowers, feeding and watching the birds, squirrels and rabbits and going to lunch with friends and family.
