She also leaves behind a legacy of 9 grandchildren, 12 great grandchildren and 2 great great grandchildren who she adored very dearly. Patricia was a great mother to her children and wife to her late husband Dennis D. Tarran.

Patricia was known for her wonderful sense of humor and having a "Cheshire Cat" grin on her face and a little twinkle in her eye. She enjoyed seeing her family in the summer coming from states near and far. All her children and grandchildren were in attendance to see "MeMaw" the Matriarch. All of Patricia's friends at St. Teresa loved her for the short time that she lived there. Everyone loved Pat who became known as the "Southern Lady". She enjoyed Bingo and the music there.

The love for her family never faltered, being with her family gave her extreme joy especially at Christmas and Thanksgiving gatherings. She always loved spending the holiday season Christmas shopping with her "girls" and always the scheduled lunch date.

Patricia was a care giver on numerous occasions including her family and friends. Her love of babies shined when she would take care of her beloved neighbors children and her grandchildren. Patricia would always have a great feeling of joy taking care of others.

Patricia always loved taking time and viewing the wildlife outside, she always had enjoyed gardening and cooking. She was also a dedicated sports fan especially for her home team the Redskins. Patricia always enjoyed making crafts and crabbing with her friend Shirley. Her favorite game shows were Jeopardy, Family Feud, and The Price is Right.

Patricia always received great pleasure to give to the St. Joseph Indian school in South Dakota. The children had a special place in her heart. She stated her father was 1/2 American Indian so she always felt connected in a special way.
