When Good Sam first started the White Elephant Sale, whoever was available at "Grand Central Station" helped price and sell what had been donated. Sometimes it was a bit chaotic. It certainly was not organized. Pat was there at Grand Central, just hanging out and helping where she could. Slowly but surely, she began to concentrate on the White Elephant Sale, and she did it so well. It became her baby. In recent years we have made from $1,000 to $2,000 on the sales between her expertise and the generous donations of miniaturists.
Pat had a miniature store at one time and a miniature club in Eureka. She was a fount of knowledge about miniatures. In recent times Pat has written a column for the NAME Gazette.
At Pat's request there will be no services.
I will miss her ready smile and calm demeanor. Pat was a special person.
