Patricia was born in New Orleans, LA and was a longtime resident of St. Bernard Parish. Among Patricia’s favorite pastimes was her occasional visits to the casino, where she found excitement and joy. The thrill of the games and the companionship of friends made each outing an adventure. One of her favorite things was gathering together with family and friends to enjoy birthday celebrations, cook-outs and seafood boils.
