As an active "rather tomboy" young child she often took refuge in neighbor's floral landscaped yards. This love of gardens and flowers extended into her adult life when in bloom her home was often filled with fresh-cut roses and other flowers.
On September 30, 1961, Patricia married her beloved classmate, Dennis Seaman following their Claysville High School graduation in 1960. She earned an associate's degree from Penn Commercial and did office work for local department stores. Together Pat and Denny began their family with stops in California, Delaware, and Edinburgh, Scotland while he served his duty for the United States Air Force.
The firstborn, Robin now resides in Maryland with her husband Andrew Winternitz, Dennis "Michael" although born in Scotland also lives in Maryland with his wife, Leticia, and his children, and the final of their three children, Patrick has settled with his wife Penny and their children in Ohio. Upon retirement from the business world, Patricia was a devoted mom and homemaker before employment at D & W Bus Company
Patricia despite her myriad of lifelong serious illnesses from debilitating arthritis to cardiac issues; she was a survivor and loved life. She enjoyed traveling to places with all the amenities near a beach, amusement parks with grandkids, and most often the rustic tranquil campsite in the mountains of West Virginia. She loved the outdoors and would sit for hours watching the birds in her backyard. Although she did not begin her marriage as a kitchen novice; she quickly learned how to cook, bake, and can/process just about anything. She was a picky eater; but, would prepare her dislikes for others. Patricia was vocal, opinionated; yet, kind, loving, and very giving. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her including her 8 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren.
