Jackie Barndollar - Apr 27, 2015

I worked with Patti for 10 years or so, while I worked at RRDonnelley-Willard. she was always an earnest person, a hard worker, a joy as an employee. For the last 8 years, I have continued to feel connected. On every Benefits Web Call, Patti was always the first or second person with a question, clarification or comment to help the rest of the team.
My thoughts and prayers are extended to her children and her husband and her grand children, who were always first and foremost in her heart. She will be missed by many.

Diane (Snook) Swartzmiller - Apr 27, 2015

Linda Weisenauer - Apr 26, 2015

So sorry for the loss of your loved one. As a RRD employee, we are also shocked. She was very helpful to us. If you went in with an attitude, you got hers back at you but if you were decent, so was she. One always hears the good things about people after they’re gone. I hope she knew that she was appreciated. My thoughts and prayers go out to your family at this very difficult time.

Cindy Keener - Apr 26, 2015

Patti was such a warm and friendly gal. She was a great influence on “our” grandchildren, Jaylyn Wolford and her siblings Kenyon and Maryonna. She treated them all as her own, which is indicative of the type of woman she was!! She will be missed at ballgames and family gatherings as she was a bright and warm presence. Our family extends deepest sympathy to Patti’s family.

Jari Amburgey - Apr 26, 2015

Patti and I met/became best friends/roommates through nursing school, worked together at MedCentral for awhile. We were in each other’s weddings… many great times together.
I am so shocked and sad to hear of her passing. My heart goes out to Ken, her children, grandchildren, and entire family.

Denise Naugle - Apr 25, 2015

It’s hard to believe we’ve been friends and family for 38 years and now you’re gone. It’s been said, we live on through our children, so we’re never gone completely. You will be missed.

Roger and Janet Hines - Apr 25, 2015

We are so very sorry to hear of Patty’s passing. I worked with Patty for a few years in nursing at R.R. Donnelley and my husband knew Patty well after working there for many years. Peace and comfort for her family and eternal rest for her.
