How very sad, I just saw her post in the basement the other day and I thought to myself that she must be doing better because she was posting, This is quite a shock, so I am sure it is quite a shock to her family too. My condolences to her family. I didn't know her well, but what little I did know her, I found her to be witty and funloving, and very down to earth and kind. She will be missed!!!
" Arlene Life is a journey... not a destination. Enjoy the trip!
I am saddened beyond words at this news. The second friend lost in barely more than a week's time. I always looked forward to Whipat's posts. She was a real sweet person, and was another very kind soul who called me to lift my spirits when I was in the hospital two years ago.
I'm so sorry for your loss, Stephanie. Pat will be missed very much. Rest In Peace, Pat.

pat was such a down to earth, "no nonsense" sort of woman, taking things as they were, and not letting things that really didn't matter in the big scheme of life, get to her. the news from Stephanie this morning left me stunned. the knowledge that she passed painlessly was mercy shown,, and for that i am truly grateful,, my heartfelt prayers and sympathies are with you and your family, stephanie.
rest in peace, pat, i will always remember you and your kindness to me,

Here is Pat's obit.
Patricia "Pat" Brown Wilson passed away far too soon for us all at her Cambria home Tuesday, April 5, 2005.
A memorial bar-be-cue will be at 1 p.m. Saturday, April 9, at American Legion Post 432 of Cambria.
Pat was born June 18, 1940, in Olney, Ill., but found her home in Cambria with her first husband, Gary Brown, and young family. Her uncommon honesty and unmatched wit made her the diamond in the rough at Camozzi's of Cambria, where she tended bar far more years than she had planned. She was a matriarch and "mom" to locals and visitors alike, serving drinks and priceless advice. She married her longtime love, Whip, in 1999 and lived happily with him and her beloved cat, Toke. The love Pattie showed everyone was reciprocated and cherished by all.
Pat is survived by her husband, Whip Wilson; son, Gary "Butch" Brown, and his wife, Laurie; daughters, Angela Brown and Stephanie Thomas, and her husband, Kelly; grandchildren, Amber, Jenica, Kellianne, Ryan, Brandon, Alexa, Emily, Chelsea and Delaney; and eight great-grandchildren.
