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.
