  1. Pat was one of my neighbors and, although I did not know her well, whenever we met in the hall coming or going she was always friendly, kind and gentle. I am sending her family my deepest heart-felt sympathy for their loss. May Pat rest in peace and in the light of God’s love. May Pat’s family hold her in their hearts with fond memories forever. Sincerely, Barbara Neilson

  3. I worked with Pat on Tower 7 at INOVA Fairfax. I started in 1988 a new graduate from Marymount college of Va. Pat took me under her wing, introduced me to staff and was always someone I could go to for advice. We shared values, heritage, faith and friendship. We even had a common bond in Saint Mary’s of Sorrows Catholic Church. We both have family connections there. I also grew up close to Pats family home.She was someone I looked up to, and strived to meet her standards of excellence. I am sorry That I am just finding out about her passing. Please know Pat will always be in my prayers. Wendy Chase Covas
