Condolence & Memory Journal

Chizmazia Family,

So sorry to hear that Pat passed away. She was a lovely lady and a former co-worker of Crompton Modutec in Manchester, NH. Enjoyed working with Pat back at Crompton Modutec in the late 80's and early 90's. We had a great team back then. I just found out that she passed away from another co-worker that work with Pat and myself. She will be missed by all!

David Jackson,
Former Crompton Modutec Co-Worker

I am so sorry that Patt has passed away. I used to like chatting with her. And, yes, her plants were so pretty. She really had a knack for growing things. She was such a trooper when she had the cancer diagnosis. She never complained. She had the attitude that she would get thru it. I will miss her.
