 the late Harry and Mary Nation. Patty was beloved in the city of Auburn, from her neighbors on Burt Avenue to her many friends from Auburn High and Jacobs Press, INC. where she worked for 40 years. Patty was a loyal friend, a helpful co-worker and a committed neighbor. Last month, Patty celebrated her 50th reunion with Auburn High’s Class of 1972.

Patty lived her life with a positive attitude, strong spirit and steady faith; she was an inspiration to everyone she met.
