Pat was such a wonderful person. Even though I did not get to spend much time with her, I know this because only a wonderful, smart, caring person could have produced such a loving and wonderful family. I will always remember getting stuck inside on vacation due to wind and rain. I luckily had my puzzle partner, Pat. We got teased, but we didn't care...we had so much fun completing that puzzle. My thoughts are with the Wood family. I love you guys.

Meg Helmlinger-Reis

I have many fond memories of your mother, her "no bake cookies", as a cook at Holy Angels, Her being there every morning when Peggy and I walked to school. She was also a very special friend to my mom, Margaret Helmlinger. I thank God for the times I have shared with Pat and her family. My thoughts and Prayers are with you. With Love, Meg Helmlinger-Reis

I loved Pat, enjoyed having her with us at the beach the year Stacie got married and I loved visiting with her when I would come to Sidney with Peggy. I feel so fortunate to have gotten to know her and so many of the Wood family (they have become like a second family to me). Pat has left behind a great legacy and will be remembered for years to come. My thoughts are with the Wood family. I love you all.



Clara and Lou Kerber

Your mother was a wonderful neighbor and friend. Our children all grew up with you. We are sure she will be missed by everyone.

Virginia Seewer

I didn't know Pat but I wish sympathy to all of the family. I knew Dave when I was working for the City and thought highly of him. May happy memories be of comfort to all of you.

Wendy Dillingham

My thoughts and prayers are withthe family at this time. Pat was such a wonderful warm person.

Joyce Reier and Family

I attended school with many of the Wood clan, and I too remember those no bake cookies! I did my service learning at Lehman in the cafeteria, where Pat (along with Esther and Katherine) taught me that some of the best things in life happen around a kitchen table. She was a great lady who raised children that epitomize the word family. May the love of friends give you comfort, and the love of God give you peace.
