Pat loved to play cards with her card club friends on Thursday's at Barb's place or going to the Meadows Casino. She looked forward to her yearly vacation at Wildwood, NJ with her family, but most of all loved to have a house full of family and friends even when she didn't feel well; this brought her much happiness.

Pat wanted to thank all of her family and many dear friends who kept her spirits up during her courageous fight with cancer. She never gave up; she fought to the end. A special thank you to the 7th floor nurses, doctors, and staff at Mon Valley Hospital and to Amedisys Hospice, who gave her much encouragement and comfort. She was loved and cherished by all who knew her and will be missed by all. In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her loving and caring husband of 40 years, Joseph "Diz" Dzimiera, on Jan. 19, 2005. At Pat's request, there will be no visitation or funeral, but asks that all her family, friends and acquaintances call or go and visit a sick friend. The joy you will bring to that person is the joy she felt the last 6 months of her life.
