Patricia Verdi (Schaefer)

Patricia B. (Verdi) Schaefer, loving sister, daughter and mother, age 59, of Billings, joined our Heavenly Father, on Wednesday afternoon, April 2, 2008.

Pat was a wonderful woman, great friend, and the best mom anyone could ever ask for. Pat was born in the Bronx, N.Y., and settled in Billings in 1977, after meeting the love of her life, Paul.

Pat had many hobbies, including quilting, yard work and watching and shopping on QVC. She had a very green thumb and loved plants. She could save a plant's life even if it seemed hopeless, and make it grow like you never imagined possible. She also loved her 1974 Camaro.

Pat brought a special joy to and touched those who came into her life. She'd always greet you with a smile, her big brown eyes sparkling, and her heart opened wide. She had a great personality and great sense of humor. She also had a great outlook on life and was never afraid to hold back. She loved her friends and family dearly, and kept them in her heart always.

Pat is survived by her daughter Erika; mother Angela; twin sisters, Sister Angela Marie and Sister Joan Marie; brother Anthony and sister-in-law, Kathy. She was preceded in death by her loving husband Paul; father Anthony; and many friends and family.
