Condolences to the Family

I worked with Pat for many years as one of her sales people.  She was not only my mentor but my friend.  She taught me many things about working in a male dominated profession and I am forever greatful for that knowledge.  My prayers go out to the family

For over 30 years Pat was such a big part of the Clark Filter Family. She always went out of her way to make others feel welcome.  My thoughts and prays go out to her family.

Pat was a lovely lady who I came to know through my brother John and my sister-in-law, Penne. I enjoyed Pat’s sense of humor and endearing personality. She had a sparkle about her and I felt a closeness to her in a short time. She will be missed by all who were lucky enough to know her.

We met Pat when our brother, John Marino, married Penne. The family gatherings were when we visited PA were when we got to know Pat. We spent a really nice week together in CA when nephew Alex got married. She was such a lovely happy lady. Our condolences to her wonderful family.  With love, Evie and Art.

While Pat did not hire me (that dubious distinction goes to our first boss, Don Galinat), we had a long history together as mainstays of the Clark Filter sales dept, spanning 32 years. When I started in July, 1980, Pat served as Mr. Galinat’s administrative assistant (or something akin to that). By the time Pat retired in July, 2012, she had risen to the position of VP Sales and had been responsible for both the Clark sales and customer service depts for many years. Despite being engaged in the very conservative, male-dominated railroad industry, Pat was never intimidated by the fact she was often the only female in the room. Instead, she seemed to revel in the challenge and thrived in that unique environment. Pat was very smart, extremely hard-working and a talented, natural leader.
For all of her business savvy and accomplishments, Pat, ultimately, was a caring and others-oriented person,  focusing much of her time and energy on her workplace associates, friends and family. She spoke often and with great passion about her sons, sister and other close family. It was always obvious what was most important to Pat.   
We will miss Pat greatly. Her influence will continue at Clark Filter for many years while the imprint of her friendship, kindness and loyalty will live on with all of us that knew her, for the rest of our days.
May God give strength and peace to all the family during this difficult time.

I feel we were all blessed just by knowing and working with Pat while she was at LGH.  Her wisdom, compassion, laughter and experience enriched our daily lives.  I will always treasure our memories.  Blessings and prayers to all her wonderfully loving family.

While I met Pat through work, it was her friendship after I left the company that I will always cherish.  We shared many times together whether it was traveling for business, taking exercise classes, enjoying lunch and a few Miller Lites on an outdoor deck, or talking about her sons and how proud she was of them.    Pat, you have earned your angel wings and now Heaven is enjoying your company.  You will always be in my heart and I will miss you deeply but someday we meet again…  To Jim, Tom, Chris and Penne, you are in my thoughts and prayers.  May God’s loving arms be your comfort as you mourn.

I was deeply saddened to hear the news of Pat’s passing. I worked with Pat for over 30 years. We spent countless hours together sitting in meetings, traveling to see customers, and attending trade shows. She was my manager, mentor, and friend and will be sorely missed. I offer my prayers and condolences to the family.

I regret that Ed and I will not be able to attend the visitation/service due to work conflicts but you all will be in our hearts and prayers.
Pat and I had many wonderful conversations over the last few years that I feel like I know you all so well. I know it will be along time before I can go past her house and not think of her. I will definitely miss my friend and I am so blessed to have gotten to know her.
 May God give you peace,

My husband & I met Pat while attending the Saturday afternoon mass at St. Leo’s .  We would always sit in the same area of the church & one day we just started talking.  We had some very interesting conversations!  We then came to find out that her mother was living in the Landisville Apartments, which is just down the street from our house, so we would see her there as well when she  visited her mother .  Pat was one of those people who came into your life for just a brief period of time but was never forgotten.  We hadn’t seen her recently but thought of her often.  May she Rest In Peace – she will be missed.
