On November 12, 1955 she married Dan Pero. In the first seven years of marriage they welcomed four children Diana, Richard, Danielle and David. They moved to Prospect, OR in 1963 where they made so many memories, made several friends that became family and welcomed the last of five children Denise.
In 1973, they made their journey to Middleton, ID where they spent the next 49 years together raising children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Pat spent many years in the work force working for JR Simplot and then retired from Hewlett-Packard. But her greatest passion was babysitting her grandkids and great grandkids.
