  2. My love and prayers to the Augustine family for the passing of Pat Augustine, wife, mother, and loving friend! Wish I could have attended her ceremony, yet I was there in spirit!
    Pat had a wonderful smile and a warm hearted laugh! I see she’s passed that along to her great daughter and my sister-in-law Sue. She will be forever missed. May she rest in peace and sore with the Angels!!

    All my love,

    Debby Fritts

  3. Tim&Susan Skiles. Had the privilege of visiting with Andy and his wonderful family last night! What a beautiful time together. A true measure of a family raised by two loving parents. It was a special night with so many people sharing love with one another! So happy to be apart of this sad but special gathering! Love to the Augustine family!❤️

  4. Uncle Andy and family, Linda and I were so sorry to hear of Aunt Pat’s passing. Memories of a weekly night in your Havertown home having fun patterning . A beautiful bride at an 8 year olds first wedding. Will always continue to say “that’s where Aunt Pat and Uncle Andy got married” when passing The Walnut Park Plaza Hotel! Love, Linda and Greg

  5. Dear Andy and family,
    I am so sorry to hear of the loss of my dear cousin, Patsy.
    I will always remember her graciousness, beauty, smile and laugh.
    One of my fondest memories is of visiting Patsy with my mother, Angie, at her house when I was young.
    The three of us were sitting at her kitchen table, sharing coffee cake and tea on a rainy afternoon. I remember feeling so cozy and loving the sound of my mother and Patsy laughing together.
    May you and your family find comfort in your loving memories and unforgettable times with Patsy of your own.

  6. Andy, Steve, Danny and Susan, Everybody who knew Pat will agree that she was a kind and all-around wonderful lady. And we all have some special memory of her. Mine will be seeing her at the grocery store, where we would meet, going in opposite directions, and we’d stop, right in the middle of the aisle, just like the “Kennett Boys” do. And we’d catch up on the news of our children and grandchildren, and share the ‘joys’ of getting older. I will miss that. My sincerest condolences to you all. And you go on ahead, Pat; I’ll catch up with you later.

  11. Andy and Family,
    I remember and treasure the years I worked with Pat at KMS. We shared many a break or lunch sharing stories of our children and grandchildren and Pat was always there with a great antidote or caring advice. I will miss her. My prayers and sympathy are with you now.

  16. Dear Andy,
    You can imagine my shock on hearing about Pat’s passing. We just talked a few months ago about coming to see out new home. My time working with Pat at KMS and our continued friendship meant so much to me. Her sense of humor and her little “quips” kept my spirits up. I will miss her very much. May God bless you and your family for your loss.

  21. Mrs. A not only welcomed my sister into her family, but me as well. I will always treasure the Sunday dinners that she invited me to…. She made a mean broccoli casserole! I will always remember her stories, advice and no-nonsense sense of humor. She raised wonderful children and she loved her dear grandchildren. We will all miss her. ❤️

  23. Our thoughts and prayers go to Andy and his family on the passing of his / their beloved “Pat.” She was a strong woman who was also very gracious and friendly. We value the time we have known her, since our son became a member of her extended family…upon his marriage to her daughter, Susan, in July, 1993. She fought a strong fight and will be remembered fondly by all of us whose lives she touched.
