As a mark of respect the Island Pond Historical Society museum closed on Friday 2nd July for Pat's graveside service in Lakeview. The photo above shows Pat at the official opening of the IPHS museum on 4 August 2018. Tributes have poured in. Pat touched so many lives. She was a nun, a pilot, a teacher, a friend, a confidante, and a constant source of support; advice, and guidance. This year's historical society annual meeting will be the first to ever take place in the society's own premises - the museum on Cross Street in Island Pond - at 1pm on 1st August. It will also be the first annual meeting since 1967 that Pat will be absent from. Inspirational, intellectual, and always incredibly interesting Pat will be missed. She passed away 25 June - the same day the historical society Summer newsletter went to press. The winter issue will carry a full feature on Pat. Always well organized, Pat left the IPHS museum a print of aviator Amelia Earhardt who rose to fame the same day Pat was born - 17 June 1928 - for being the first female to cross the Atlantic as a passenger aboard a plane piloted by Wilmer Stultz. The Island Pond Historical Society executive board and volunteers joins with members in offering our sympathies to Pat's family, friends, and former pupils. For now, enjoy these photos of Pat. Photo 1 shows Pat holding the antique clay Alpha Delta jug. Photo 2 shows her (right) holding a chicken. Her friend Muriel Maw (left) is holding a kitten! The third photo shows Pat (left) and Muriel (right) in a snow bank! The final photo shows the museum doors with mourning ribbons.
