She grew up during the depression, with her father employed as a public school principal in various small country schools in Lone Star, High Prairie, and Byers, CO, and Medicine Bow, WY. In 1943 her family moved to Tulsa, OK, where her father was employed as a biology teacher in the Tulsa public school system. Pat graduated from Central High School in 1950 and entered Tulsa University, where she became interested in nursing. She graduated in 1955 from St. John's School of Nursing in Tulsa as a Registered Nurse.
