Houvouras (U.S. Navy) in the midst of World War II. Following the end of the war the couple moved to Huntington and raised seven children. They were married 57 years. Pat was a devout Catholic and dedicated much of her time to charities in our area including grade schools, the Tri-State Literacy Council, the Huntington Museum of Art, St. Mary’s Hospital, St. Joseph Catholic Church, and The Marshall University Foundation where she created two scholarship funds for disadvantaged students. She was a proud member of the Daughters of the American Revolution with family roots in our nation’s founding. She had a great affinity for the ocean and passed that love to her family.
