Pat graduated from Flint Central High School and attended Flint Community College. She was employed in her earlier years as secretary to the City of Flint Treasurer and later as secretary to the Genesee Township Treasurer before moving to Atlanta. Pat and Ben moved to Atlanta in 1968 where Ben worked as the press operator for the Montmorency Tribune and Pat was Atlanta’s librarian.
