Pat was my fourth grade teacher in Blue Creek. I have many fond memories of her. I lost my mom in March, and I never realized they were born in the same year. May she Rest In Peace knowing she had a wonderful, productive life.

Mrs. Dumas was my 5th grade teacher (1975) at Blue Creek. She was always so nice and I could not wait to be in her class. When we got our report cards at the end of 4th grade I was assigned to the other 5th grade class with a different teacher. I was so upset that my mom called the school and asked for me to be moved to the other class. She was a wonderful lady and teacher. I was saddened to read of her passing.

Ms. Dumas taught me at Blue Creek in 1973 and she was a special teacher with a very big heart. Her legacy will live on in all the people who's lives she touched.

A very loving and kind teacher at Blue Creek. I met Pat while walking years after and thanked her from the bottom heart for being a teacher. May you rest in peace

Pat was a loyal friend of my mother Margaret Carroll. They taught together in North Colonie and shared common interests in art, current affairs and a deep Catholic faith. Pat was a big supporter of mine. She and her brother Frank Morgan took a special interest in my academic potential and Pat was elated in my decision to join the Peace Corps. Like Pat, Frank and my mom, I myself have gone on to become a teacher (professor) at Johns Hopkins University and member of the Board of Visitors at my alma mater, the University of Wisconsin. I am so grateful for the guidance that Pat and her brother gave to me when it was most needed and offer my sincere condolences to her many friends and family. Sincerely, Tony Carroll
