Patricia Billick passed peacefully in her sleep Jan. 26, 2024.
Faith Patricia Ann Dewart Almond was born on Feb. 27, 1936. That's a

In 1953, she rode in on a horse and met the love of her life, David
Billick. Pat and Dave married in 1954 and moved around a bit while Dave

Matthew Promisco (Julie) and great-grandchildren Caden Lawson, Cooper
Lawson, Emelia Urbani, and Isabella Urbani.

Our Energizer bunny's batteries wore out, but her memory never will. In
lieu of flowers, please bring Dave a rock and a good story. Pat would be
happy to know her love is taken care of, and that her rock garden still

A celebration of life will be announced at a later date.
