She would meet her future husband Eugene McLaud on the Jersey Shore where they were both employed by The Stockton Hotel in Sea Girt, she as a waitress and he a bellboy. She attended Briarcliff Junior College and upon graduating worked for the advertising agency of Young and Rubicam on Madison Avenue. She and Eileen commuted daily by train to NYC. She married Eugene (“Gene” or “Abby”) on June 30, 1951 and spent most of their married life in Trumbull, CT, where they raised their 4 children. Patsy had a great sense of humor and loved to laugh. She loved to swim, ski, cook, play bridge, knit and, mostly, spend time with her family. She was well travelled from Europe to Egypt and across the US, with Abby and occasionally her sister Eileen. She enjoyed Broadway shows, The Irish Tenors, Luciano Pavarotti and many other musical entertainers. She especially loved the Thanksgiving Holiday, and, of course, penguins.
