Patricia Ann Smuck 1936-May 15, 2019
I It is with sadness that we heard of Pat's passing. All who knew her would call her "friend" and "advocate". Pat was a member of the ACPD Board for over 30 years as a lay associate. She not only participated in Board meetings sharing her wit and wisdom, but was always involved in whatever nitty-gritty work needed to be done for the Mardi Gras to other events we sponsored. Pat was always available. We honored her about five years ago with a special award to recognize her dedication and commitment to supporting priests and our ministry.
While Pat will be missed at meetings, We feel sure that she will be our "advocate" from heaven. If anyone deserves a one way pass directly to heaven, it is Pat. She didn't need a priest's collar for authority, she knew it came with Baptism and Confirmation, and she lived her faith each day.
