Patty’s journey as a church organist began when she was 12 years of age and her home church needed someone to assist with their Sunday morning worship services. After six organ lessons, she played for her first worship service and before she was 13, had played for several funerals and weddings. Her love of playing the organ and piano continued to be fostered while attending Nebraska Wesleyan University. Her love for teaching music spanned 34 years as a vocal music specialist with Lincoln Public Schools and the University of Nebraska/Lincoln. Having grown up as a “flower child” in a flower shop during the 60’s and 70’s, she loves to foster her creative side by arranging “bouquets of love” for friends and family. God’s gifts and blessings to her have been abundant and her heart is always the fullest when she is with her family which includes a precious grandson. Patty’s prayer is that she may always bring glory and honor to the Trinity through her music and her life.
