Once settling in Trussville, AL, Pat was named Miss Trussville in her junior year of high school. The following year, the family relocated to Chattanooga where she attended Chattanooga City High School and was named Miss City High in her senior year. She received her Registered Nursing degree in 1955 from Birmingham Baptist Hospital School of Nursing (Samford University, Birmingham, AL). Pat practiced nursing while living in Tucson, AZ, in addition to Memphis, TN, and Knoxville, TN.
