She considers daughters Penny and Maggie her finest accomplishments in life and granddaughters Scout and Izzy to be most delightful creatures. Patty has two fur children, cats Baby Kitty and Sally. A product of the Franklin County Schools and Kentucky State University, her first career was as a local florist, with flower-arranging still being a favorite endeavor.
