In loving memory of Patricia Naimeattended Loretto Academy in Kansas City and graduated with a Bachelor of Science from St. Mary’s College in Leavenworth. She then received a Master’s Degree in Social Work from St. Louis University. Patsy’s desire to help those less fortunate led her to work at General Hospital in Kansas City using her 
skills as a social worker. While at General, she met Dr. Mansour
Naime, a

handsome young pediatrician, who pursued her relentlessly until she finally gave in and agreed to date him. They married on August 17, 1957 and celebrated their 59th wedding anniversary in August 2016. 

Patsy was a kind and giving person and gave her most precious gift, time, to Cure` of Ars Church and the Ladies of Charity. She enjoyed traveling, golf, playing bridge, and reading.
