    Pat and I had many classes in high school, college and graduate studies as well as extra curriculars. We kept in touch professionally. Pat not only was one of the most intelligent, sharp, quick witted individuals I know, but also the funniest and kindest. Her twinkle, her smile, her spirit, her joy and faith were boundless. To her husband and children, fill the deep void and aches with all the joy she emanated. She is preparing an eternal reward with her many gifts and love and prayers to you all as you celebrate her tenacious zest for life.

    Pat was a terrific colleague at Popham Haik. We worked on several matters together, and she was always the smart one. I am grateful for knowing her.

    Pat and I worked together as young lawyers at Popham Haik. She was a wonderful colleague and a joy to work with.

    I remember Pat as a diligent worker on one of the cases for which I was a lead lawyer. She was Pat O’Leary then. I never worked much with her after she hits tried archangel her name. When I was diagnosed with cancer a year ago she left a nice note of encouragement as a cancer survivor. She put me to a memory test as she signed her name Pat Kiscoan. When I finally figured out that she was Pat O’Leary when she and I worked together I sent her a reply. Her talk during the night of hope was remarkable. May she rest well in the arms of our Lord.

    I can hear her laugh and see her smile now. Peace to her and condolences to Steve, kids and extended family. A beautiful soul has left this world.

    Patty always had a smile on her face in highschool. I didn’t see her for literally decades. Then a few years ago, I was invited to her home for a get together of a group of women from our class at Marian. Patty was still smiling and I felt like I was 16 again. My sincerest sympathy to all of her family and multitude of friends. Hutch

    Pat was the most gracious of all of us on the railroad industry bargaining committee. As a newcomer to the committee, she immediately made me feel welcome and was a sharp colleague from whom I learned a lot about labor relations. I am keeping all of her family and friends in my thoughts and prayers.

  • Jessica Johnson Posted January 31, 2020 8:47 pm

    Pat was wonderful to work with and as a person. She had such a strong and kind spirit. My condolences to Steve, Mary and Peter. She was loved by her UP family very much!

  • Bess Gruber Searles Posted January 31, 2020 11:46 pm

    Patty, thank you for being such a light in this world to so very many. Your encouragement and special little smile were always such gifts! We were so honored to have you as a leader and friend.

    Steve and family, I pray you will be blessed with peace and strength and the knowledge that Pat is experiencing the love of her Lord in a new and real way. Blessings forever!

    My heart goes out to the Kiscoans and O’Learys at this time of tremendous loss. Patty was so much, to so many. Peace and healing during this painful time.

  • Andrea Gansen Posted February 3, 2020 5:05 pm

    Pat was a colleague at Union Pacific and as much as I enjoyed working with her professionally, her friendship — given openly and without judgment — meant so much to me. I am so lucky to have been able to call her my friend. She was always so proud of Peter and Mary — my deepest condolences to you and your dad.

  • Terrill Maxwell Posted February 3, 2020 8:31 pm

    My condolences to the family of Pat. She had a big heart & was truly a joy to work with and under her leadership. Heaven just got another angel! Rest n peace

    I am so sad to hear of Pat’s passing. I worked on Pat’s legal support team at Union Pacific. She valued all. From long term department employees to new employees, Pat invested herself in the training and development of every team member. She was caring and joyful. Condolences to Steve, Peter, Mary and loved ones.
