She married the love of her life, Daniel Koupal, on September 11, 1954. They had many adventures together, including raising their family and traveling the world. The things in life most important to Pat were her husband, her family and her faith. She loved playing bridge, reading, working at the Reader’s Den, her home on the lake, the family cabin in the Black Hills, being Irish and a Democrat, and providing the best Christmases, Easters and Fourth of July’s ever for her family.
