Patty was born on March 3, 1953, a daughter of the late Edwin and Jo-Ann (Lambert) Martin. She worked as a Claims Specialist with Blue Cross Blue Shields for over 25 years.

They are survived by their daughter, Kristina Burkhart; two grandchildren, Brandon and Bethany Burkhart; siblings, Joseph (Sharon) Rich Jr., Robert (Kathy) Rich, Holly (Tad) Tsetsakis, Daniel Martin and Pamela Lewis and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.
