(the late John), Shelley Albiez, Christian Davis (Lori), and Timothy Davis (Carol) as well as
grandchildren: Sean and Joshua Davis, Angela Albiez, Riley, Brady, and Ruby Davis. Patty truly
lived out her motto, “Brighten the corner where you are.” Whether surviving the Great
Depression or raising her family, she was eternally loving and positive. She had natural way of
making others feel better for having just been in her presence.

Patty graduated from Withrow HS in 1945 where she:
Danced in Pony Chorus and was part of the modern dance club
Served on Senior Council
Played varsity field hockey, basketball, and softball.
Was first a mascot in the marching band at Withrow junior high school before becoming

The first girl drum major in Cincinnati.
Was presented the Withrow Honor Girl ring, which was given to the
all-around outstanding female graduate of 1945.
Was elected Sweetheart of Demolay for the city of Cincinnati.

She graduated from the University of Cincinnati Teachers College in 1949 where she:
Played varsity field hockey and basketball.
Was president of the Women’s Athletic Association.
Was drum majorette and elected band sponsor of the marching band.
Was tapped for Mortar Board for all around leadership and participation.
Was presented the UC senior class ring (The “C Ring”) for the outstanding female graduate.

She married Leland Davis on August 26, 1950. Leland and Patty moved to Evanston, Ill where
Leland was awarded a graduate scholarship at Northwestern University and Patty taught
modern dancing at Evanston High School. They went on to live in many parts of the country as
they built their family and professional life together – including Louisville, KY, Philadelphia, and
Los Angeles. Upon their return to Cincinnati, Patty was a physical education teacher at her
alma mater, Withrow Junior High School.

She was devoted to Mt. Washington Church where she served as an Elder, Trustee, church
school teacher, and Stephen Minister. She will continue to be loved beyond words by her
children and family.

Hospice of Cincinnati. .

Patty was so dear to me, and I loved her as a second mom. I worked for Patty for almost 20 years. We would laugh and act crazy all the time.If she was kidding with me I'd say "Leland Patty is being mean to me." He'd say "Patty be nice" haha!
She could always tell if something was wrong in my life. She would say I know something is wrong, and you don't have to share with me if you don't want to! I always did, and felt better for it.
Patty and Leland helped me through my mother's death.
I could write a book, but I really did love her, Leland also!!
I know she is up in Heaven with Leland with that big smile on her face, and dancing! That's what I told Shelly, that thinking of them dancing is what helped me through this.
God Bless the family!
Rest in Peace sweet Patty.
I love you,

Erik Donough

Aunt Patty most certainly left a lasting impression on anyone who had the great pleasure of meeting her. Patty had a remarkable way of making one feel welcomed and part of her inner circle with no hesitation. "Brighten the corner where you are" is no exaggeration. In fact, it was just the beginning with Aunt Patty -- she brightened places far beyond her corner.

Love, Anne, John and Sharon Hofmann
