Patricia was born in Watertown on March 11, 1961, daughter of Elmer and Marilyn Moran. She was a 1979 graduate of Watertown High School. On Feb. 22, 2007, she married William “Bill” Verriden.
Patricia had been employed as an inspector by MasterMold and had worked for other manufacturing facilities in the area. Pat loved the outdoors. She found great joy in tending to her many bird houses, bird baths, gardening and browsing the farmers market with family and friends. Always a talented cook and baker, Pat readily loved to share the fruits of her labor. Opening presents on Christmas was not complete until we opened Pat’s gift bag of homemade breads. Pat had a strong sense of patriotism and honored the veterans in countless ways.
