I remember Pat from Normandin Jr. High and New Bedford HIgh School.

She had really RED hair.  She was a friend to all who knew her.

I remember her late husband John (Joao) Rodrigues.  He lived down the street from us.  When we played baseball or football in the Rayon Mill lot on Bellevile Ave., he was one of the best.  To her family and friends, I offer my Prayers, my deepest sympathy, and God's Peace.

Rest in Peace Pat.

Patricia Dragon Rodriques was one of my neighborhood Normandin Jr High classmates. A truly sweet and caring person. And, so beautiful, as well. Rest in Eternal Peace, Patricia

I remembered Pat from high school, but also worked at BayBank on William street. I remember when she was diagnosed back then, and how she tried to continue to work, she loved her job as administrave assistant to the president of the Bank. 
Her husband John was devoted to her, and it was a tragedy when he passed so young.

RIP Pat, your memory is a blessing.

She will be missed by many people who knew her and had class with her throughout the years.

So sorry to hear of Pat's passing.  I knew Pat from high school as well as her dating her husband, John Rodrigues.  John played clarinet in my Uncle's band.  Both Pat and John were great people.  They were, what I consider, beautiful people.  I hadn't seen Pat for many years, then I saw her at our 50th reunion and was surprised to see her in a wheelchair.  She told me at that time that she had MS and that John had passed and that she was getting help from her sons.
