In Remembrance

Pat Garske - Class of 1979

Pat leaves many "holes" in our family and the community.  Pat attended Good Shepherd Catholic School, Branciforte Middle School, Soquel High and UC Santa   Cruz. She taught at Ceiba College Preparatory Academy in Watsonville. One of Pat's contributions to a SHF meeting was the idea of bringing  the Alumni together in marching in the homecoming parade (fellow band members & classmates)  Thanks to all that are making it possible.
