Patty’s dream was simple, she wanted nothing more than to enjoy a day shopping with her friend and nominator, Sarah. Patty and Sarah have been friends for years and Patty attributes Sarah with helping her get into the assisted living facility she now calls home and being her rock when things are tough.

An Omaha South High alumni, after graduation Patty went on to Goodwill’s training program. Patty is a hard worker who not only worked but volunteered for years at UNMC. She could be seen cheerfully assisting in the dish room and clearing off tables.  After she retired, she still found time to

give back. Patty would show guests around, provide information to visitors, and assist in the pharmacy. Now she still volunteers in her own community at Royale Oaks where everyone seems to know and appreciate her.

Patty said that she had a blast on her shopping trip. She shopped until she was ready to go home and sleep! After being picked up in a limo, she and her guest were driven to Mama’s Pizza and Village Pointe for an afternoon of fun, shopping, and delicious food. Patty, who does not like to spend much on herself, was able to purchase some much needed shoes and clothes, and indulge in her favorite pizza, Hawaiian.

Dreamweaver would like to thank Sarah Duey for this nomination, Village Pointe, Mama’s Pizza, and VIP Limo for their part in helping this dreamer have a most memorable experience!
