    I was so sorry to hear of your passing. I knew things weren’t well with in talking to Kelli. I will always remember going to the trailer with Tyler so he could cuddle with his Aunt Pat. We weren’t family but always made to feel like we were. R.I.P Pat

  2. She was one of the kindest souls I will ever meet. I worked with her at Mooretown Public School. Lovely, lovely lady! Rest In Peace, Pat!

  3. Pat Cherski will always be remembered for her “LARGER THEN LIFE” personality. My BEST memory was those moments the crew of the S.C.I.T.S Review knew Mrs. Cherski was to be in the audience. Pat’s laughter was more contagious then the Delta variant and her unstopping uncontrollable chortals rolled throught the auditorium like waves in the ocean and each of use road those waves to magnificent performances, right Jake (I like to sing and dance). Mooretown hockey was also a lucky recipient of Pat and those like me were the benefactors if that wonderful woman. From my family to the Cherski family our heart felt condolences for your loss. Mrs. C will be missed.

    Duchess was a loving and kind soul who accepted everyone for who they were no matter what. I volunteered in Mooretown when she was helping the children and I could see how much of a difference she made to each one. They loved her as much as she loved them. May you rest in peace! I know there is a small piece of you in everyone who was lucky enough to have meet you!
    Lots of love and hugs to the family from Cinderella and Caitlynn

    My condolences to my dear friend, Kelli, and to the entire family.
