Patty Petet says
Pat was highly intelligent. She had a vast amount of knowledge about Colonial history as well as genealogy. She helped countless women join many genealogical societies. Pat wasn’t in any organization for glory or high positions. She simply wanted to make a significant contribution in an unselfish way to the groups she was in. She always had the best interest of the group in mind. She worked very diligently and brought integrity to what she did. She could be counted on to do a thoroughly good job. She was a Registrar General in the Colonial Dames of the 17th Century. Her knowledge and expertise will be impossible to replace. She is held in very high esteem by her colleagues. She will be missed by many. Thank you Pat Horton for furthering our Society. You are highly respected. We will be forever grateful.

Julie Thomas says
Was so glad I was able to meet Pat and work with her a bit on some genealogy. Her passion for family history was remarkable.
Martin and Carlene Morford says
Patricia is such a beauty and already missed, with her upbeat personality! She was so very proud of Red and her children. Pat absolutely loved talking about her childhood upbringing and ancestral conversations of all kinds. She was dedicated to research and civic duty. Pat was an encyclopedia for research, with her vast knowledge, for ancestral heritage. She was an outstanding guide in Washington DC. Her memory will be served well by all who benefited from her friendship.
Love and warmest sympathy to her family. We are deeply sorry for your loss.
