She was the step-daughter of her step-father, Jesus Martinez; and her extensive immediate family consisted of four sisters and two brothers; as well as five step-brothers and one step-sister. As a young woman, she married Pedro F. Hernandez on May 28, 1965, and they were devoted parents to four children and one step-daughter.

Patsy was a dear and cherished mother, sister, aunt and friend, and everyone treasured her tender heart, generosity and soft voice that made everyone feel at home. She will be missed dearly by all her loved ones and anyone who knew her, knows that she loved reading, going to Bingo, watching game shows, and playing Dominoes with her sisters. Petra gave her life to Jesus Christ and loved to learn the Scriptures while reading her cherished Bible. Her family is forever grateful for the extraordinary outpour of support and love.
