I miss you Pat! I think of you often and Paul talks of your TDY today, but what I remember most is when you directed me in Cabaret at the Roadside Theatre in Heidelberg. I never will forget how you showed me to "make an entrance" as Sally. I was so impressed - you showed me so much - you were so great to work with and made it so much fun....Life is a Cabaret, old chum....come join the Cabaret. I still sing that song... and think of you my friend. I know you are in a better place, but we will always miss you! xoxoxoxo

I knew Patti at UW Eau Claire and I treasure happy memories of working in the costume shop and on stage with her. She was a lovely, lively fun, talented lady. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends as we continue to hold Patti and all who perished on 9/11 in remembrance and love.

I recognized Patís name on the list of those lost at the Pentagon, but this site provided the first confirmation that it was the Pat that I knew. I met Pat at the Heidelberg Roadside Theatre in Germany in the mid 1980ís. Pat was such a lovely person I just wanted to help her out with stage construction, painting and anything else to support her plays. I remember all the emotional intensity building up to opening night. I remember taking down the set the morning after a final performance and being struck that live theater is like life, you have to enjoy it while you can. I had the chance to drive Pat up into the hills overlooking the Heidelberg castle one beautiful day and talking about things other that theater. I remember her telling me about all the things she wanted to do when she returned to the US. I deeply regret that we lost Pat but take comfort in learning that Patís spirit lives on in her two sons.

We were lucky enough to have Pat as our neighbor across the alley in Takoma Park. Pat was the neighbor everyone wants; friendly, vivacious, always a smile and kind word, engaging conversation. her spirit always contagious and uplifting. She did leave us two sons who have many of her qualities. Pat we miss you dearly and think of you often.

I will always remember Pat as the person who gave me that chance at my first job out of college in Bamberg, GErmany. She gave me the chance to start my dreams. Even now, I think of her boys and how much they have grown 10 years later. How proud their mom was of her boys! Thank you Pat for allowing me to dream big! I think of you many times over - and how much you have influenced me and others around me to do what we love! I will always have a space in my heart for you.

With President Obama's news last night, I thought of Patti all over again. We were at Steven's Point together. God rest her soul and the souls of all those we lost. Peace to their grieving families.

As the anniversary of this tragedy has again come and passed, I was digging thru my picture albums of the 2 years we spent together at UW-Stevens Point. I pulled out almost 1000 slides and pictures (back in the days of film and slide film) and sat down and cried. Pics of Patty working on sets, working on her makeup, cooking in the kitchen, asleep in front of the TV, tap dancing with Susan Gingrasso our tap instructor, picture after picture after picture. I look at them and don't know what to do with them all except donate them to her sons, so they can learn more about her, and I wonder.... When will it ever hurt less?...

I'm Brook. I'm 14, and I go to school at St. Johns in AZ. We're doing a project in law to remember all you heroes, no matter what. I'm in 8th grade, and I'm just letting you know that I'm thinking about you.

I'm Brooklynn.... Our class in school is thinking about you.

Each year I put up a 9-11 tribute. There were thousands of people who lost their lives on 9-11 ... BUT there was only one Pat Statz.... She was one of a kind. She was talented and patient, and she knew how to make you feel good about yourself.  I would take my son, Nathan, and daughter, Shelli, to play practice, and before long I was an actor, set builder, painter, cameraman, and, most important, a friend of Pat's. Pat made parts in her plays for young children, teenagers, young soldiers, a couple of us old guys near retirement, spouses of soldiers.... No matter what, Pat made you feel welcome and needed.... God bless you, Pat.

I was stationed in Bamberg, Germany in 1989. I met Pat one day when I wandered into the Stable Theater. I'll never forget my first show, "Tom Sawyer." Pat encouraged me to learn design and production. She taught me to act and dance. She even cured me of my Milwaukee accent (for which I am eternally grateful). In the two years I was stationed there, it was an honor to consider her my director, my mentor, and best of all, my friend.

I have a photo of Patti from our school days at Eau Claire. She is in the make up room helping a fellow actor. The photo is a reflection of her in a mirror and it is quintessential Patti. Make up brush in hand, biggest smile across her face, assisting someone else. That was Patti. I knew her no other way than happy, gracious, and generous. A picture speaks a thousand words. I hold on to that memory as I remember her on this day. There are some people in this world that you meet for only a moment in time but they are with you always. Patti is one of those people to me. My heart goes out to her family on this day of remembrance.

I worked for Pat in the late 90's at the Bamberg YS. She was a sweet, caring, loving person. When I heard that she was killed in the 9/11 attacks, I was absolutely shocked. My condolence goes out to her husband and boys.

Like Dan Dahm, I knew Patti from my college days at Eau Claire, WI. In fact, Patti, Dan, and I were all in a play together, "Death of a Salesman." I played Willy Loman, Dan played my son, Happy, and Patti was a kindly secretary who treated Willy with consideration when he needed it most.

Kindness and consideration were central to Patti's personality. I remember Patti as a tall, slender, and lovely young woman, who moved and spoke with a softness that belied her ability to get things done.

Patti was the kind of woman whose essential goodness made the world a better place. Young men in college often behave with a lamentable coarseness--but that never happened around Patti. One simply didn't have the heart to say or do anything that would offend her innate sense of propriety. Her soft and gentle eyes still shine in my memory, as I'm sure they do with everyone who knew her.

I did not know Patti personally, but after reading these testimonials, I realized she went to the same college as my brother: UWSP, University of Stevens Point, Wisconsin. I had gotten a wrist band with her name on it, and I do say a prayer for her and her family every day. It all just seemed very ironic. God Bless her and her family in the years to come.

Patty and I left for Europe (Germany) in 1983 after graduation from College at Stevens Point. We had hoped to find jobs, which we did and eventually build/run our own theater facility. In remembering Patty I came across the movie on the internet which Id never seen and so here it is for all of you who want to see her acting and here that wonderful voice again.

*** Posted by James Chamberlain on 2007-07-03 ***

I didn't know about Pat's death until just last year, in an exchange with old friends from Heidelberg. I had the great pleasure and good fortune of working with Pat on a few plays in the Heidelberg Roadside Theatre in 1987-88. She was funny, perky, creative, smart, affectionate and devoted to her craft. And she helped me paint my apartment before I returned stateside! Up until I learned of her death I had thought that I had no personal connection to the 9/11 losses. I have learned that I so am wrong. Pat was one of the European dramatic arts' best. What a loss.

*** Posted by Chad Lash on 2007-05-11 ***

I was saddened to find this web site about Pat, even though we lost touch with her we all have thought of her often over the years. We were fortunate enough to meet and work with Pat on a number of plays while we were stationed in Bamburg, Germany. Whether one of us was in a play, working on scenery, or just helping her get through the trials of a production there was always a smile, fun, and laughter with Pat around. ThAnks (the way she would always say it) for being a great friend and wonderful inspiration to us all. You will be missed.

Patti and I were at college together in Eau Claire. We were both students in the Theatre Department. It was a time of learning, hard work, long hours and riotously fun times. Patti was kindness itself and I cannot picture her face in my mind without a smile on it. It's strange the bonds we make with the people we work so closely with. After she left Eau Claire I never saw Patti again, yet on this day of remembrance some twenty years later I cannot stop myself from weeping for the loss of her. To all who mourn her, I wish you peace.

*** Posted by Dan Dahm on 2006-09-11 ***

On September 12th we realized how lucky we were to have had Pat as a neighbor and friend for short time that we did. Pat exemplified the innate goodness and humanism that we all strive for. She still lives on; her two sons look just like her, and are intelligent and very nice young gentlemen. She is proud.
