Pat was born in Goff, Kansas, on July 21, 1937, to Pearl (Hixon) and Clifford Adams. She was briefly married twice, first to Rick Roberts and later to Gene Bunger.

After graduating from Lafayette High School, she was a flight attendant, 47 years, for Continental Airlines. She worked national, as well as international flights. Her first flight was in 1956, on a DC 3 aircraft, and her uniform was a fashionable black dress, white pearls, white gloves, red velvet tam, and of course, a girdle. As the Vietnam War was ending, Pat worked flights that brought our soldiers home.

In 2003, Pat ended her career on the Boeing 777, flying round trip to Tokyo.

Pat resided in Redondo Beach, California, Denver, Colorado, and retired in St. Joseph. She was a member of the Ashland United Methodist Church. She enjoyed traveling, the theater, reading, playing bridge and Mah-Jongg. She especially enjoyed spending time with her family.
