Patricia, or Pat, was born January 31, 1922 in Fargo, N.D. to Walter and Bertha (Eldridge) Covert. She graduated from Fargo Central High School in 1940. She graduated from Interstate Business College in 1941 and began her 39-year career as a secretary and office administrator. At 8 years old, Pat knew she would one day work in an office. When her and her mother would walk by Dakota Business College on 8th street, Pat told her mother she would go to a business school like that one day. Pat especially enjoyed one of her first jobs working at Hector Airport surrounded by the handsome and friendly WWII pilot trainees. Pat would say she always had her ear hanging out for career opportunities. She was known to turn down an offer if it sounded too boring. She enjoyed the many friends and associates she worked with over the years. Pat found her dream job at the US Department of Agriculture working in the North Dakota State ASC office in Fargo. Her dedication to her office resulted in Pat receiving excellent reviews. She was recognized for superior performance and received the agency’s highest award which was an Outstanding Performance Rating. She received a cash reward and was recognized with an article in the Fargo Forum. She retired in 1980 after 37 years of service. As a child, Pat enjoyed traveling to the west coast by train with her parents and sister Sally. She said she felt like a millionaire on the trip when the Covert's were 1 of 2 families aboard the special air-conditioned train car. Pat's passion to travel continued throughout her adult life. Pat enjoyed reading, the Art’s and music. She walked everywhere, loved Fargo and enjoyed her feline friends. Pat was a proud member of the 8th Street Divas, a female social group. Pat was preceded in death by her parents, her sister Sally Covert, along with Covert and Eldridge family members. She is survived by her cousins, Jeff Bartholomay, Vickie Kozuck, Connie Onstad, Karen Covert, Kent Covert and their families. Special thanks to the wonderful staff at Sanford, Elim and Eventide who helped care for our beloved Pat.
