Patricia Gurka was a loving, giving, compassionate mother of 4 whose life was taken too soon. Only 47 years old, she was killed by a drunk driver on August 11, 2012 after the car she was a passenger in slammed into a pole and ejected her even though she was wearing her seatbelt. Our mother was also a grandmother to 2 beautiful grandchildren, never to know her other grandchildren that have yet to come along; she should have seen all of them grow up, graduate, get married, maybe even see them have children. She was a nurse at a long term care facility where she was loved by her patients as she eased their suffering and brought them joy with her positive attitude and love for life. She always saw the positive in every situation, which also happened to be her downfall, as the driver of the vehicle was her boyfriend, who was the drunk driver, had been arrested for DUI and who was driving with a suspended license. The laws should have protected our mother, but a light in the world has gone out and we never want others to suffer the way we have. We never want those who knew her to forget her-because those who love her never will.
