Graduation Year: 

Patricia ‘Patti’ Kennelly Boeckman, Corpus Christi :: is a professional writer who says she flourished under the tutelage of her professional writer husband, Charles Boeckman. At the age of 76, she is still writing and has a publisher who is reissuing her previous works and current novels. She also wrote a light-hearted weekly column for her local newspaper for several years. When her husband of 50 years died, she moved in with her daughter and her family, which includes two lively grandsons “who are the delight of my life. We are soon moving to another state, so I have a new adventure to anticipate.” Her favorite campus memory was meet-ups in the student union.
