Patricia "Pat" Nally served as assistant to the dean of the Ithaca College School of Business from 1985 until her death in 2009. She was a vital part of the business school, and is remembered for her total commitment to any and all: students, faculty, staff, and administrators. No one was more important than the person who was right in front of her and needing her help.
When asked about her feelings regarding her work in the business school, she would answer in the same way every time, "This is a great place to work! But it's really more like a family than a workplace."
Patricia was a deacon, church treasurer, and devoted member of the First Baptist Church of Trumansburg. She was a dedicated employee of Ithaca College, and a friend to all on its faculty, staff, and student body.
