Patricia Perry (Preston) has worked in the family business most of her life, from the earlier years as a teenager working in the kitchen as a dietary aide to now, as the Administrator of Alamo Nursing Home and Rehabilitation. For many years Patricia has seen the passion and dedication her grandparents provided in helping others. That's when she made the decision to continue in her family's foot steps and pursued her career into the medical field. While she was attending Otsego High School, Patricia was determined to complete her certification in becoming a certified nurses aide. When she had graduated from Otsego High School in 1969, she went on to Bronson Methodist Hospital to attend nursing school where she then received her license as a registered nurse in 1972.
Since Patricia's graduation, she only had one place in mind to start her career as a nurse, which was the family business. After working as a floor nurse for several years, Patricia was promoted to Assistant Director of Nurse, and then the Director of Nursing and maintaining this role for many years. She had the opportunity to work alongside her mother Catherine, who was the Administrator, until retiring in 2007. Patricia then became the third generation Administrator of Alamo Nursing Home, following in the footsteps of her grandmother, and mother before her. Now after 55 years of service with Alamo Nursing Home and Rehabilitation, Patricia continues to carry the family tradition with the family business and now working along aside her son Quinn, the Assistant Administrator.
Patricia is an Alamo county native, she grew up on the corner of C Ave, then moved into an A-frame house by the Hidden Lake Campground. After finally settling back next door to her childhood home where she and her husband Frank built a home in 1975. Patricia raised her 3 three children, Melissa, Quinn, and stepdaughter Lynn. During her spare time Patricia enjoys golfing, spending time with her grandchildren, laying around the pool, and enjoying some time at the casino. She makes sure to attend all of her grandchildren sporting events to cheer them on. Patricia involves herself with Saint Margaret's Catholic Church, where she's been on mission trips to Haiti and Fort Myers Beach. It is fair to say, Patricia is always willing to help in any way she can, it doesn't matter if it is regarding church relations, community events, family, friends, or the Alamo Nursing Home and Rehabilitation family.
