Burial was in Pine Hill Cemetery, Davenport.

Pat died suddenly and unexpectedly Friday, Dec. 3, 2010 at her residence in Bettendorf.

Patricia Ann Reardon was born Nov. 4, 1948 in Kansas City, a daughter of Francis M. and Martha M. (Camerlink) Reardon. She was united in marriage to James “Don” Pruitt, Jr. on June 13, 1970 in Kansas City. They were blessed to have celebrated over 40 years of marriage.


She was employed for the past 15 years as the office manager for Quad City Golf Cars, Bettendorf. In earlier years Pat had offered home daycare to numerous Bettendorf area children. This was truly a passion and labor of love; it gave her the opportunity to share her kindness and gentle loving guidance to kids.

She was a member of St. John Vianney Church and had been a volunteer for the parish, helping with meals or baking. Pat was a very generous woman; she would always put others before herself and lived for her family. Her love for her family, comforting words and daily actions will be what her family will forever cherish.

Pat was also a talented seamstress, and a phenomenal cook and baker. She was known for her baking talents and made many cakes and specialty treats for family and friends.

Memorials to honor her can be made in her name to University of Iowa Children’s Hospital, Iowa City, Iowa.
