Preceded in death by parents; son Corey Varner in 2016; and step-son, Adam Sliko in 2021.
Survived by husband, Kenneth J. “Kenny” Sliko, Adams Township; and her children Keith Varner D.C. and companion Kristi Kuhn, St. Michael; and Carrie (Varner) Wasnick, South Fork, whom she shared with her former husband, James Varner. Also survived by loving grandsons, Jacob, Logan, and Ethan Wasnick, who were “the apples of her eyes!”; brother, Jack and Johnnie Baxter; and nephew, Brandon and his family.

Patti drove school bus for Miller Motors for 17 years and more recently for McIlwain School Bus Lines since 2003. Employed by the Johnstown Credit Bureau, Inc. for 51 years. Active member of Mt.

Patti was the third part of the “Golden Girls” along with Sandy Burkey and Nancy Trostle, her best and trusted friends to the end.

Patti’s lifelong dedication to helping others ended with one final act for society as it was her wish that her body be donated to science.
