Patti O'Keefe (Hockenbury)
Patti left Eli's Cheesecake Co. after 25 years and moved from Chicago to Zionsville, Indiana in 2010 to be closer to her sister Maureen. She continued working in the Food Service business in sales until 2013 when after a second "down sizing" decided to simply retire. She was married September of 2013 after many years of being a single parent raising my son Ryan (1992). Ryan now lives in Atlanta with his partner and two dogs.
Patti lives in Williamsport, IN which is about 30-35 minutes southwest of Lafayette, IN., home to Purdue with her husband and 2 neurotic dogs. She is active in her community (very small towns) which doesn't have a stop light in town. She is currently putting together a fundraiser to off set the cost of running their Fall Festival and to support their local food banks. It keeps her busy and to tell the truth, it is often times harder work than a real job! She also repurposes old furniture and give chalk paint classes which keeps her "creative juices" flowing.
