She continued her education at Valley City State College where she received her Standard Teaching Certificate. As a young adult she taught school in Parshall and there, met her future husband Sam at a dance.

Patricia married Samuel Andes on December 29, 1952 at the Bordulac Catholic Church. They made their home in California for the winter where Sam was a carpenter and Pat worked at the Five & Dime.  When they returned to North Dakota, they made their home on a farm south of Parshall. In 1960, Sam and Pat moved to their farm southeast of Plaza where they enjoyed raising their family, farming, and attending card parties.   Samuel died in 1978 and Patricia continued to reside on the farm, and work at the Plaza School.  She moved to Parshall in 1992 and to Somerset Court- Minot in 2018.
