Patti was born August 15th 1957 in McCall, Idaho to Gertrude (GR) and Alvin Crow. Her family moved to Montana when she was very young and she spent her childhood in the Flathead.  Patti moved to Alaska where she spent 15 years enjoying life and family. Prior to returning to Montana in the mid eighties, Patti had been married and divorced twice. When she moved back to the Flathead she married her high school sweetheart, Don Koski.  She became a stepmother to Tony and Amanda Koski. In 1990, Patti gave birth to her only daughter Matti Linn. Patti and Don later divorced in the late nineties. Patti enjoyed her time working at Sawbucks for many years, she also enjoyed working at the legacy cafe and VFW briefly. She loved collecting dreamcatchers and going camping with her family. Patti also adored her grandchildren and loved spending any time with them as she could.
