Pat was born June 20, 1943 in North Hollywood, California to Roger and Viola Brown. They soon moved to Wendell, where she grew up on the farm, attended school, and graduated from Wendell High School.
After high school, while attending the University of Idaho, she met and married Jim Assendrup and they had 3 children. They later divorced. After spending several years in California, Pat moved back to Idaho where she became the Editor for the Glenns Ferry Pilot and met and married Larry Smith in 1988. They made their home in Glenns Ferry and then King Hill where they raised and trained horses until they moved to Enterprise Oregon in 2004. Pat continued her love for horses, her dogs, and her parrot Frodo. Her interests were helping other people, photography, and driving her horse Speed Boat.
