Collection Historical Note

Patricia “Pat” Lou Colonna was born on November 8, 1939 to Henry Peter Colonna and Lenora Mildred Colonna nee Gillespie in Denison, Texas.  Several years later, on March 27, 1942, her brother, Henry “Hank” Melvin Colonna, was born.  He was killed on October 27, 1954, during the year in which Pat turned fifteen.

Most of Pat’s early education was spent within the Bells school system in Texas.   On May 28, 1953, Pat received a certificate of completion from the Bells Elementary School that granted her admission into the Bells High School.  During her time spent in high school, Pat was active in several school organizations.  In her junior year, she was elected president of her class, associate-editor of the school paper, and was given a part in her class play.  Then in her senior year, Pat was elected editor of the school yearbook [a school publication], head of the program committee, and to the student council.  On May 24, 1957, Pat Colonna graduated from Bells High School.

Pat’s post-secondary education was spent at multiple institutions; Rutherford-Metropolitan School of Business in Dallas, Texas (June 10, 1057 to January 6, 1958), Austin College in Sherman, Texas (September 7, 1960 to Summer 1961), Rider College in Trenton, New Jersey (January 29, 1962 to Spring 1968), and North Texas State University (August 24, 1977 to 1981)

While enrolled in night classes at Rider College in Trenton, Patricia “Pat” Colonna became engaged to Kenneth “Ken” L. Fake.  They were married on November 1, 1963 by the Reverend Thomas E. Carney in the Rectory of the Holy Angels Church in New Jersey.  During their time spent married, Pat and Ken had two sons; Gregory Leverne Fake (born July 21, 1964) and Mark Colonna Fake (born May 27, 1967).  The exact date is unknown but it is assumed that by some point prior to 1971, Pat became divorced from Ken and moved back to Texas.

When Pat moved back to north Texas, she was employed at first with the Denton Record Chronicle and then at the North Texas State University (1972-1974) as an Information Writer within the Office of Public Affairs and Information Services.  After a several year break in which Pat did freelance work, she was re-employed by the University of North Texas (1977-1987) once more as an information writer within the same office.  During this time, Pat did publicity for the School of Music, drama, art, Fine Arts Series, and Union programs as well as serving as an associate editor of the NTSU Today magazine.  She also wrote articles for the NTSU Today magazine, The North Texan (an alumni publication), and other UNT publications.

Approximately six years after Pat left UNT, she became a member of the Peace Corps.  From June 1993 to June 1995, Pat worked in Ulan Bataar, Mongolia as an English teacher sponsored by Confederation of Mongolian Trade Unions.  During her time spent as an English teacher in Mongolia, Pat organized the English Department and trained teachers at a then new college-level institute.

Upon her return to the United States, Pat Colonna became a Denton, Texas business owner.  Her business was called Yoga Denton and she served as one of its instructors.
