Pat was a lifelong member of the United Methodist Church in Borth, WI.

Pat was a dear friend through all our lives. We grew up on dairy farms in the same neighborhood, attended the same one room school, attended the same High School, married, raised our family and settled in the old neighborhood and attended the same church. And through all this time I always knew she was there for me if I ever needed her, that was Pat always there for people. Rest in peace dear lady, you will be missed by many, especially Dale and the kids, they were blessed to have you as a wife and Mom.

Pat was a beautiful soul that will be greatly missed. She always had a smile on her face and saught the best in people. I feel blessed that she taught me piano for years. She showed me patience and love and I will forever be grateful to have known her. My thoughts and prayers are with Dale and the rest of Pat's family and friends.
