Pat worked at Meinerz Creamery, Beatrice and Conagra all around Fredericksburg. Before moving to the Fredericksburg area, she also worked at St. Francis Hospital in Waterloo as a nurse’s aide. Her grandchildren were everything to her. She loved babysitting for them and helping them in any way that she could. In her later years, she enjoyed watching her grandchildren raise their children, her great-grandchildren. She was very active in her community as she taught Sunday School, sang in the church choir, was a member of the Moose Lodge, led a bible study group and was a Den Mother for the Cub Scouts. In her free time, she enjoyed cooking, quilting and taking fun vacations with her friends. Her kind soul and loving nature will be deeply missed by many.

  4. My heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Ms. Patricia. I am so sorry for your loss. May you find comfort through the loving and happy memories that you share and those that you keep close to your hearts. May you also look to our loving Heavenly Father, the GOD of all comfort, to provide what you need at this very sad time. (2 Corinthians 1:3,4, Psalms 83:18). He promises us that very soon, “He will wipe every tear from our eyes and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” Revelation 21:3,4, Isaiah 33:24. He also promises us that there will be a resurrection of our loved ones that we have lost in death, and they will have the opportunity to live forever in perfect health in Paradise right here on earth. (John 5:28,29, Psalms 37:10,11). What wonderful promises! Can you imagine a time on earth when there will be no more sickness, pain or death? May all of God’s promises give you a measure of comfort, peace, hope and strength. I personally found very comforting information on jw.org. when I experienced the loss of my parents and siblings.
