We were blessed to have you for our mom, Nana, and Great-Nana. You were always there to help, encourage, and show us unending love and support. We will miss you at all the holiday celebrations, sitting around a campfire with a martini (shaken not stirred), and the awesome memories at the cottage on Mole Lake. Pat was an avid Packers and Brewers fan (especially Aaron Rodgers and Josh Hader).
The family would like to thank the wonderful care and compassion of Moments Hospice and ThedaCare Hospice, and the incredible care, attention, and compassion that everyone showed at County Villa Assisted Living in Little Chute.
