It is with great sorrow we announce the passing of Patricia Ann Zehren, on Tuesday, September 27, 2022. Patricia was born on December 7, 1939, the daughter of Frank and Beatrice (Beschta) Schuh. She was a very loving and generous woman. Patricia loved to give hugs and when asked for something, she never said no. She usually had an opinion, and wore many hats throughout her life: daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and caretaker.
Patricia held many working positions, the longest being at Zwicker’s Knitting Mill, where she held varied union positions. In retirement she worked for Valley Eye, as a candy striper. In her free time, she enjoyed sewing, cross stich, gardening, woodworking, painting, camping, traveling, and playing cards with relatives and friends. She adored time spent with family especially the grandkids and great grandkids, and she adored her daughter, Lisa.
Pat is survived by her children: Mike (Elaine) Schink, Mark (Lily) Schink, and Lisa (John) Ruffing; 7 grandchildren: Faith (Brad) Lambie, Chris Schink, Ashley (Travis) Kuepper, Jasan Ayhon, Alli (fiancé Logan Ochoa) Ruffing, Eli Ruffing, and Izac Ruffing; 6 great grandchildren: Riley Lambie, Casey Lambie, Jaydon Meyer, Cole Schink, Lasey Schink, and James King; siblings: Gary Schuh, Rick (Debbie) Schuh, and Judy Van Cuick; many nieces and nephews other relatives and friends.
