She was a member of the V.F.W. Auxiliary in Kahoka and was a former member of the Clark Co. Moose Lodge.  She enjoyed spending time with her many friends there.

Patty was kind and compassionate.  She loved to joke and laugh and at times, dance.  She enjoyed crocheting and sewing.  She loved sitting on her swing listening to and sharing time with her grandchildren.  They brought so much joy to her life and spending time with them and her nieces and nephews were her happiest times.

At her request, Patty has been cremated under the direction of Wilson Funeral Home in Kahoka.

Extended family and friends were invited Saturday, December 16, 2017 at noon to join her family for a luncheon at the Ayer-Boatman Post # 4342 of the V.F.W. in Kahoka followed by a time of sharing beginning at 1:30.
