Patty attended Beardstown Schools. She was a dedicated member of Trinity Lutheran Church in Arenzville, and her homemade noodles were always a hit at the chicken noodle dinners. She took pride in raising her family. Patty was an active volunteer with Special Olympics and dedicated 20+ years hosting the hospitality room for the Lady Tiger Classic. She was gifted in the kitchen with the ability to cook. Her greatest joy was being her grandchildren’s biggest cheerleader at any of their sporting events. Her contagious smile will be missed by all those who knew her.
