Throughout the years Patricia worked at the Fashion Shop in Leon, Iowa, Sun Valley Country Club in Ellston, Iowa, Bunn O’Matic in Creston, Iowa and Precinct Manager, Decatur City, Iowa. Most importantly her favorite roles were farm wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother. Patricia was an exceptional advocate for her children, loyal wife, daughter and sister. 

Patricia was a devout Catholic and through the years was a member of St. Patrick’s of Grand River and St. Brendan’s in Leon, Iowa. She especially enjoyed vegetable and flower gardening, and a well-kept landscaped lawn delighted her. She was a skilled baker and believed in dessert first.
