She enjoyed her volunteer work on the Hartington Library Board and registering voters for elections. Pat worked at Carhart Lumber with Louie as the bookkeeper for twelve years, until their retirement in September 1999.
Pat glorifed her Father while here on earth, finished her labors for a kingdom of love, and entered eternal life on July 1, 2017.

We will come together today in the peace of Christ to mourn because we are Christian, to thank the Father for the gift of her life, to celebrate the power of the resurrection of Jesus, and to sing our alleluias of hope because we are Easter people in life and in death. Pat requested that you honor her by caring for others and telling the ones close to you how much you love them!

Jill and Sue - I was so sorry to hear about your mom. I will always remember her in the stands supporting you at all of your activities. I got to have lunch with your mom and dad at Lee Rose's funeral. Even then she gushed about both of you and your successes and your children. She was definitely proud mom and grandma.
