Patsy was called mom or grandma by many people over her lifetime. She had 8 children of her own, but she would take in anyone who needed her. She had the biggest heart, and a feisty attitude to go right along with it. She was a caretaker, and if she felt anyone or anything was being treated unjustly, she’d let you know it. She was quite the talker, but she also loved to listen- you could talk to her about literally anything. She was a wealth of knowledge, and enjoyed playing games and reading books. She loved to sing, dance, and enjoyed big family get-togethers (for which she made the best pies and salads). She will be dearly missed by all who knew her.
The family wants to thank Bethany Life in Story City, IA for all their care and kindness.
Memorials may directed to the family.
