Patsy Wolfe

Patsy Ann Wolfe, 85, passed away on February 14, 2017 at Bethany Life in Story City. A Celebration of Life will take place at Pine Lake State Park in Eldora, Iowa on June 3, 2017 at 11am.

Patsy was born to Harry and Rose (Smith) Wolfe on November 23, 1931 in Big Springs, WI. She married, and later divorced, Donald Annett in 1949. She married, and later divorced, Enoch (Ed) Higbee in 1961. She married Richard Combs in 1976.

Preceding her in death, are her parents; son, Donald (Spark) Annett; grandson, Richard James; son-in-law, Phillip Ogg; brother-in-law Dale Jenkins, and newphew, Tom Jenkins.

She is survived by her husband: Richard; children: Valleri A. Ogg of New Hampton, IA, Frank L. Annett (Sandy) of Cambridge, IA, Lizella M. (Raymond) Perry of Union, IA, Patricia A. (Traele) Annett-Jaeger of Cedar Rapids, IA, Mary B. Higbee-Hardee of Radcliffe, IA, Eadwina D. (Donald) Combs of Ellsworth, IA, and Enoch L. “Nick” (Shanon) Higbee III of Union, IA; 26 grandchildren; 57 great-grandchildren; 9 great-great-grandchildren; sister: Valerine Jenkins; and nephew: Patrick Jenkins.

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.
