My deepest sympathy - Bekki, Mike, and families. Very sorry to hear about your mom's passing. I'm sure she will be missed by many. She always had a storyline "she heard" to express or a recipe to exchange, and she always knew the Freeburg Hangouts and 'The Buzz" in town. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.

Rich and I send our sincere condolences to the Wolff and Lingafelter families. Pat was always a joy to be around and work with together on our children's many 4H projects.

Our condolences to Bekki and all of Patti’s family. I first knew Patti as a checker at Schnuck’s, then as the mother of one of my neighbors, and she later became my mother’s welcoming neighbor and friend in assisted living. While we knew Patti in only a snapshot of time, I remember her as being a warm, caring, friendly person who appreciated family and was proud of her grandchildren. With sympathy, Joyce Jamison and Rob Gimenez

So sorry to hear about Pat’s passing. I first met Pat at the grade school library where I volunteered. I always enjoyed our visits there and later when I’d see her at the public library. My sympathy to all her family.
