Davis on May 3, 1953. They enjoyed 62 years together. Pat was an active member of First United Methodist Church where she participated in couples group, women's Bible study, and donut Sunday and providing baked goods for church events. Pat's greatest joy was spending time with her extended family; the older generations and later with her 6 grandchildren. She was blessed to have shared in the lives of 5 generations of family. She never tired of traveling many miles to watch a dance recital, ball game, cross country meet or tennis match. Many family memories with multiple generations were made with boating outings on lakes in SD and MN. Cooking and baking for family and friends was her favorite pastime; a love she handed down to the younger generations. Pat pursued her life long dream of becoming a nurse and obtained her LPN license at the age of 50. She worked at the hospital, clinic and assisted living before retiring. Her kindness and tender care touched many patients. Her love and devotion to family will live on on the hearts of her children and grandchildren who are blessed to have shared her life.
