Patricia married David Olsen on November 25, 1976 in Wisconsin Rapids, WI. They were happily married for 39 years.
Patty will be remembered for her generous, caring, and loving personality. She was always putting others first. Her true persona was shown by her involvement in the community following her retirement. She volunteered 6 years at the Lincoln Center with Dr. Thomas DeRoche. She also volunteered her time to various people who needed home care. In her spare time, she enjoyed tending to her flower garden, fishing, camping, and getting together with family.
