Patricia C. O’Hara (nee Morgan)

May 22, 1944 – April 25, 2012

On April 25, 2012, the heavenly angels came down and gently carried Patricia C. O’Hara (nee Morgan) to her eternal garden, where she joined her daughter Lisa, father Earl and so many others she so dearly missed.

She was born on May 22, 1944, in Milwaukee, the daughter of Earl and Loretta (nee Kaminski) Morgan. For many years, she had worked at Michael’s Restaurant and the Eagles Club and was currently working at Carroll University. Pat was a proud member of the Waukesha Noon Lioness and Eagles Club. Pat will best be remembered as a fond friend to many and a dear friend to more. Her smile was contagious, her laugh constant, and her love of life was always and forever. Pat taught us all the importance of life is to live in the moment. She danced and smiled until the end, at which time we knew to say “See ya later alligator.”

She is survived by her wise mother, Loretta Morgan, whom Pat loved beyond words. She is further survived by her best friend and partner of 25 years, Ken Hauser. She will constantly be missed by her two daughters, Dawn (Ron) Djassemi and DeAnna (Chad) Mlenar; her dear friend for life, Casey Szulc; and her siblings, Judi Monty, Mike Morgan, Danny (Laurie) Morgan and Cyndi (Bill) Kroening, who were Pat’s allies in life, along with their children, they were her refuge and world. Her grandchildren, Joseph (Tiffany), Anthony (Nicki), Elizabeth (Scott), Alex, Austin, Elaina and Josh, dearly loved her. She listened to them, laughed with them, counseled and guided them. Her strength and resilience during her courageous battle with cancer were from the moments she shared with her great-grandchildren: Joey, Madison Morgan, Michael Anthony, Max and her littlest angel, Laila Nicole Christman.

A very special thank you to Carroll University for their tremendous support and love through this difficult time.

Visitation will be held from 10:30 a.m. until the 1 p.m. funeral service Wednesday, May 2, at Randle-Dable-Brisk Funeral Home, 1110 S. Grand Ave., Waukesha. Private interment will be held.
