Patricia Ann May


Sept. 15, 1933 - Aug. 21, 2012



Patricia Ann May of Waukesha died Tuesday, Aug. 21, 2012, at the age of 78. She was born in Milwaukee on Sept. 15, 1933, the daughter of Harold and Florence Roets.


Patricia worked for more than 25 years at Waukesha Memorial Hospital. She enjoyed traveling and visiting with family and friends. We will all miss her wit and sense of humor. Patricia is survived by her brother, Jack Roets; children, Dr. Judy (Dr. Paul) May, Jeff (Karrie) May, Jean (Ricardo) De La Paz and Jill (Ted) Williams; eight grandchildren; and one great-grandson.


A wonderful woman died today. She was not famous or rich, but she was kind, loving and generous. She loved life and all who knew her loved her. She was one of the sweetest women that ever lived. She was our Mom and our Nanny.


We would like to give a special thanks to the wonderful staff and volunteers at AngelsGrace for the wonderful care they gave to our mother.


Visitation for Patricia will be held from 9:30 a.m. until the 11 a.m. memorial Mass on Friday, Aug. 24, at St. William Catholic Church, 440 N. Moreland Blvd. Waukesha. The Rev. Doug Leonhardt, S.J., will be officiating. Private interment will take place.
