Nov. 12, 1935 – Sept. 4, 2013
Patricia Marie Sommerfeld/ Storey completed her journey home in peace Wednesday Sept. 4, 2013. Pat was born Nov. 12, 1935, in La Crescent, Minn. She was preceded in death by her parents, two brothers (Humfeld), and her husbands, Joseph H. Storey and Bernhard E. Sommerfeld.
She lovingly leaves her son, Tim Storey; her daughter, Deborah (Greg) Mattson; five beloved granddaughters, Tiffany (Blake) Gillotte, Marie, Hannah, Bryce and Signe; and a great-grandson, Ashton.
She was a graduate of Viterbo College in La Crosse in spring of 1957, where she received salutatorian honors and a bachelor’s degree in music education. She held immense pride in her family, her heritage and Catholic faith. She loved to grow and tend to flowers, and that kind and patient nature touched everyone she met.
She will be missed by so many and leaves us all with the unconditional love she lived.
In lieu of flowers, donations to Fisher Center for Alzheimer’s are highly appreciated and wisely used, as documented by its charity navigator rating of 66 out of 70. You can make your donation in remembrance of Patricia Sommerfeld on their website.
There will be a memorial service at 11 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 19, at St. Anthony’s on the Lake, Pewaukee.
