Patricia M. Drager
Patricia M. (Pat) Drager of Butler was called to God on September 6, 2015, at the age of 81, while in the care of AngelsGrace Hospice in Oconomowoc.
Pat was born in Milwaukee on March 2, 1934, to Robert and Marguerite Bach. A graduate of Shorewood High School, Pat had a long career working for, among others, the American Bowling Congress, St. Agnes Grade School in Butler and the Catholic Archdiocese of Milwaukee, from which she retired.
Pat was an avid bowler and water skier in her younger years. The rest of her life was devoted to her family. She lived for heading “up north” to “the lake” with family and friends.
Skiing, “deer looking” and relaxing under the big pine tree were all favorites. Auctions and “rummaging” were frequent pastimes, as no bargain would escape her. She was also a voracious reader and a Packer fan without equal. If your phone rang after a touchdown or turnover during the game, you knew it was her. She also loved frequent lunches with her freinds.
Pat was preceded in death by her parents, Robert (Bob) and Marguerite Bach; her husband, Dale; her sons Kevin and Michael; and her brother Bob Jr.
She is survived by her brother Bill Bach (Christine); son Daniel (Penny); son James (Pat) (Patti); grandson Cody (Christi); and her godchild, Judy Rutter (Christopher).
A funeral will be held Saturday, September 12. Visitation begins at 9:30 am with a service at 11 am, both to be held at St. Agnes Church in Butler. Following the service, Pat will be taken to St.
James Cemetery in Neshkoro to be laid to rest next to the love of her life, Dale, where there will be a short graveside ceremony.
In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the “House of Peace,” Milwaukee, WI.
