Patricia Louise John, 79

Patricia Louise (Tripp) John, Sept. 19, 1932, to Feb. 9, 2012.
Patís courageous battle against cancer ended with dignity and grace 
on Feb. 9, 2012. She was surrounded and comforted by her loving 
children and grandchildren, and will be deeply missed by us all.
Grandma Pat was devoted to her seven grandchildren, family and 
dearest friends. A true Packers fan, she was fondly named the "Packer 
Ref" by her family. She loved Caribbean sunsets, bowling, music (Ella 
and Frank), novels, movies, Jeopardy, crossword puzzles and Friday 
lunches with Marion. In 1988, she was inducted into the Wisconsin 
State Womenís Bowling Hall of Fame.  She lived life to its fullest 
right to the end.

The family wishes to thank Dr. Marks of the Froedtert Hospital Cancer 
Center, Horizon Home Care and Hospice and Margaret Donegan for their 
kindness and support through this difficult journey.  They let Mom do 
it her way.

Pat is survived by the ones she loved: Arno John; Linda, Brandon and 
T.J. Winters; Cindy, Carl and Bryan Scholz; Susan, Joe, Chris and 
Megan Buchel; William (Kathy) John and Charlie DeMars; Steve, Ann 
(Vogt) and Eric John. She is fondly remembered by Irmgard Buchel and 
Opa (Karl) Scholz; Aunt Birdie Tripp; Jeff Tripp; Greg (Vicki) Tripp; 
Mark (Amy) Tripp; and Jim (Julia) Tripp. She is also survived by many 
other dear relatives and friends.

Pat was preceded in death by Fred H. Tripp, Louise K. Marshall 
(Kietlinski) and Robert C. Tripp.
