Patricia Stollenwerk, 80
March 26, 1933 — May 21, 2016
Patricia “Pat” Stollenwerk, surrounded by family, passed away Saturday, May 21, 2016, at the age of 80. Pat was born March 26, 1933, in Milwaukee, the only daughter of Walter and Vicki (nee Chlebowski) Gedymin.
She is survived by her loving and dedicated husband of 59
years, Gerald (Jerry), along with her children, Keith, Scott (Laurie),
Carrie (Jim) and Noel. Her oldest daughter Lynnette Scott (Patrick)
preceded her in death, as did her brothers, Richard and Walt. She is
also survived by nine grandchildren and six great-grandchildren, along
with numerous relatives, friends and loved ones who were touched by her
kind, thoughtful ways.
Pat and Jerry
retired to Hartford, where she continued her active role, this time at
the couple’s condo association, where she served on committees, and
wrote and edited the community newsletter. Her skills at writing were
first published 45 years previously, when she was a reporter/staff
member of the Midwest Corps News at the age of 17. Her signature “Just
Pat” at the end of each piece submitted was typical of her modest
nature, but those she touched during her full life know she was much
more than just Pat. She was a gift shared by God, with whom she is
reunited, along with her daughter, brothers, parents, and many relatives
and friends. She will be greatly missed.
