Thank you Hillview for the wonderful care that Patricia received as a resident. Hillview was her home for 17 years. She was always up-beat, happy and enjoyed her caretakers!

Memorials may be given in Pat’s memory to Hillview Health Care or to English Lutheran Church.

Rejoice in your new life, Patsy – no more suffering – Good-bye until we see you again!

When I am gone, remember this alone

That I loved the charming, lovely things.

Rain swept skies and sun that shone

An April dawn or bird that sings,

The black of night when sun has set –

The quavering songs of birds at morn.

Twilight, when day and night have met

Youth’s gay smile when dreams are born

For He who created beauty for earth and ski

Two-folded increases it for those who die.
