  3. Cathy Schroeder says:

    I will deeply miss this wise woman. We all will. We were blessed to call her friend

  4. Lori Hellerud says:

    My aunt Patti made a definite impact on my life. She was a woman of strong faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and was a faithful servant. She served as a role model for me. She was a true picture of humility. Lowliness of mind that does not seek to exult or assert self, other focused it was never about her. Never grasped rights and privileges. Willingly served and helped others. And was a woman who obeyed God. Galatians 6 verse 9 states Don’t Grow weary from doing good we will reap a harvest. I will miss you. One day we will be reunited together in heaven. To God be the glory forever.

    Ms. Patti was always smiling and it was my pleasure to serve with her at church while attending Grandview Heights in Dubuque. She is now in the loving arms of Jesus and enjoying the promises of King Jesus. Mr. Fred and the rest of the family please know the “Schafer’s” are praying for you all during this time. Psalms 116:15
