Dear Christenson Family- We are truly sorry for the passing of your dear Mom and Grandma.  Patty was a spunky, fun lady with a cute smile!  I remember fondly when Dale and Patty were dating, how cute and loving they were at the picnics at the Larson  farm - what fun we had.  Those were thee "good ole days"!!!!!!  Remember the fun times. Sincerely, Beverly (Badger) and Pete Delisle.

Many good memories with Dale and Patty and they will be missed, Our thought and prayers go out to the family..

Pat and I were good friends for most of our lives, through 12 years of  school and  we always kept in touch from then on.  Pat still had her sense of humor and independent streak even in the summer of 2023 when we were last together.  She had more than her share of pain and surgeries, but I never heard her complain, she just kept doing the best she could.  Our sympathy to her family in the loss of their mother and grandmother.    Dan and Jeanne

We are hoping Pat and Dale are on their pontoon catching lots of fish. 
RIP Patti no pain!

I have so many fond and happy memories of Patty. I worked with her at Mt Olive. She is always upbeat and helpful. I appreciated her input with my then infant and 2 toddlers. What a sweet soul. You are all in my prayers. Many will miss you Patty.
