Pat loved spending time with friends and family. She led an active life filled with many activities, but what mattered most to her was spending time with her family. She always put family ahead of her own needs. She enjoyed family reunions, holiday celebrations, dining out, cruises, attending plays and shopping. She loved reading a good mystery book on her iPad, was a dedicated fan of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim baseball team and enjoyed watching her favorite soap operas. She also liked putting puzzles together, crocheting blankets, participating in Red Hat activities, planning class reunions, spending time with high school classmates, work colleagues, and friends from City Disco.
Pat spent most of her life living in Des Moines. She graduated from Tech High School in 1955. She worked part time while raising her children, and after became the co-owner of City Disco bar and lounge. While living and working in California for ¬¬¬12 years, she worked at America West Airlines. Upon returning to Iowa, she worked for Bett’s Army Post Surplus before retiring.
She will be forever cherished and remembered by her children, Jeanie Arthur and Ron Lunn, and her grandchildren (6) and great grandchildren (14). She will be missed by her sister, Anita (Tiny) Pack, as well as her many nieces, nephews, and friends and relatives.
