Memorial next Saturday for Patricia B. Werlech, 1932-2016

Family and friends will gather next Saturday for a funeral Mass in memory of Patricia B. Werlech. Here’s the remembrance they’re sharing:

Patricia B. Werlech, born December 20, 1932, youngest of 12 children, died November 5, 2016, in Seattle.

Raised in Chelan; parents Carl and Ethel Fels. Patricia is survived by her husband Donald; children Donita, Deena, Michael, and daughter-in-law Mary-Jo; grandchildren Daniel (22), Joseph (20), Michael (19) Werlech, and Anthony (21) and Alexander (18) Parker; and brother Wilbert Fels. Patricia lost a 2-year battle with cancer, passing away peacefully at home, surrounded by her family.

Patricia was a homemaker and worked in a family business. She had a passion for reading, gardening, hummingbird watching, cooking, entertaining, and celebrating life. Patricia’s greatest joy and happiest times were with her 5 grandsons, doing things for them – cooking something special, cheering at their sporting events, and attending school functions – so that they would always remember Grammy. And they did. She was so proud of her grandsons.

Patricia will be remembered as a loving wife, mother, special grandmother ‘Grammy,’ and friend. Her smile and love will forever live in our hearts.

Donations can be made in her memory to Saint Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Funeral Mass at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church, November 26, 2016, at 10 am, 7000 35th Ave. SW, West Seattle. Burial will be in Calvary Cemetery, Seattle.
