She especially enjoyed cooking, sewing, quilting, traveling and music. As a mandolin, piano, and gifted harmonica player, Pat helped entertain at many family functions and, in her young years, played music for church youth dances with her father on the fiddle. She was a school bus driver for twenty years. Pat was a member of Saint Kateri Catholic Church in Ridgway and recently enjoyed making rosaries for St. Mary’s Rosary Guild to send to missions.  In addition to her husband, Pat will be missed by her children, Debra (David) Cheek of Junction, Kim (Derek) Martin of Eldorado, John of Ridgway, and Brad (Eleanor) of Evansville; grandchildren, Ryan Harper, Joshua (Ariel) Cheek, Amanda Cheek and fiancé Chris Schupp, Annie Rose (Joe) Keith, Jade Martin, Jackson, Jenkin, and Jensen Naas, Emily (Isaac) Gibbs, and Carter (Elle) Naas; and six great-grandchildren, Landon Brown, Reagan Cheek, Juliana and Theo Keith, and Natalie and Riley Gibbs.  She is also survived by brothers, Elmer (Ellen), Charles, Frank, and Paul (Phyllis) Berberich, sister Mary (Bob) Hayden, and many nieces and nephews.
