During her time in Michigan, she was an active member of the Escanaba Lady’s Elks, Pat would often be seen ‘swinging the sticks’ at the Escanaba Country Club where she played on the golf leagues available and was an active member of the Beta Sigma Phi Sorority where she served as the President of the Local Chapter.  

She is survived by her children: Sam Trentin, Vicki (Dave) Bogenschuetz, Scott (Lisa) Johns; her grandchildren: Athena (Robert Dye) Trentin, Chris, (Brandy) Trentin, Eric Frank and his significant other, Kayla Schwibinger; great-grandchildren; and her siblings: Joan Dart & Kathy Knecht.  She is further survived by her nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.  

She was preceded in death by her parents; her husbands: Patrick, Alfred & John; and her siblings: Mary List, Dorothy Disbrow & James Donovan.

Patricia’s family would like to thank everyone at Compassus Hospice, and everyone at Plymouth Health Services, especially CNA Chris for the loving care that was provided to Patricia and her entire family.
I was so sorry to hear of your Mom's passing. Pat was a great lady and I always enjoyed chatting with her either at Bink's or at the house waiting for you.
May God bless her.
