Patricia married James W. Sanders on March 2, 1953, in Indiana, and they had three daughters. He passed away May 13, 1981.
Patricia was active for many years as an LPN nurse in home health care. She was a member of St. Patrick’s/St. Anthony’s Catholic Church, where she was very active with the Adoration Group. Patricia was an avid bridge player, worldwide traveler, a volunteer for 45 years at NOCH, but most of all, loved being with her children and grandchildren.
She is survived by her dedicated family: daughters, Nancy (Peter) Baar of Big Rapids and Susan (Jerry) De Frell of West Olive; son-in-law, David Hanson of Spring Lake; six grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; brothers, Michael (Kay) Baker and James Baker; and in-laws, Carl (Karen) Naber. She was preceded in death by her daughter, Julia Hanson; and grandson, James Hanson.
According to Patricia’s wishes, a private family service will be held at Mount Hope Cemetery in Logansport, Indiana. Memorial contributions may be given to Hospice of North Ottawa Community or Autism Support of West Shore. Please visit www.klaassenfuneralhome.com to sign her online guestbook.
