Pat worked as a Real Estate Agent for many years in the Chicago Metro area, specializing in new home sales for several construction firms. After retiring, she and Mel moved to Edgerton, and most recently to Orfordville. She enjoyed walking, tending to her flower gardens, reading, and her 4-legged friends who were her constant companions during her illness. She enjoyed meeting new friends through the Krazy Quilters, and later with the Knitting Friends in Janesville. Her greatest love was her family, as they meant the world to her!
She is survived by her husband of 48 years, Mel; her 2 children, Michael Missbach, of Ingleside, IL, and Melissa (Peter) Distel, of Aurora, IL; her 3 brothers, Arthur Karr, Michael (Nancy) Karr, and Thomas (Leslie) Karr; her brother-in-law, Bob (Colleen) Missbach; and by nieces, nephews, and friends. She was preceded in death by her parents, Patrick Karr and Marie Shamroski, and her stepfather, George Shamroski.
At Pat’s request, private family services will be held.
