BEISWANGER, Patricia (Pat)

February 15, 1936 – Cutworth, Saskatchewan
January 16, 2019 – Okotoks, Alberta

Patricia Beiswanger of Okotoks passed away on Wednesday, January 16, 2019 at the age of 82 years.

Pat had a full and wonderful life and she will be remembered by all for her great sense of humour! She was a loving mother and grandmother who always put her family first.

In her younger years Pat and her first husband Lawrence “Laurie” spent many weekends camping with family and friends all over Alberta and in Salmon Arm B.C. Pat loved to travel and went on her dream trip to Europe with her twin Bernice and brother-in-law John. She also travelled often with her second husband Ken and their favorite destinations were Hawaii and Las Vegas where they enjoyed indulging in a little bit of gambling. In her later years she looked forward to road trips with her sisters and her niece Melody. Pat loved to entertain and she was a wonderful hostess and amazing cook; her sweet and sour spareribs and homemade buns were second to none!

Pat is survived by her children, Gaye (Mike) Krause, Denise Zentner, Darcy (Yvette) Zentner; grandchildren, Michael (Jannay) Lucas, Melissa Lucas (Tyler Lemermeyer), Derrek Lucas, Darcy Jr (Brittany) Zentner, Ashley Crowchief, Daniel (Brittany) Zentner, Simone Olivier-DaCunha, Tristan Williams, Sarah Williams; great-grandchildren, Bentley Lemermeyer Maddock Lemermeyer, Zack Zentner, Zane Zentner, Zeth Zentner; siblings Eleanor (Ted) Smith, Beverly (Dennis) Zeh, Norman (Lorraine) Henry and sister-in-law Pearl Henry.

Patricia was predeceased by her first husband, Laurie Zentner and her second husband Kenneth Beiswanger; daughter Karen Russell as well as siblings, Bernice (John) Koch, Jean (Bill) Russell, Marion (Bert) Lariviere, Wallace (Carol) Henry, Wilfred Henry, Marcel Henry.
