Heaven has another angel .My condolences to the Patzwaldt family. She was my favorite nursing instructor. She was tough,but,she also made it fun to learn. I had the privilege of being in class with her for 2 years. Mrs. Patzwaldt was a delightful person who enjoyed life to the fullest. RIP. You will be greatly missed.

Dear family...I can't imagine your grief for I feel the world is a little darker now without her. She was my teacher at the Skill Center but more importantly, my mentor and my "second mom". When I was 16 and wanted to be a doctor yet my family urged me to "just be a nurse", she encouraged me to reach my dreams! She guided me in the very wise decision to complete my practical nurse training instead of going to college right after high school graduation. She wrote reference letters for me to get into medical school and later a reference letter for me to get my NC license by the medical board. She was there at my graduation party from medical school and we kept in touch with Christmas cards. She rejoiced in my decision to give up my practice for a short time and stay home/homeschool my boys. Now I have returned to work in the Hospice and Palliative care field and know that the nurse she helped form in me is coming out in this doctor as I witness the final stages of life daily. I am praying for your comfort as I celebrate her remarkable life and joy over knowing she is happy in Heaven...

So very sorry for your loss of a great woman. She was my instructor at the bay arenac skill center when I was 17. She was the beginning foundation of my nursing career and whenever I think of her I smile. She was a fantastic person who taught me how to truly care for my patients as if they were my family. She was a gift from God to all of us students showing us how to become proper Nurses. I hope it comforts you knowing how much love and knowledge she gave to others in her lifetime.

My wife and I both had the honor and pleasure of teaching with Shirley at the Bay Arenac Skill Center. She was one of the most professional, kindest and respectful teachers to ever grace the halls of our facility. Just a truly beautiful lady inside and out. RIP Shirley and you will be truly missed by all who knew you.
