Obituary Condolences

iconLORBECK, PAT R. Born Patsy Ruth Erdmann on February 16, 1930, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Pat resided in Wauwatosa, Elm Grove and Brookfield, Wisconsin before relocating in 1978 to live in La Jolla and San Diego, California, for the remainder of her life. Pat left this world on October 2, 2012, at Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla, to be with Our Lord. Pat's husband Clifford D. Lorbeck; her cherished pets; brother-in-law Arthur Isleb; niece Nancy Isleb; parents Walter Louis Gustav and Emilie Eleanor (nee Schneiker) Erdmann; and her grandparents John and Katherine (nee Oberleitner) Schneiker, and Emil and Martha (nee Brach) Erdmann, preceded her in death. Left to mourn her are her daughters Linda L. McCarthy and Lisa Liebert; son-in-law Michael Liebert; treasured "granddogs" Esme, Sheba and Tristan; granddaughter Linda M. McCarthy; great granddaughters Xochitl and Maya Gonzalez McCarthy and Annalisa Ortiz; sister Betty Isleb; lifelong friend Marilyn Peglow (Robert); a nephew and niece; cousins; grandnieces; and the many whose lives Pat touched with her loving and selfless kindness, caring and charity. A private funeral mass was held at Our Lady Queen of Angels Catholic Church, Newport Beach, CA, on Saturday, October 13, 2012. Pat's earthly place of rest will be Christ Cathedral Memorial Gardens, Garden Grove, CA. Donations of time and/or treasure to the San Diego Humane Society or to any no-kill animal shelter or wolf rescue would honour Pat's deep love and concern for animals, especially those homeless and/or suffering. "How small a part of time they share, That are so wondrous sweet and fair." Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her. May she, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
