Patricia D. Wollenberg, 94, of Manchester, died Monday, Oct. 29, 2018, at Atria Senior Living in Glastonbury.

Born in Unionville, she was the daughter of the late Andrew and Mary (Revak) Dublac. She was one of 11 children and was fond of saying she was the last "bird on the wire" after all of her siblings had passed. Pat served her country as a U.S. Coast Guard SPAR in World War II and left the service to raise her family with her husband, Christopher H. Wollenberg Jr. She raised her eight children in Manchester and made her living as a hairdresser at her home salon, Patricia's Salon of Beauty. Pat loved spending time with family, especially the babies. She loved to work in her gardens and cook, making her famous Christmas cookies, pies, and relish for friends and family far and wide. It was how she showed love. She was a devoted mother, always there to lend a hand, pick up a paintbrush or shovel and get the job done!

She is survived by her children, Susan Hayes and companion, Donald McLaughlin, of Manchester, David Wollenberg of Hopkinton, Rhode Island, Petrina Kleinschmidt and husband, Michael, of Marlborough, Robin Wollenberg and wife, Regina, of Twisp, Washington, Timothy Wollenberg and wife, Brenda, of Bolton, Kenneth Wollenberg and wife, Yvette, of Hopkinton, Rhode Island; her grandchildren Chris IV, Kevin, Matt, Mary (Katie), Lindsay, Kora, Andy, Liz, Brian, Sara, Tim, Justin, Jennifer, Dean, Nicky, and Jason; and her great-grandchildren, Marion, Chris V, Owen, Maya, Grace, Ella, Taylor, Ben, Griffin, Olivia, Luke, Charlotte, Ben, Hannah, Jacob, Cat, Bodhi, Marek, Mason, Maddox, Zachary, Maddy, Autumn, Ryleigh, Jaxson, and Harrison. She is also survived by her daughters-in-law, Faye Wollenberg and Sally Wollenberg. She was predeceased by her sons, Christopher Wollenberg III, and Jonathan Wollenberg; and daughter-in-law, Nancy Wollenberg.

Patricia's family would like to offer a special note of thanks to the staff at The Atria/Brookdale and Masonicare Hospice for their comfort and care.
