Patricia Ann "Pat" Miner, age 76, of Edgewater, died Sunday, July 18, 2010. She was born May 18, 1934 to the late Edward W. Meyer and his wife, Monica Stilowski Meyer at Meyer's Fish Trap Lodge in Boulder Junction, Wisconsin. Her husband, Doral E. Miner preceded her in death in 1986. "Pat", as she was known by her friends, family and extended family, moved to the area in 1995. She was a master tax advisor for H&R Block and an enrolled agent with the IRS. Not being one to sit around, Pat was also a service merchandiser for American Greeting cards and CVS. Pat and her husband managed the DeKalb Taylor Municipal Airport, DeKalb, Illinois from 1972-1978; was a Cub Scout den mother and Brownie leader, loved the beach and the woods, fishing, traveling and Disney World. Pat was known as the neighborhood "Mom" and loved to cook for her extended "family". Pat was taken from us so suddenly that many of her family and friends were not aware of how sick she really was. Her last wish was to say "Goodbye" to everyone and "Pass on the love!" At the time of her death, she was surrounded by her children, Mike, Mark, Terri and Tammy; and two of her grandsons, Mark Farris and Justin Miner. Survivors include two sons, Michael E. Miner (Chris) of Sycamore, Illinois and Mark E. Miner of Edgewater; two daughters, Theresa A. Farris (Tom, Sr.) of Scotch Grove, Iowa and Tamara M. Corso (Nick) of Algonquin, Illinois; ten grandchildren, Mark Farris (Mitzi) of Nashville, Tennessee, Justin Miner of DeKalb, Brandon Harold (Kari) of Sycamore, Angel, Thomas, Jr. and Andrea Farris of Scotch Grove, Matthew Thorsen of Washington, D.C., Brittany Thorsen of Algonquin, Dave Sarver (Stephanie) of DeKalb, and Rachel Sarver of Sycamore; five great-grandchildren, Reagan, Tinley, Hunter and Maddyn Harold and Jordyn Siebold, all of Sycamore; beloved sister, Annette (Ann) Meyer-Cleveland of Minocqua, Wisconsin and her children David, Kathy, Jeff and Chris and their families; sister-in-law, Arneta Reining (John) of Pecatonica, Illinois and her children John and Doral and their families; one aunt, Margaret Stilowski of Boulder Junction and her family. A memorial service will be celebrated at 3:00 p.m. Friday, July 30, 2010 at Settle-Wilder's New Smyrna Beach chapel, with Chaplain Mark Spivey, Hospice of Volusia/Flagler, officiating.
