Patricia Ann Gruner
Nov. 4, 1945 - Sept. 19, 2013.
Patricia Gruner, 67, passed peacefully at her home in Ormond Beach, Florida on September 19, 2013 with her family at her side. A comforting hand of her mother likely guided her beyond. Patricia was born in Detroit, MI to George and Mildred Lemke. Her loving husband of 46 years, Walter Gruner, her two children, Deborah Kane and Michael Gruner, two grandchildren Ian and Isaac Kane, and her sister Sally Rosenquist survive her. Patty attended University of Michigan until her family moved to Fort Lauderdale, FL where she then attended Broward University and graduated with a degree in healthcare. She married her soul mate Walt in 1967. She worked as a medical assistant until they decided to have children and then she became a stay at home mother to lovingly care for and raise their two children. Patty always kept a beautiful home and was an amazing cook. Walt and Pat moved to Hendersonville, NC in 2006 after retiring to live in the mountains near their good friends. They lived there for 7 years only to move back to Ormond Beach to be with their children and grandchildren just a week before Patricia's passing. Her time here wasn't long enough for her family. Her beautiful smile, welcoming nature and warm hands will be missed by all those who knew her. Until we meet again, we will honor you: our loving mother and grandmother, devoted wife, wonderful sister, and best friend.
