Patricia Broderick Shea passed away peacefully November 14, 2013, at the age of 90 years at Oakwood Manor, Oshkosh comforted by her children and grandchildren.

Pat married Phillip E. Shea on April 6, 1942, at St. Peter Catholic Church, Oshkosh and celebrated more than 63 years of marriage. The Shea family lived in Elo and was part of that close community until recent years.

Pat was blessed with boundless energy, a great intellect, and an indomitable spirit. She was an active and dedicated member of the community offering her talents in many ways. Those who truly knew her such as her Smear Club of 69 years and Bridge Club of 63 years will remember her true caring and kindness for others and understand the sadness at her passing.

Pat is also survived by 14 great-grandchildren, her sister, Margaret Johnson; and sisters-in-law, Phyllis Shea and Pat Broderick.

She was preceded in death by her husband Phil, her parents, two brothers, five sisters, four brothers-in-law, and two sisters-in-law.
