She was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 46 years, Thomas M. Oberle, her parents Ronald and Alvina Sullivan, sister-in-law, Mary Sullivan, brother James Sullivan, brothers -in-law, Gary Roberts, Anthony Oberle and Richard Oberle. Born March 6, 1931, the eldest of four children to Ronald and Alvina Sullivan in Le Center, MN, Pat spent her young years in the communities of Madison Lake, Kasota and St. Peter, MN. She attended John Ireland Catholic School, St. Peter High School and Mankato State University. She taught elementary education briefly in Bricelyn, MN. After her marriage to Thomas on June 13, 1953, the couple moved to Ames, Iowa where Pat taught in Kola, IA. The couple later returned to MN and resided first on St. Paul's east side, West St. Paul and later Mendota Heights. She devoted her life to parish work at St. Pascal's, St. Joseph's and later as president of the Council of Catholic Women. She and Thomas were avid travelers including journeys to Peru, Columbia, Uruguay and Botswana as well as across the US. They both shared a commitment to volunteerism. After her husband's death in 1999, Pat relocated to Eagan and Green Valley, AZ. Pat lived a rich and full life - filled with love for her family and devotion to her Catholic faith. She had a strong belief in education. She had many hobbies and interests including quilting, bridge, genealogy, reading - she was in 3 book clubs - and history. She loved her position as guide at the Henry Sibley House in Mendota and at the Spanish Mission in Tumacacora, AZ.
