PATRICIA "PAT" VAN LEUVEN
Einan's at Sunset
Patricia "Pat" Van Leuven passed away peacefully on January 17, 2017 surrounded by her family at home in Richland, Washington. She was welcomed into the loving arms of her parents on February 12, 1947. Pat was preceded in death by her sweet baby Amy Christine and her parents Kenneth and Glenda Skolrud, and her nephew Michael King. She is survived by her beloved husband David, her loving sons Daniel (fiancée Crystal Rehling), David, and Matthew (wife Danielle), and Richelle (mother of grandchildren Cody and Nicole). She was a fun-loving Grandma to Cody (wife Alicia), Nicole (husband Mathew Crites), Lydia and Jackson and adoring Great Grandma to Jaron, Ryan, Jaysen, Bruce, and Isabella. She was a wonderful sister to Judi King, Mike Skolrud, Nancy Kares and Teresa Keelty. Patricia ("Patsy" in her younger days) was a high energy hardworking person always busy and engaging from her early years of playing dress-up, to making mud pies and as a high school cheerleader. In high school she met the love of her life and began to fulfill her dreams of being a GREAT wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother. Always involved with her church families she had a deep love of the Lord. She embraced a lifetime of volunteering and giving to others in just about every capacity one could imagine. When she wasn't helping others she had an amazing talent for envisioning and creating beautiful gardens with rainbows of colorful flowers where she found complete joy in watching sunsets. Her family and friends were always welcomed into a gracious home and treated to her delicious cooking. She was a wonderful combination of lacey and delicate to as strong a lady as one will ever know. Pat's strength and perseverance in her battle with leukemia was truly brave and inspirational and a gift to all who knew her. She will always live in the hearts of all that knew and loved her.
