Patricia Ann "Pat" Kelleher, age 91, of Clarksville, left this earth Wednesday, Sept. 29, 2021. She was born on St. Patty's Day, March 17, 1930, in Altus, to John Peter and Marie Elizabeth Bachman Marx.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by two husbands, Raymond Lensing and Daniel Kelleher; a daughter, Cheryl Lambert; two sisters, Anna Marie Stipskey and Catherine Thibideau; and her brother, Joe White.

Pat had three loving daughters, Monica Bond, Cheryl Lambert and Cathy Lensing; by her first husband, Raymond Lensing. After Raymond died at 38, Pat married Dan Kelleher and had three sons, Dennis, Kevin and Michael Kelleher; and a daughter, Mary Snizek.

Pat leaves 10 grandchildren, Scott (Pamie) Bond, Stephanie (Jessie) Taylor, Kelly (Ian) Robbins, David (Robin) Lambert, Billie-Ann (Daniel) Bruce, Dustin and David Kelleher, Hayden and Ali Kelleher and Rowan Snizek; seven great-grandchildren, Mikaela and Hanna Herrick, Liam Robbins, Mack Bond, Ashlyn Robinson, Dani Lambert and Ty Bruce; and a great-great-granddaughter, Charli Robinson.

Pat lived a long and full life raising her children, loving her family and the Catholic faith. One can understand, with seven children and an ever-growing family, she was an expert seamstress, knitter and crocheter. There were many birthdays, holidays and special events to be celebrated. She loved craft making, enjoyed singing and dancing. Pat had a fondness for travel and an occasional beer.

She loved flowers, but was more a giver than a taker. Her wish would be to give to others so they may benefit. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Alzheimer's Association, 11300 N. Rodney Parham Rd. Suite 205A, Little Rock, AR 72212

The funeral mass will be at 2 p.m. on Wednesday at St. Augustine Catholic Church in Dardanelle, with burial in St. Scholastica Cemetery in New Blaine next to Ray, and under the direction of Shinn Funeral Service of Russellville.
