In loving memory of Patricia R. Mayer, aka Patty, Ms. M, Ms. Meringue.
She is preceded in death by grandparents Rudolph and Gladys Janda, biological father Daale Pray Jones, mother and father John and Harriett Melgin.
Leaves behind daughter Tricia Mayer Bowden (Adam) New Buffalo, Michigan, sister Wendy Melgin Pierard (Kevin) Santa Fe, New Mexico, daughter Lisa Krebs (Chris) grandsons Conner and Carter Krebs, Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin, and many loved cousins all over the country and the world.
Patty has always been passionate about travel. She had a bucket list and did her best to see quite a bit.
Singapore was always her favorite. She says you haven't lived until you ate chili crab or saw the Singapore zoo and finished your trip with a Singapore Sling.
She loved talking to interesting people and finding out their stories. Sometimes tagging along and making their adventures hers as well.
But music was her passion. She followed her friends to every road house, bar, gin joint or speakeasy they were playing.
You could not have dragged her out. Even having band practice in her living room because someone's girlfriend was mad at them or the space they used was taken.
Patty has had many jobs throughout her life and the people who worked with her were always considered to be family.
She did not believe that family had to be defined by blood alone. Everyone who met and worked with her enjoyed her infectious laugh, sarcastic humor and her friendship. She will be missed.
A Celebration of Life Gathering will be held on Saturday, August 7, 2021 at Sommerfeld Chapel in New Buffalo, Michigan, from 12-3 pm EST.
Sharing of memories will be at 3 pm. Reception to follow which will be announced through Sommerfeld Chapel at www.sommerfeldchapel.com where you can also leave a message of condolence for the family.
