Patricia L. Risner (nee Woodruff), age 77, of La Porte, Indiana, passed away on Wednesday, Oct. 13, 2021.

Patricia was born on July 5, 1944, in Michigan City, Indiana, to Louis and Dorothy (Crawford) Woodruff, who preceded her in death.

Patricia is survived by her children, Kenneth (Karen) Woodruff, Robin Risner and Timothy Risner, and step-daughter, Rhonda Caffrey; grandchildren, Nicole (Brett) Parry and Kimberly (Brant) Schmid; great-grandchildren, Madelyn, Mason, Lyla and Lilly; brothers, Dan and Ed Woodruff; sister-in-law, Renée Woodruff; many loving nieces and nephews; as well as special friend of the family, Joe Oganovich.

She was preceded in death by her loving husband, Bob; parents; brother, Richard Woodruff; and sisters, Nancy Childers and Susan Woodruff.

Patricia loved preparing meals and serving the students of Michigan City High School (Rogers) for 38 years, making lasting friendships along the way. She was an avid crafter who loved sewing, painting ceramics, crocheting clothes and doilies, needle point and setting up at craft shows.

Pat loved her family first and foremost and she selflessly dedicated her life to caring for her son, Timothy. She spent endless hours attending her grandbabies' games and functions, and enjoyed every minute of it. Pat will be deeply missed by everyone who knew her.

Friends are invited to meet with the family on Monday, Oct. 18, 2021, from noon until the time of service at 2:30 p.m. at Geisen-Carlisle Funeral Home, 613 Washington St., Michigan City, IN, 46360. Burial will follow at Springville Cemetery.
