Patricia was born Aug. 25, 1931, on a farm north of Fullerton to August and Lena (Igo) Counts. She was the youngest of three children. Pat graduated from Fullerton High School and later earned a degree in business. She worked at Morris Press in Kearney for several years before retiring.
Pat enjoyed spending time with family, especially her great-grandchildren. She always said Brylie and Rowan brought her so much joy in her life. She also enjoyed crocheting, baking, having coffee and doughnuts with her friends, teaching her children and grandchildren the secret family recipes and gardening.
