Patricia Ann Kratochwill Lindlauf, of Glastonbury was born, May 30, 1965, in Detroit, Michigan. Patricia, known as Patty by her friends and family, graduated from Our Lady Star of the Sea High School in 1983. She matriculated at the University of Michigan and received her baccalaureate degree in Political Science in 1987. She attended law school at the University of Detroit, receiving her Juris Doctor degree in 1990. After passing the Bar Exam in the state of Michigan, she moved to Connecticut in 1991, and passed the Connecticut Bar Exam. Patty worked for several law firms before accepting a position with the New Britain Superior Court as the Temporary Assistant Clerk in May 1992. Patty was appointed as a permanent employee for the Court, serving as the Caseflow Coordinator from July 1993, until November 1998. In 1998, she was appointed by the Court as the Deputy Chief Clerk for Judicial District Matters for the New Britain and Bristol Courts. In this role, Patty was responsible for assisting in the daily operations of the Judicial District Chief Clerk's Office in accordance with established Court operations, policies, and procedures. Patty was a phenomenal cook, and she frequently and openly shared her recipes with family and friends. She enjoyed summers on Nantucket with her children, spending time with friends and family, and quiet nights with a good fire in the fireplace. She will be remembered for her searing intellect, her wicked sense of humor, and her unyielding compassion. She loved nothing more than spending time with her children, good conversation with friends and a glass of wine. She is survived by her three children, William, Maire and Edward Lindlauf all of Glastonbury, her three brothers, Michael Kratochwill and his wife Jennifer of Needham, MA , Paul Kratochwill and his wife Deirdre of East Grand Rapids, MI, and Eric Kratochwill and his wife Estelle of Ann Arbor, MI and her three nephews, Thomas, John and Owen Kratochwill all of Ann Arbor, MI.

Dear Lindlauf and Kratochwill families,
I am so sorry for your loss. Patty was a wonderful person. I worked with her at the court since she started. She was not only my supervisor but also my friend. I will miss her smile, her kindness and compassion.
May you keep your memories of her close to your heart and she will always be with you.
Wishing you peace, comfort and strength in the days ahead.
Yvonne Gerardi
