Patricia Ann Warner Kubly BIRTH 18 March 1954 Mercy Hospital, Janesville, Rock County, Wisconsin, USA DEATH 04 August 2019 (aged 65) Bothell, Snohomish County, Washington, USA BURIAL 24 August 2019 Janesville, Rock County, Wisconsin, USA

Patricia Ann Warner Kubly was reunited in Heaven with her husband Gerald Allen Kubly on August 4th, 2019.

Born on March 18th, 1954, Patricia was raised in Janesville, WI, a child to William Frank Warner and Evelyn Mae Henning Warner.

Patricia was a gifted musician and singer, a lady of great intellect, and passionate in every venture she pursued. Of all her accomplishments, Patricia was most proud of her family; her husband Jerry, her son Aaron, her daughter Elizabeth Kubly Kihslinger, and her grandchildren, Freya and Brinya.

'Pat' was preceded in death by her husband, her brother William and her parents. Surviving are her brother Jon Warner and sister Geraldine Warner Kale.

Patricia graduated from Joseph A. Craig High School in Janesville, WI with honors in 1972. She then attended University of Wisconsin - Stout in Menomonie, Wisconsin and graduated with the accolade of 'Summa Cum Laude' (with the highest distinction) in the field of Child Development.

Patricia was successful at every position she took in her career, including Badgerland Harvestore, S.S.I. Technologies, Janesville Public Schools, Rock County Social Services and Seattle Genetics, a biotechnology firm.

Patricia was baptized at First Christian Church in Janesville and then a member of Church Of Christ, Roxbury Road, also in Janesville. She moved with her family to Bothell, Washington in the summer of 2000 and had maintained residence there. Pat was a devout Christian, often organizing and leading the choir in her service within her faith. Pat had many friends from coast to coast. She was a generous donor to the arts, KCTS Public Television, military veterans, Hopelink, Toys for Tots, and the Susan G. Komen 'Race For The Cure' Foundation's fight against breast cancer, which was the cause of her mother's passing.

Pat was a dedicated and devoted wife, a loving mother, and believed in traditional family values from being raised in that same environment. Pat's grandmother, Elizabeth Armstrong Warner, whom Pat's daughter was named after, and Pat's grandfather, William Clyde Warner, were very active in Janesville's foster care programs. Patricia's father and mother met as children through Pat's grandparents' fostering efforts, later to marry.

An avid Green Bay Packer fan, both Pat & Jerry were proud members and sponsors of the Northwest Packer Backer's Association in the Seattle area.

Aaron & Elizabeth, We were so sad to hear of Pat's passing. She was a great gift to our family. She and my mother spent a couple of weeks at our house in Cape Coral, FL and we had a wonderful time. She and mom (Virginia) loved the fresh seafood and watching the birds come in to roost during a boat trip to a rookery island. I'd love to send you some photos from that trip if you'd like to share your snail mail address. Peace be with you, Chris

For Pat's family and friends,
I am so sorry for your loss. I had the privilege of knowing and working with Pat for more than a decade at Seattle Genetics and was always impressed with her dedication, caring, and sense of justice. She cared that everyone was treated fairly and was not afraid to speak up when she saw something that she disagreed with. I was always impressed with her love for the Packers, all things Wisconsin, and especially her family! I know it's been difficult for her since she lost Jerry, and I hope that there is some comfort in knowing that they are together again.

I always enjoyed how creative and musical the Kubly family was. When I was a teenager and I would come over to the Kubly house and hang out with Aaron I would sing while Aaron played guitar. I wasn't confident, but Patricia being a great singer always encouraged me to do it. I had a lot of fun. She was a sweet lady.

I’ll always remember the playful “scares” we gave each other at Seattle Genetics. She got me good a few times and I would return the favor as I surprised her over her cubicle as she was typing away.

Patricia Ann was my older sister and we will all greatly miss her.

I told Pat we needed help at Franklin Gardens bowling alley for some bar maids during a State Tournament. I already knew Jerry, her future husband, as we were both certified coaches. Jerry helped tend bar during that tournament. And thus their story began.

I have known Pat for 63 years. She has been incredible. Our father passed in 1965, and our mother in 1982. Pat took on the role as head of our family.

Pat & I once sang a duet for the Cardiac Rehab Group at Mercy Hospital in Janesville, WI after Jerry had one of his heart surgeries. The song was "A Whole New World". Pat & Jerry now have a new world to explore together.

God Bless from Texas - Jon Warner

I was Pat's supervisor at Rock County when she ran our Volunteer Transportation program. She was an awesome worker who was always thinking of her volunteer drivers, never treating them as volunteers, but always valuable members of our work team. Pat and I were not only co-workers but friends and I will remember with fondness the Packer game that she, Jerry and I attended when the Pack beat the Seahawks. Pat will be missed but I find some comfort in knowing that she is again reunited with Jerry.

Rest in peace, dear soul.

I remember when aunt Pat was the instigator of an awesome water balloon fight at my parents 25th anniversary party! What a blast! She actually had us fill balloons up and stockpile them in a cooler.

I also remember being in her's and Uncle Jerry's wedding. Still have a picture of me in my flower girl dress.

Then there is the memory of her, Aaron and Elizabeth all performing at my first wedding. She sang so beautifully.

Such a wonderful soul. I was blessed to have Pat & Jerry looking over me when we all first moved out to WA. They were good to me even when I wasn't deserving of such kindness. I always wanted to get back out there to thank her. Such a bright star...

I met Pat through her late husband Jerry. He was my coworker and friend at Seattle Public Utilities. When he passed I stayed in touch with her. Occasionally helping out if she needed a had around the house or yard. She was always so kind and never asked for much. She helped our daughter each year during her annual fundraising for Campfire. She always felt so trapped out of place and time without Jerry. We are saddened by her sudden departure but hope she is reunited with the love of her life. Fairfarren Pat, you were a great, kind and carring person and will be missed by all.

Pat had such an amazing soul. She was one of the first people I met when I started at my job.
I always enjoyed delivering packages to her desk at work, because she never failed to greet me with a smile.
May you rest in peace Pat. ❤
