To Aunt Pat's Beloved Family,
I was so sorry to hear from my mom that she had passed away. Aunt Pat was such a sweet lady with a warm, loving smile everytime I saw her. I was always so glad to see her and catch up. She loved her family! She had a way of putting you at ease--she exuded God's peace. I know Big Dan truly enjoyed her company, along with Dorothy, as they made the many rounds to graduations and weddings. My thoughts are with you as you celebrate her life and adjust to life without her. She was a faithful, precious lady and so precious in His sight!

To the family of Pat Confer, we will always remember Pat as a wonderful neighbor and friend. She was always there with a loving smile and helping hand. Many fond memories of our kids making mud pies out by the cherry tree. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time.

Bev, Shari, Barb, Partick and Curt and families,
Through the years Aunt Pat was always a steady "rock" to the Confer family of cousins. Her gracious smile and "y'all come" welcoming nature were foundational to her wonderful spirit. Through all of the serious and "not so serious" talks and visits we shared, I always went away feeling uplifted and so glad to have been with her. She shared and advised without criticism. You were all so dear to her and she loved you more than you'll ever realize. Even in times of sadness and heartache, her faith in the Lord blessed us all and kept her reaching out to others. She was a great example of who I want to be when I "grow up." My thoughts and prayers will be with you all as you grieve this loss of your very dear Mom and Grandmother. And now, heaven seems even more welcoming with her waiting for us there...what a reunion!!! Love and blessings. Judy Affolder

I will always remember the fun we had working at the noodle factory. Pat always had the biggest heart and the best laugh. She will be missed .

My thoughts and prayers are with the family. I will never forget the extraordinary kindness she always showed to a rather lost and confused child. Heaven is singing a welcome to its newest angel.
