She is survived by her loving and devoted husband of 53 years, Dennis. Beloved mom of Kevin (Mary) Murack and Jenna Murack. Proud and doting grandmother of Marin and Izzy Murack. Dear sister of Ruth Ann (the late William, Sr.) Penzey, Lamar (Ann) Burns, the late James (Helen) Petscher and sister-in-law of Donna Murack and Michael (Barbara) Murack.

Although Patty only lived a block away, I did not get to know Pat until our girls were in baton twirling. For years we shared rides to practices and contests. We knew our girls’ routines almost better than they did. We knew every Sousa march.” Pretty free hand, point toes, spin faster” we yelled. We visited the Notre Dame University with the girls. The girls participated in corps and we worked the Bingos. This Saturday our neighborhood hosts the annual block party and Pat will be deeply missed. She really enjoyed coming to the Lodge and catching up with neighbors. I consider myself blessed to have Pat as a friend.

Pat Murack was my greatly loved Auntie. I hope everyone has one of these magical ladies in their lives. When we were young, she would baby sit for us on occasion. Yet we never thought of her as a baby sitter, as she would plan our time together with such care that we wished out parents would leave us with her more often! We did wonderful fun crafts, had delicious snacks and got to stay up late. In the morning she would bake fresh cinnamon rolls, what a treat. When she started dating my Uncle Dennis, who she eventually married, we thought they were just like a glamorous Hollywood movie star couple. One time there was a street sign on our block that was bent at a 45 degree angle. My Gram said, oh that, Dennis is teaching your Aunt Patsy how to drive! I will miss my Auntie terribly, but I know how lucky I am to have had this amazing lady in my life.
