Welcome to the memorial page for

Patricia Ann Oest

April 12, 1947 ~ September 29, 2017 (age 70)

Heaven threw open its pearly gates and welcomed Patricia home on September 29th where she was reunited with her parents Frank & Angeline Stellow and other family & friends.
She was greatly loved by and will be greatly missed by her daughter Angie (Todd) Rickner and son Dale (Tamara) Oest; her grandchildren & great-grandchildren Patricia (Kevin) Vance
(David, Kevin Jr); Todd Jr (Ashley) Rickner (Audrey, Sophia); Ryan Rickner, Mea Oest, and Nathan Oest;  her sister, Loretta Hovinga, and life-long treasured friends Carol & Mike;
a host of nieces, nephews, and friends she had met along the way, as she had never met a stranger!
Pat was a selfless, loving, giving person with a laughter as big as her heart! She enjoyed car rides, drive-ins, shopping, music, animals, children and many other simple pleasures in life. Mainly she loved spending time with her family even if it was on the phone.
We would like to send a special thanks to her caregiver & friend Sandy who went above and beyond thru fun, and hard times of sickness, all of her other caregivers, Fresenius Dialysis, Faith Hospice, and the wonderful St Marys staff on 3 Lacks. You are all invaluable!!!
Per her wishes of not having a traditional funeral her family will have an "After-Party" at a later date to celebrate this strong and awesome woman's life!
