Patricia Lou Johnson
Patricia Lou Johnson, age 73, passed away Thursday March 19, 2020 at St. John’s on the Lake in Milwaukee. Patricia was born in Racine, WI, on September 15, 1946, daughter of the late Harry and Frieda (nee: Gerber) Kiedrowski.
Patricia graduated from Racine Lutheran High School “Class of 1964”. On July 20, 1966 at St. John’s Lutheran Church, she was united in marriage to Gerald N. Johnson, who preceded her in death in 1997. Pat was employed with St. Luke’s Hospital Racine for over ten years until her daughter Jacqueline was born. That is when the fun and real work began. Pat and Jerry loved their time raising their two daughters, Kimberly and Jacqueline. Pat will be remembered fondly for her love of their family trips to St. Germain, her many parakeets through the years, all named “Dicky”, her sense of humor and her fine collection of Jello molds.
Pat will be dearly missed by her daughters, Kimberly (Tony) Booth of Glendale, Jacqueline (Brian) Gregor of Milwaukee; grandchildren, Sean, Austin and Dylan Cramer, Liam and Colin Gregor, all of Milwaukee; brothers-in-law and sister-in-law, James Johnson of Madison, Donald Johnson of Madison, Nancy Droysen of Racine; nephew, Charles Freidmund; niece, Kelly Droysen; other relatives and friends. In addition to her parents and husband, Pat was also preceded in death by her sister, Betty (Otto) Freidmund; sister-in-law, Eileen Johnson.
Private family services will be held with interment at West Lawn Memorial Park.
The family extends a special thank you for all of the love and support from the employees at St. John’s By The Lake.
