On Thursday February 25, 2021 Patricia V. Lorenz (nee Freisleben) of Waukesha was called Home to be with the Lord. Pat was born on April 16, 1937 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the daughter of Edmund and Alice Freisleben. She married Howard Lorenz in 1966. Pat worked as a sales associate for Marshall Field’s, later Macy’s for over 20 years. Pat’s greatest love was the love she had for her family. She was very involved with the Women’s Bible Study at Bridge Church in Waukesha and had many special friendships there. She also spent much of her time in retirement volunteering for organizations such as Safe Babes Healthy Families and at the nursery at Bridge Church in Waukesha. Pat was a long time Green Bay Packer fan along with being a season ticket holder, and was even a scorekeeper for the PGA tour when they came to town.

We found a hand written note by our mom which we wanted to share, this is a quote by Kay Warren: “Joy is the settled assurance that God is in control of all the details of my life, the quiet confidence that ultimately everything is going to be all right, and the determined choice to praise God in all things”.
