Patricia “Pat” Ann Somnis

Patricia was born on January 17, 1934, in Okeene, OK, to Harry and Evelyn (Blakely) Weisner. At a young age, Patricia’s family moved to the Minneapolis area. She attended school and later met the love of her life, Roland. On January 31, 1959, they were wed in Hopkins, MN. In 1970 Roland and Pat settled down in Conger, MN where they raised their four children, Jody, Michael, Robert, and Kevin.

Pat was a feisty woman who was devoted to her family. She enjoyed reading, watching western movies, crocheting, knitting, crossword puzzles, canning and baking; she was the best cook! Her favorite moments were those spent with her family. Friday evenings were set aside for family outings that included a cold beverage and a game of pool.
