On November 27, 1951, she was united in marriage to Richard "Dick" McGinnis at First United Methodist Church in Algona. Together they raised four children, Sue, Mike, Jan, and Jeff. She was a great wife and mother. Pat lost her husband, Richard, in 2000.
Pat found joy in golfing, cross country skiing, knitting, sewing, and traveling. Many have fond memories of her always smiling and laughing. She was never known to say a bad thing about anyone. Pat had a deep rooted love for her family and friends.

To Sue, Mike, Jan, Jeff and extended families and friends, my heartfelt prayers and thoughts are with all of you during this time of loss. I remember Pat so fondly, What a wonderful and kind lady she was and always had her door open for anyone to stop in and say Hello! Her smile radiated and glowed with the love in her heart that she had for her friends and families and grandchildren. May She Rest In Peace. You have earned your wings Pat and join your beloved families and relatives in heaven. May your smile always shine and sparkle like the stars in that wonderful, lovely constellation in heaven forever.

Sorry for the loss of your mother...please accept my sympathy. Remember staying over with Jan and Pat was so nice. Always friendly and spoke when she saw me whether at church or in town.
Jeff, extending my sympathies to you on the loss of your mother.

Sorry for your loss. Lots of wonderful memories of Aunt Pat.
To Pat's family, my deepest sympathy and condolences on your loss of Pat, such a warm, kind and gentle lady. Ron always enjoyed talking with Pat and reminiscing about their adventures while in school in Algona - the school queen and the twin cousins who campaigned to promote her selection. She and Ron can now recall those "good times" together as Ron left this life on February 27, 2018, at the age of 82. We miss him dearly as I am sure you all will have the same feelings about the loss of your mother. May your memories of Pat be a blessing to the family. With much love and warm hugs for each of you.
Hazel Elbert and the Ron Elbert family.
