THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Patricia Patty Robenhorst, 61, of Pound passed away on Thursday, Jan. 2 at St. Marys Hospital, Green Bay surrounded by her family. Her faith led her through her battle with cancer.
Born April 18, 1952 to Martha (Kardoskee) Sokol and the late Paul Sokol, Sr., she was a graduate of Coleman High School. A bus driver for the Coleman School District, her hard work and dedication was an inspiration to many.
Her love for others was constant, tending to needs of others before her own, with her smile and laughter being infectious that followed her wherever she went. She enjoyed volunteering for the Brazeau Rescue Squad with her special friend, Sue Kanack. Her lifelong wish to visit Hawaii was fulfilled in July 2012 with her sister Karen. It was a vacation filled with love and laughter during her courageous cancer battle.
She is survived by her husband, Richard; her mother, Martha Sokol, Pound; mother-in-law, Jean Robenhorst, Suring; two brothers, Paul (Sandy) Sokol, Jr. and Roger Sokol, both of Coleman; three sisters, Susan (Mike) Lesperance and Lisa (Robert) James, both of Coleman and Karen (Jeff) Tremel, Green Bay; two brothers-in-law, Jim Robenhorst, Suring and Ray (Phylis) Robenhorst, Coleman; many nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews and special friends.
She was preceded in death by her father, Paul Sokol, Sr. and father-in-law, Herbert Robenhorst.
The family greeted relatives and friends Saturday, Jan. 4 at Rhodes-Charapata Funeral Home, Coleman from 3 p.m. until time of a Memorial Service at 6 p.m. Rev. Mark Kostreva officiated with burial at First Baptist Cemetery, Pound.
