Patricia Lou (Wesoloski) Olsen, 90, formerly of Menominee, Mi., passed away Sunday, Nov. 24, 2019 at the Luther Home in Marinette.
Born July 18, 1929 in Menominee, to John (Jack) and Sadie Mae (Bengtson) Wesoloski, she graduated from Menominee High School in 1947. On Nov. 12, 1977 she married Charles Olsen in Menominee and he preceded her in death on May 14, 2015.
A member of Holy Spirit Catholic Church, she loved people and was an energetic and popular bartender at the Menominee American Legion for over 30 years. With a love of music, she liked to dance and sing along to favorite songs. Her childhood nickname was "Patsy Lou" and she had a good sense of humor even in failing health. She was a talented decorator and could turn any house into a warm and comfortable home. She enjoyed traveling, with visits to family in Colorado and Minnesota, tours around the country with her husband, Charlie and a dream trip to Hawaii with friends.
She is survived by a daughter, Karen Loewecke of Menominee; a son, Carl (Cubby) (Nancy Moore) Loewecke, of Lino Lakes, Mn.; two grandchildren; two step-daughters, Mary (Dennis Kanka) Rankovich of Santa Fe, N.M. and Melissa Olsen of Germantown; nieces; Barbara (Joe) Lopez and Jill (Mike) Bondarchuk and their families in Colorado; a nephew, Brian (Tami) Wesoloski and his family in Utah; extended family; a sister-in-law, Shirley Wesoloski of Texas; the Moore and Rejman families of Minnesota and her second husband, Robert Tomek and his children.
In addition to her parents and husband Charles, she was preceded in death by a brother, Robert Wesoloski; a sister-in-law, Marie (Mimi) Wesoloski; a nephew, Robert Wesoloski, Jr., and her first husband, Carl Alvin Loewecke.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at a later date. Cadieu Funeral Home of Menominee is assisting the family. Donations are appreciated to the Emergency Rescue Squad, Inc. or to any foundation or individual that provides support and care to those that suffer from Alzheimer/Dementia.
