Obituary for Patsy D. Shull

Entered Eternal Life on Wednesday, October 31, 2018, at the age of 83. Beloved wife of the late John Shull for 58 years. Dear mother of John (Raymond) and Lori Shull, Kurt Schmidt. Cherished grandmother of Samantha, Adam, Rebecca (Chris), Jordan (Becky), Jana, Arynne, Rachel, Zachary (Donelle) and Max. Great-grandmother of Zoey, Owen, Silas, Piper and Caden. Patsy was preceded in death by her husband John, son Randy, Sue Schmidt, her parents Arthur and Lydia Willborn, her brothers Art, Bob and Jack Willborn, her sister Joyce Starck and her siblings-in-law Carl, Kernilla, Mary Ellen, Creed and Linda. Also survived by Curt, Carol, Ruth, nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

Patsy was born in Milwaukee, WI. She was the youngest of five children. In 1958 she attended a USO dance in Milwaukee, WI where she met her husband John. After telling her friends that night “I am going to marry that man” they married in 1959 after only three dates. She went on to stay at home and raise her three children. She ended up working in the insurance industry once the kids were in school.

She was a very active church member at Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church. Patsy sang in the choir and also enjoyed golfing, bowling, knitting and playing games with her family.

In 1984, she was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. She overcame a crippling outlook and defied all odds, living a full life beyond expectation. Being strong willed and determined she did not allow her disease to hold her back from any aspect, big or small, of her family’s and friends’ lives. Her presence alone filled each room she entered and everyone who knew her loved her.

After a year of struggling with the death of her husband and the progression of her disease, she died peacefully surrounded by family.
