Hohlstein, Patricia M.
Patricia M. Hohlstein, age 80, of Livingston, passed away Monday, May 9, 2022 at home surrounded by her loving family.
Pat was born to Marjorie Houff and William Fields on March 3, 1942 and enjoyed being raised by Henry and Phyllis Jorgenson on the farm in rural Mineral Point. She often told stories of all the mischief and adventures she had with her siblings there.
She graduated in 1959 from Linden High School where she was prom queen as well as a cheerleader. Shortly after graduation, she met the love of her life, John C. Hohlstein, and they were married on June 14, 1963. They spent many of their first years traveling together, while managing a chain of restaurants. They enjoyed time on the water in their houseboat with their children, family and friends - water skiing and fishing. Pat and John eventually landed in rural Rewey, where she was best known for her fantastic cooking and entertaining at the local watering holes. After retirement, she resided in rural Livingston. She enjoyed tending to her birds and flowers, while watching the animals frolicking from the deck. She also loved to read and do crossword puzzles. She had a passion for research and genealogy, which she worked on diligently for years. She always looked forward to spending time with family and friends. Patsy was genuinely kind, selfless, thoughtful, and sincerely cared about everyone. The love she had for the ones she loved was fierce and unwavering. Her bright smile would light up a room and make everyone feel welcome.
She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, and sons, Sean Hohlstein (infant) and Allen Elliott. Also welcoming Pat to heaven were her sisters, Murriell Morrissey, Shirley Jungbluth, Dorothy Jungbluth, Charleen Moran and Dianne Trainor as well as her older brothers, Art Jorgenson, Charlie (Snookie) Houff, and Michael Houff.
Patsy is survived by her children, Kimberly, Tammy, John (Kendra) and Paul (Karli) Hohlstein; grandchildren, Karissa, Paige, Rebecca, Jacob, Nicholas, Charli, Dylan, Trevor, and Aimee; 11 great-children, sisters Rita Jenkins and Midge Farkas; brothers, Darrell and Ron Jorgenson as well as many nieces, nephews and cousins that she loved dearly.
As much as she will be missed, her family takes comfort knowing that John and Pat are reunited for eternity.
A memorial service will be held at 1 p.m. on Sunday, May 15, 2022 at the Lulloff-Peterson-Houck Funeral Home in Dodgeville. Friends may call the funeral home from 11am until the time of service. A celebration of life will follow at Gracie's Point in Arthur, WI. The family will arrive in Arthur after a brief private family interment at East Side Cemetery.
