In her life she cherished a son Edward Lee Kastrosky, a daughter Lisa Lynn (Vodak), and son-in-law Matthew Vodak. She felt blessed with 5 amazing grandchildren. She found unique ways of spending time with them and making it a special memory that each would treasure. The eldest granddaughter Brittney Elaine spent countless hours with Grammy, and they started Tea & Crumpets that all of the grandchildren would enjoy. Brittney shared Patty’s love of holidays– especially Halloween–and made many enjoyable memories and creations together. Brett and Patty shared a love of movies and were their own Siskel & Ebert. Ryan would wow her daily with his knowledge and vocabulary; he loved sharing his interests with her. Kiera remains her little firecracker. Patty enjoyed Kiera’s sweetness and love of fashion and fingernails. Kylee loved spending holidays with Grammy; she shared many special times with her and looked forward to her new “Grammy Jammies” every Christmas.

Four great grandchildren blessed her days, and she always needed her Grammy Hugs & Kisses. Jax is Grammy’s special Hugger. He looked forward to going to her house for their one-on-one time together, coloring and drawing pictures. Van was her Mr. Rough-and-Tumble guy. He impressed her with his sweet hockey moves. Mia Elaine–her namesake–and special sweet baby girl enjoyed snuggling, making her smile, and showing her dimples. She was the “Sunshine of her life.” Riley is the latest addition to the family. Patty adored another new baby to love and looked forward to watching him grow up with his cousins. All these little people gave her great joy and happiness as she loved each unconditionally.

Patty’s Aunt Donna greatly influenced her as they spent much time together. She shared a lot of laughs with her favorite niece, Sally. Miles may have been between them, but the friendship and fun will always remain.

Patty loved crafting. She could create something out of anything. She enjoyed making personalized gifts for friends and family or creating cards and banners for special occasions. She relished her crafting times with her dear friends Jonelle and Patty as well as just going along for the ride. Patty always shared a kind word and enjoyed being surrounded by family, watching the kids play outside, and sipping wine in the sun. She remains a selfless mother–always ready to lend an ear to listen, share a word of encouragement, offer an unbelievable sense of understanding, or give a smile and a hug. She touched so many lives and will hold a special place in our hearts forever.

A Celebration of Life potluck will be held for her on Sunday, September 3, at 12 o’clock, at Ochsner Park Shelter Baraboo, WI. The Redlin Funeral home is assisting the family with arrangements.

“The reality is that you will grieve forever. You will not get over the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it. You will heal and you will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again, but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same, nor would you want to.”—Elisabeth Kubler-Ross.

“PEACE”
