Patricia “Pat” S. Schmeiser, age 81, of the Town of Molitor, WI, was greeted by God into eternal life on Monday, September 5, 2022, after a lengthy fight with cancer.
Pat was born in Whittlesey, WI, on August 16, 1941, to Harold and Phyllis (Micklo) Schmoldt. She was the oldest of six children. Pat married Jerry Schmeiser on June 15, 1963, at the Holy Rosary Church in Medford, WI.
Pat attended the Whittlesey School, graduated from the Medford High School, and attended the Taylor County Teachers’ College. She taught in Outagamie County before her marriage. Pat and Jerry owned a dairy farm in the Town of Molitor from 1969 to 1990 when their son, Jeff, purchased it from them. They continued to reside
at the farm and work with Jeff and his family.
In addition to helping run the family farm, she worked various jobs some of which included Copps IGA and Kmart. She enjoyed all of her many jobs, but loved teaching the most. She returned to work as a teacher’s aide for the Holy Rosary School until her retirement at age 75. Pat was never idle. She enjoyed fishing, gardening, sewing,
ceramics, and other craft projects. She volunteered as a 4H project leader for over 30 years and was active in the Taylor County Fair for many years. Pat’s family meant everything to her and she will be dearly missed.
Survivors include her husband of 59 years, Jerry Schmeiser;
her children, Jeff (Laura) Schmeiser, and Jack (Jackie) Schmeiser; and her mother, Phyllis Schmoldt. Pat is further survived by her grandchildren, April, James, Angela (Ryan), Ashley, Colleen, and McKensee; her great-grandchild, Camryn; her five siblings; and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her father, Harold and her mother-in-law, Rose Schmeiser.
The funeral mass will take place on Saturday, September 10, 2022, at 10:30 AM, at the Holy Rosary Catholic Church in Medford. Fr. Patrick McConnell will officiate. The family will receive friends for
