My grandma, my mentor was an amazing woman in my life. Smart, funny, and cute. When I was small she would take me to the public pool and buy me ice cream sandwiches. We would go to the park and feed the ducks. I remember having Fruit Loops and bacon for breakfast and laying on the floor watching "The Price is Right" when I would visit for a month every summer. We would have competitions to see who had the longest french fry. Bittersweet memories. She was an unbelievable great-grandma as well, very patient. She will be missed deeply. (Laura Powers)

A large part of my grandma's life was dedicated to helping others. She was sober for 36 years. Throughout that time, she helped countless people who struggled with alcoholism and addiction; continuing to sponsor others all the way up until her passing. She was a beacon of light and hope to her friends and family and helped pave the way for some of her loved ones to achieve sobriety! (Missy Krohn)

Grandma Pat "Papa pat" was the center of our family. I will never forget how much she loved her family, she never missed a holiday, a birthday, or any other reason to get together. She was the most amazing mother, grandma, great-grandma, and friend to so many. "Papa Pat" was greatly loved throughout her life and she will be greatly missed now. (Laura Krohn)

My grandma was one of the most amazing women I've ever met. Fiercely loyal to her family, incredibly smart, and unbelievably compassionate, she had an immense impact on every member of the Krohn family and she will never be forgotten. Especially the smarties! We love you, grandma! (Scott Krohn)

Grandma Pat (or as my kids called her, Big Grandma) was one of the most amazing women I've ever known. She loved her family with all she had and we loved her back just as much. She had the most wonderful sense of humor, was always fair, and gave the best advice. She will be forever missed and cherished. Heaven gained a beautiful soul and now we have another guardian angel looking over us. Until we meet again. (Wayne and Candi Reese)
