Obituary for Patricia A. Keel

December 27, 1932 - May 28, 2020
Beaver Dam, Wisconsin | Age 87


Patricia A. Keel, 87, of Beaver Dam and formerly of Princeton, passed away peacefully on Thursday, May 28, 2020 at the Beaver Dam Assisted Living Facility.

She was born on December 27, 1932, the daughter of Stanley and Ruth (Hammer) Schmidt. Patricia married her lifelong companion Carl H. Keel on June 18, 1949 at St. Michael's Catholic Church in Beaver Dam, WI.

After retirement from Beaver Specialties, she loved having the opportunity to travel extensively for numerous vacations. Patricia was an active member of St. John's Catholic Church in Princeton where she served as a volunteer for the ladies auxiliary. She spent endless hours in her gardens and being creative with crafts and projects. There was no project too big! One of her favorite pastimes was spending time watching her grandchildren at their many sport activities. Her biggest thrill every morning was sharing a cup of tea with Carl and enjoying the view of the Fox River.

She will lovingly be remembered by her four daughters; Kathy (Victor) Sunderland, Linda (Dan) Napralla, Cindy (Donn) Duerst, Mary Jo (Scott) Soldner, and daughter-in-law, Rachel Longseth; 11 grandchildren; 26 great grandchildren; 3 great-great grandchildren. Pat will also be remembered fondly by brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews and friends.

Patricia was preceded in death by her husband Carl in 2019, her son Douglas Keel, parents, brothers; Lester, Robert, Bernard and Eugene Schmidt; brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law.

Pat's family would like to thank the staff at the Beaver Dam Assisted Living for the loving care she received during the last 7 months. We'd also like to thank Dr. Rentmeester and his team for many years of great medical care and for being her favorite physician.

Funeral services for Patricia will be held at a later date. Details will be published when available.
