Patricia Thomas

Patricia Mae Thomas, 78, Pella, died unexpectedly Monday, July 13, 2015, at a Shawano hospital, surrounded by her family. She was born Nov. 16, 1936, in Two Rivers to the late William and Marion (Almy) Erickson.

Pat attended Gillett High School, graduating in 1954. She married Francis Thomas on Jan. 4, 1958, at St. Luke’s Church in Two Rivers.

She and her family were regulars on the cruise lines, traveling to exotic places and seeing the world. Pat’s family was her pride and joy. She cherished the time spent with her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
