Patsy Mildred Orlowski

Patsy Mildred Orlowski, age 78, of Clinton passed away Friday, Sept. 15, 2017 at her home surrounded by her loving family.  Patsy was born on February 14, 1939 in Morrisville, Mo., to William and Sarah Helen (Painter) Ryan. On November 19, 1976 she married David Paul Orlowski in Ann Arbor, Mich., and he survives.

Patsy was a member of St. Dominic Catholic Church in Clinton. She proudly served her country in the United States Navy. Patsy worked for the United States Postal Service and spent most of her life caring for her family. Her greatest passion in life was being with her family. She loved going to her grandchildrens’ events, traveling and finding shells on the beach. Patsy also loved taking walks, tending to her flowers and playing bingo.

Patsy was a loving wife, mother and grandmother whose love was unconditional. Her bright blue eyes and smile made those around her feel her love.

She was preceded in death by her parents, three sisters, one brother and her son, Tom.

In addition to her husband, David, she is survived by her son, Brian (Stephanie) Lee of Atlanta, Ga.; daughters, Stacy Orlowski of Clinton, Tracy (Jeff) Mercy of Tecumseh and Katrina Orlowski of Clinton; eight grandchildren and 11 brothers and sisters.

In honoring Patsy’s wishes, cremation has taken place and there will be a funeral mass at a later date.
