Patricia Kerr

February 9, 1930 — September 15, 2017

Patricia Anne Kerr, age 87, of Sheboygan, went to be with her Lord on Friday, September 15, 2017, while residing at Pine Haven Christian Communities. She was born February 9, 1930 to the late Elwood and Leola (nee MacIntyre) Plucker in Covington, NY and graduated from Pavilion Central High School in 1948. Following high school, she attended Geneseo Teachers College. Subsequently, she worked as a stewardess for North Central Airlines, rising to a supervisory role. While working for the airlines, she met a traveling engineer named Glen Gayle Kerr whom she married on June 8, 1957. After marriage, she devoted herself to being a homemaker and mother of three boys.

While living in Santa Clara, California she came to the Lord through the radio ministry of Dr. J. Vernon McGee. This began a lifelong commitment to church service and ministry. When they moved back to Wisconsin, both Patricia and Glen were devoted to sharing the good news of Jesus Christ and ministering to the practical needs of the disadvantaged in their community. This set a lifelong example for their sons as they grew up. Patricia and Glen served in their local church, Sheboygan Evangelical Free Church, as well as with the local Salvation Army. Patricia continued this work after the passing of Glen in 1998. She also volunteered at Sheboygan Memorial Hospital for many years.

Patricia is survived by her three sons: Kevin (Bonnie) Kerr of Crystal Lake, IL, Jon (Barb) Kerr of Sheboygan, Dan (Lisa) Kerr of Hawthorne, CA; ten grandchildren: Brenna, Aubrey, Alyssa, Anneliese, Alexander, Andrew, Alexis, Allison, Ava, and Nicholas. Further survived by two siblings: Hudson (Joyce) Plucker and Shirley Holmes and two great-grandchildren, Julia and Addisyn, and her best friend Vi Janke.

Patricia was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Glen, daughter-in-law Peggy (nee Wiegert) Kerr and her brother-in-law, Don Holmes.

Family and friends are invited to visit at Sheboygan Evangelical Free Church, 1710 N. 15th Street, Sheboygan, on Tuesday, September 19, 2017 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. The funeral service will follow at 11 a.m. with Pastor Jon MacDonald officiating. Patricia will be laid to rest at Sunrise Memorial Gardens.
