Patricia "Pat" A. Verhelst

 

When we are called to part, it gives us inward pain, but we will still be joined in heart and hope to meet again. 

Patricia “Pat” A. Verhelst, age 73, of Sheboygan passed away on Sunday, January 15, 2023, at Sharon S. Richardson Community Hospice.

She was born on February 2, 1949, in Sheboygan to the late Walter and Elsie (Schlegel) Meyer.  She graduated from North High School in 1967.  She was united in marriage to Thomas C. Klemme and together they had two daughters, Kelly and Tracy.  On September 10, 1999, Pat was united in marriage to Philip Verhelst.  He preceded her in death on February 10, 2010.

Pat enjoyed gardening, cooking, baking, scrapbooking, sewing and dancing the night away.  She was known for her exquisite cleaning skills and loved going on her annual trip to the pumpkin farm and Christmas cookie decorating with her grandchild.
