Patricia Marie Marquardt passed away on December 9, 2022 at the age of 77. She was born in Creston, Iowa and later moved to Oregon in her twenties. She is survived by her husband Dennis Marquardt, 3 children, Butch and Tammy Woosley, Tonya and Sam Elkins and Diana Marquardt, 10 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren; 2 brothers, Jim and Richard and her sister Joan; as well as her furry baby Cubby.
Patricia was hard working in whatever she did, helping her sweetie around on the farm, taking care of the home and the family. She worked at the local grocery store until she became a grandmother; she “retired” to spend time with them. As they got older she went back to work, became a weight watcher receptionist for several years. She loved country music, Christmas and of course spending time with family and friends, planning and cooking family gatherings. She recently celebrated her 50th wedding anniversary on Nov 17, 2022, which was always something she looked forward to celebrating.
A funeral service for Patricia will be on Saturday, December 17, 2022 at 1 pm at Springfield Memorial Funeral Home. Arrangements entrusted to Springfield Memorial Funeral Home. Please access the obituary and you are invited to sign the guestbook at musgroves.com
