Pat was born March 6, 1951, in Olivia, to Edward and Louise (Bailey) Malecek.

She was a beloved daughter, sister, aunt, sister-in-law, and friend to many, with a special place in her heart for her nieces and nephews. She loved to dote on them and their families – whether it was always remembering a birthday, canning different things for everyone, making that special meal that was their favorite, or sewing something just for them.

Pat was preceded in death by her husband, Elwood “Rod” Rademacher; father Edward Malecek; and a nephew Chris Smith.

She is survived by her mother, Louise Malecek; siblings Jackie (Larry) Smith, Edward “Butch” (Martha) Malecek, Ted (Margie) Malecek, Mary (Alan) Spears, Jean (Don) Hayes, Dave Malecek (Laureen Peterson), Terry (Daryl) Foss, Mike Malecek, Steve (Hisae) Malecek, and Jon (Patty) Malecek; as well as many nieces and nephews.
