Patricia Sternberg, 48

Patricia Ann ‘Patty’ Sternberg, age 48, of Watertown, passed away Thursday, Nov. 3, 2016, at Golden Living Lakeridge in Roseville.

She was born March 19, 1968, and became part of the Sternberg family 10 days later.

Patty was the life of the party. She loved to go shopping, spend time with friends and family, and competed in Special Olympics.

She took whatever job that was given to her very seriously, and would want you to know that she was a “hard-worker.”

Anyone who met Patty could not easily forget her. She had a special charm and wit that made everyone around her feel welcomed and accepted.

Patty is survived by her loving parents: Eugene and Kathy Sternberg; siblings Janelle Sternberg (Albert Paredes), Garth (Brittney) Sternberg, and Deanna (Dan) Maslowski; nieces and nephews: Destini Maslowski, Dustin Maslowski, Estela Paredes, Destiny Funston, Ethan Higby and Gabriella Sternberg; and biological half-siblings Linda (Frank) Reese, Roberta (John) Benson, Doug Beaulieu, Laura Berube, Sally (James) Swidrak, Sue (Tom) Solomon, Randy (Rebecca) Sternberg.

She was preceded in death by biological half-siblings Brent Sternberg and Duane Beaulieu.

There was a memorial service Wednesday, Nov. 9 at 1 p.m. at Mt Olivet Lutheran Church in Delano; with a gathering of family and friends one hour prior to the service at the church.

Arrangements were with the Johnson Funeral Home in Waconia; www.johnsonfh.com.
