With great sadness, the family of Patrice Mae Rozeske, age 63, of Eau Claire, WI, announces her unexpected passing Wednesday, April 3, 2019 in Eau Claire.
She was born July 7, 1955, in Glencoe, to Vernon and Betty (Bergmann) Wroge.
Pat married Robert (Bob) Rozeske Nov. 16, 1974. Bob passed away in 2001.
Pat worked for 30 years at Club’s Choice Fundraising, where she wore many hats, but found joy in sales.
Known for her welcoming, engaging, and attentive personality, Pat was easy to smile and always eager to spend time and socialize with her loved ones. She had an outgoing spirit, exemplified by her travels with family across North America and Europe.
During the summer months, Pat would spend weekends at her cabin in Minnesota, where she loved relaxing beside the lake, admiring the sunset. At home, she enjoyed gardening and took pride in her flowers and unexpected pumpkins.
She kept family and friends close, even when they were miles away, with inviting conversation. Pat was always a willing participant and her open-mindedness brought her many enriching experiences that made being in her company an absolute pleasure.
Her family and friends will dearly miss her spunk and style, calmness and caring, and love and loyalty that warmed the hearts of everyone she met. Pat will be greatly missed.
She is survived by her mother, Betty; brother David (Lori) Wroge; children Mary Elizabeth (Adam) Rumphol, Robert Rozeske II, Thomas (Jordan) Rozeske, and Madeline (Thomas) Stellick; and granddaughters Amelia and Eleanor Rumphol; as well as her amazing family of nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, in-laws, and crazy cousins.
Pat was preceded in death by her father, Vernon; sister, Susan Mueller; brother, Daniel Wroge; and nephew Nicholas Wroge.
