During that time she met Stephen Ortmeyer on a blind date in 1967 and were united in marriage on April 12, 1969. Steve and Pat had three children, Jay, Craig and Tracy and Pat devoted her life to being a mother. She served as PTA president and volunteered for any activity her children were involved in.

Cheryl and I were saddened to hear of Pat's passing. It has been many years since we lived in the Kansas City area. And while the passage of time has caused many memories to fade, I still clearly remember Pat's always friendly smile and her welcoming nature. Know that Steve and the entire family are in our thoughts and prayers.

Tracy and family, My condolences go out to the whole Ortmeyer family. I enjoyed your mom's monthly haircuts so much. I'm thinking, we had to start coloring and perming her hair just so we had more time to laugh and share stories! One thing was very clear, she loved her family and especially those granddaughters more than anything else in this world. She will be greatly missed. My heart goes out to you all. With deepest sympathy, Nancy
