Patricia A. Lammers Ninci , Age: 79
March 27, 1939 -- April 21, 2018

Patricia Ann Lammers Ninci passed away April 21, 2018 with her family at her side. Pat was born March 27, 1939, in Boonville, Missouri to Walter F. and Alma Schuster Lammers. She moved with her parents to Kansas City, Missouri in early childhood. Pat earned a scholarship to St. Teresa Academy where she graduated in 1956. She attended Avila College for two years before her marriage to David G. Ninci. They had four children together. Pat dedicated herself to the education and support of her children, working hard to instill in them an appreciation for all that education has to offer. Later, she encouraged her grandchildren to pursue higher education. Pat worked in sales after she and David divorced, retiring from Bayer Animal Health as a Team Leader and member of a national software and business process redesign team. Pat loved to sing, dance, and travel. She was blessed to be able to visit the Holy Land where she met her longtime companion Geza Kelemen, who predeceased her. After being diagnosed with multiple myeloma in 2006, Pat continued to travel throughout the U.S. and visited Greece, Turkey, and most recently, France. In 2010 Pat traveled to Rome to perform at the Basilica di S. Ignacio Loyola with the Sacred Heart of Jesus Choir of which she was a dedicated member. Pat continued to sing in the choir until a week prior to her death. She was also a member of the Tune Time Singers. Pat was preceded in death by her parents, her daughter Lisa R. Ninci Denny, and two infant brothers. She is survived by her children Mark D. Ninci, Escondido, CA, Teresa N. Gibson (Robert), Fayetteville, AR, Gina M. Ninci (Robert Harris), Murrieta, CA; three grandchildren, Alex J. Gibson and Chris D. Gibson, Fayetteville, AR, Adriana N. Ninci, Murrieta, CA; six great-grandchildren, Madeline L.
