Patricia A. Paulsen, age 66, of Neshkoro, passed away peacefully surrounded by her family, early Saturday morning, February 29, 2020, at Hospice Home of Hope in Fond du Lac after battling cancer for one year.
Patti was born November 12, 1953 in Campbellsport, Wisconsin the daughter of Raymond and Marion (Webb) Ketter. On December 30, 2006 she married Jerry Paulsen in Neshkoro. He preceded her in death on June 8, 2019.
Patti was raised in the Eden area where she attended Campbellsport High School graduating in 1971. She worked for Alliance Laundry Systems in Ripon, WI, retiring in February, 2018 and was employed at Copps Food Center (Pick n Save) in Wautoma for many years.
Her love for her family and friends were always evident by her bright smile and genuine compassion for others. Patti was a hard worker and devoted grandmother. Jerry always said the wheels on the car never stopped turning, if she was not at one of her two jobs, she was off to an adventure with the grandkids. She was always full of life and spunk, giving us one last prank by passing on Leap Day.
