Patricia K. Blosser, 74, of East Main St., Fayette, died Thursday, August 10, 2017, at St. Luke’s Hospital in Maumee, OH, surrounded by her loving family, following a brief period of declining health.
She was born January 1, 1943, in Sandusky, OH, to the late Duane and Helen (Curtis) Brehm.
She married James H. Blosser, Sr. on June 3, 1966, in Archbold, OH, and the couple lived their entire married life in Fayette, recently celebrating 51 years of marriage and the love of their children and grandchildren. He preceded her in death less than two weeks prior, on July 30.
Pat graduated from Gorham-Fayette High School in 1962. She worked at the former Fayette Tubular Products for more than 35 years, retiring in 1997.
Pat loved her coffee and the pot was always warm for visitors who dropped by the house. She enjoyed her daily coffee breaks with her friends across the street at R & H (Repps) Restaurant. While she was a woman of routine, she was always ready to get in the car with one of her kids for a quick trip to Wauseon or even a family vacation with the grandchildren.
She was an avid reader, often finishing a book in one day. She read fiction, as well as non-fiction, and was particularly interested in learning about the Amish. She had a large collection of angels, including everything from statues and figurines to, of course, books. She attended Wauseon Community Church of the Nazarene.
Pat is survived by five children, James Blosser, Jr. of Defiance, Brad (Lanette) Brehm of Fayette, Chris Blosser of Fayette, Pam (Todd) Moody of Pettisville, and Paula (Dan) Markley of Fayette; siblings, Bob (Mert) Brehm of Wauseon and Mary Ellen (Neale) Chase of Fayette; a sister-in-law, Lavannah (George) Verburg of Tullahoma, TN; twelve grandchildren, Lindsey, Mallory, Emily, Jerrica, Tyler, Noah, Wyatt, Quinn, Josh, Mitch, Montana, and Jacob; and six great-grandchildren, Kinley, Brody, Whitney, Brooklyn, Emberlyn, and Gwendolyn.
In addition to her parents and husband, she was preceded in death by a sister and brother-in-law, Carol (Roger) Prior.
