Obituary for Patricia J. Steckbauer

Patricia J. Steckbauer, age 78, of Rhinelander, WI, passed away on Tuesday, March 17, 2020, at Friendly Village Nursing Home. Patricia was born to the late Fredrick Hugh and Dimple Delight (Nichols) Theilman on August 1, 1941, on her grandmother’s kitchen table in Elmhurst, WI. She grew up in the Elmhurst, Tigerton, Embarrass, Shawano, and Antigo areas. On July 26, 1958, she married Richard “Dick” Steckbauer, in Aniwa, WI.

Patricia and Richard had seven children in nine years while living in the Harshaw area. Patricia enjoyed volunteering, writing, and quilting. In 1987, she secured her GED of which she was very proud. In 2014, Richard died and her greatest love story ended. While her life was filled with many challenges, she successfully raised strong-willed and hard-working children.

Patricia is survived by her 7 Children, SueEllen (Glenn) Hopp, of Rhinelander, WI, Ann (Tony) Pichardo, of Albuquerque, NM, Laura (Joel) Keplin, of Ripon, WI, Mark (Felicia) Steckbauer, of Olive Branch, MS, Christine (Kirk) Russell, of Elkhorn, WI, Phillip (Marie) Steckbauer, of Cummings, GA, and Keith (Jodi) Steckbauer, of New London, WI;

1 Sister, Donna Duranceau, of Tomahawk.

She is further survived by 21 Grandchildren and 8 Great-Grandchildren.

Patricia was preceded in death by her Husband, Richard; Parents, Frederick and Dimple; In-Laws, Ambrose and Agnes Steckbauer, who she loved as a mother; her Brother, Irwin “Dick” Theilman; Sister, Shirley Haas, and her Granddaughter, Kaitlyn Steckbauer.

No immediate services are planned. A graveside ceremony will be held in July at the Union Grove Cemetery in Harshaw, WI.  Family and friends are encouraged to leave online condolences.
