Patricia Ann Lausen
She received her education in the Estherville schools, graduating from Estherville High School in 1973. Following graduation from high school Pat attended Iowa Lakes Community College in Estherville.
On Oct. 30, 1976, she was united to Ralph Lausen in Estherville. The couple lived in rural Estherville where they raised their family and farmed. Over the years Pat was also employed outside the home and worked at Stall's Farm and Home in Estherville, Iowa Lakes Community College in Estherville from 1995 - 2006 and then Avera Holy Family Hospital until her health failed. In her leisure time Pat enjoyed motorcycle riding. She also had a very extensive cup and saucer collection. In the later years Pat loved traveling and purchased a Harley Davidson Trike for that purpose. Her greatest pleasure in life was spending time with her family.
She attended Grandview Baptist Church in Estherville.

Preceding Pat in death were her parents.
