Obituary of Patricia Rose Eiserman
With heavy hearts we announce the passing of Patricia, our loving and devoted mother and friend to all whose lives she touched, on April 22, 2019. She left us while resting peacefully at her home in Tucson, Arizona. She was in her 88th year.
Patricia Rose Eiserman was born on August 30th, 1930 in Chicago, Illinois and was preceded in death by her husband of 54 years, John Henry Eiserman. Both John and Patricia were lifetime members of the Roman Catholic Church and brought their 15 children up in the church. They met while attending a Catholic action meeting in Chicago and wrote letters back and forth. Patricia’s father, Elmer John Baier, was convinced John would make a perfect husband for his oldest daughter, and he could not have been more right.
Until her health condition made it impossible, Pat spent her days singing in the requiem choir at St. Francis De Sales parish, walking her dog Sonny, and traveling with her husband. She loved music and even attended a Frank Sinatra concert in her youth.
Patricia Rose Eiserman is survived by her 10 daughters, Patricia Morris, Janet (Jeff) Stykel, Leslie (Rich) Schindler, Elizabeth (Jay) Barr, Jennifer (Steve) Ethridge, Regina Mitchell, Victoria (Jim) Rufer, Christine Riley, Laurie (Eric) Tatham, and Marie (Justice) Bodman and her 5 sons, Stephen (Lydia) Eiserman, Mark Eiserman, Peter (Gail) Eiserman, Joseph Eiserman, and John Eiserman. She is also survived by her sisters Carolyn (Dave) Rodgers, Nancy (Jim) Krieger, and Midge (Patrick) Sheehan. Patricia will be missed by her 50+ grandchildren.
