Obituary

Patricia A. Zahn, 86, passed away Wednesday January 10, 2018 at the George E. Wahlen Veterans Home.
She was born on May 10, 1931 in Superior, Wisconsin to Terence and Olive Tracy.
Patricia was a member of the Catholic Church.
As a child, Patricia grew up along the shores of Amnicon Lake, south of Superior Wisconsin and had many fond memories of playing along the shores and woods near the lake. After graduation from high school, while working as a secretary for Standard Oil Company, she met Dale Zahn. Patricia and Dale were married on November 19, 1955 in Superior, Wisconsin. They were married for 57 wonderful years, until Dale’s death in December of 2012. Patricia and Dale lived in many different locations while Dale was in the Air Force. In 1970, they decided to retire in Utah and built a house in Roy. Patricia liked to work with young children and volunteered for several years as a resource aide at North Park Elementary in Roy, working with children on improving their reading and writing skills. She was known for her kindness and generosity to others.
Patci made Christmas a special time for her kids and grand kids. Throughout the year she would get fun items and treasures, put them in paper sacks, and have everyone open the sacks at the same time. She would sit back and enjoy the looks on everyone’s face while they went through the contents of their sacks.
She is survived by her children: Paul (Paula) Zahn, Adele (James) Aadland, Mary Jo Chevalier, 8 grand children and 10 great-grand children.
She was preceded in death by her husband Dale Zahn, mother and father Olive and Terence Tracy, brothers Terence and Don Tracy.
The family would like to thank the George E Wahlen Veterans Home for their compassion, care and support during the 5 years she was a resident. Also, the family thanks Bristol Hospice for their care during her final days.
Patricia did not want any services. Patricia’s final wishes were to have her ashes scattered from a hot air balloon.
In Lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the George E Wahlen Ogden Veterans Home, 1102 North 1200 West, Ogden, Utah.
Services under the Direction Myers Mortuary 5865 S 1900 W Roy, Utah 84067.
