Pat was born on August 2, 1939 in Woodbine, Iowa to parents, William and Frances VanArsdol. She graduated from Denison High School and moved to Des Moines in the late 1950’s. She worked for 22 years at Mercy Medical Center in food service. She retired in 2000.

Pat enjoyed bowling, with many years in a bowling league, working in her yard, and following her favorite teams: Iowa Hawkeyes, Chicago Cubs and Bears. She loved her family and friends and always enjoyed spending time with them. Her favorite holiday to celebrate was St. Patrick’s Day. Part of her morning routine was praying the Rosary and reading scripture.
