Patricia Ann Giesie (nee Ford) 85, of Hartland, WI passed away peacefully on Sunday, April 3, 2022 at AngelsGrace Hospice in Oconomowoc. Patt was born May 1, 1936 to Irl and Kathryn Ford in Milwaukee, WI. She married Robert ”Bob” Giesie on September 14, 1957. Together they raised their 5 children in Waukesha: Peter (Sylvia) Giesie of Hartland; William (Nicole) Giesie of Oak Grove, MN; Kathryn (Rickie) Ezell of Colgate; Timothy (Julie) Giesie of Hartland and Patricia (Ronald) Colaianni of Mukwonago. Patt was “Nonnie” to 11 grandchildren: Nicole & Marissa (Josh); Austen & Connor (Jen); Spencer & Anna; Mykayla (Ethan) & Jessica; Olivia & Arthur; 3 great grandchildren, Braxton, Brock and Elizabeth. Her extended family Anthony (Megan) Scheff and their children Thomas & Dean of Hartland; Jamie (Brad) Meyers and their children Peyton and Harper of Amana, IA.
Patt worked as the secretary at St. Mary’s Catholic Grade School and then continued her career at Carroll College. She and Bob retired their home ‘up North’ in St. Germain in 1991. They also created many wonderful family memories at their lake cottage in Westfield, WI. Their lives revolved around their children and families and created great memories of playing euchre, cribbage, sheepshead, dice, sequence, chicken and pig among many other games. Mom taught us to enjoy the simple pleasures of life and time spent with family. Patt is preceded in death by her beloved “Robert” and granddaughter, Mandy Ezell Noelck.
The family would like to extend gratitude to the staff at Waukesha Memorial Hospital and staff and volunteers at AngelsGrace Hospice for their compassionate care.
There will be no services per Patt’s wishes.
