Patricia Lee Dickert, 84, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by her family on Friday. Pat was a “Christmas present” born in Beloit, Wisconsin on December 25, 1933 to the late Bernard and Mearl (Nee: DeMontigny) Mooney.

David passed away on April 5, 1992. Pat retired as an administrative assistant at Johnson Bank where she was employed for 22 years. She was a longtime member of St. Joseph’s Catholic Church and the Christian Mothers. She loved traveling, playing Uno, taking photos and bird watching – her favorite being the eagle. Above all it was time spent with her family that she treasured the most, especially time with her grandchildren. Pat was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother who will be dearly missed.

In addition to her parents and husband Dave, she was preceded in death by her son, Daniel; 2 brothers, Bernard and Richard (Adele) Mooney.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Friday at 10:30 a.m. at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, with Father Steve Varghese officiating. Relatives and friends may meet Thursday at the funeral home from 4 p.m. until 7 p.m. and on Friday at the church from 9:45 a.m. until 10:15 a.m.
