Mrs. Siegrist was a 1972 graduate of Fort Loramie High School. She had been a homemaker, dedicated to her family. She was also a waitress at several area restaurants including the Sidney Moose Lodge, Golden Lantern and The Fairington. Years ago, she worked as a florist for Accents on Main and Martin's Flower Shop. Pat was a member of St. Michael Catholic Church and was an active missions volunteer at the New Community Church in St. Marys.
We have all lost one of the kindest, strongest, selfless woman anyone could ever meet. She gave everyone everything while expecting nothing. The woman who would be up at all hours of the night doing acts of service for church or family events, making sure the town paper route was done, making sleeping mats and blankets for the homeless out of plastic grocery bags, taking care of elderly neighbors and countless other things. We can only hope to be half the person that she was.
Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated 10:30 AM, Wednesday, August 16, 2023, at St. Michael Church in Fort Loramie with Rev. Arron Hess presiding. Interment will follow at St. Michael Cemetery.
