Pat's four loving sisters and brother-in-laws completed her family circle; Merce & Bill Benninghoff, Linda & Michael  Gashgarian, Susan and Paul Jazenski, and Brenda Beute along with her nieces and nephews with their children.


She was preceded in death by her parents Erick and Lovie Beute and a great-granddaughter Reagan Cross.  She is now reunited with them along with her son Erick J. Coleman.
