Patricia Gage

Patricia Anna Gage, 83, of Lansing passed peacefully at Thornton Manor in Lansing September 9, 2018. A celebration of life will be held September 29 from 1-5 p.m. at Milty’s in Lansing.

Patricia was born December 11, 1934 in Winona, MN to Lambert and Margaret (Johnson) Dzwonkowski.

She is survived by her children: Tom (Sue), Roxanne Smerud, John, Edward, Timothy and Greg Gage; her siblings: Shirley Ciseweski of Minnesota City, MN, Judith Frisch of Altura, MN, Janine (Jim) Stiles of Winona, MN and Richard (Kathy) Bell of Homer, MN; her grandchildren: Nicole, Mitchell, April, Leisha Jo, Gerad, Justin, Logan, Nick, Cody, Brenden, Brooke, Ellicha and Riley; and an ever-growing number of great- and great-great-grandchildren.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Margaret and Lambert; her husband, Ed; her son, Warren; her brother, Lambert Jr. (Butch); her son-in-law, Ron Smerud; her brothers-in-law, Harold Ciseweski and Leroy Frisch; her granddaughter, Kelly Deeney; and her best friend of 50 years, Alice Heim.

Pat was known for her sense of humor, bountiful storytelling and contagious laughter. She loved to paint and kept a place in her heart for any and all members of the animal kingdom. But the truth is, heaven just got a lot funnier with Pat currently retelling her full repertoire of mildly obscene jokes to everyone in heaven and sharing a can of Miller Lite on ice with Alice at the “Other Place”. Pat is deeply missed, but already living on in the laughter and love for the memory of her life she has blessed us all with.
