As a 71 year old cousin of Patties I have wonderful memories of Neil Louise Dennis and Patty. Happy to see her at the last Seehafer reunion after many years. She was able to visit our farm and store and we reminisced. Thanks for the memories!
~ Ken Seehafer - April 6, 2020
To Pat’s Family - I’m Patty’s cousin, Gloria Seehafer Wilen. I remember Patty, as I called her, from our childhood years in Marshfield, Wausau and Ladysmith, WI. As soon as I heard of her death, a beautiful picture immediately came to mind: Patty and Wade, sitting at the dining room table in my parents new home on our farm in Marshfield in the summer of 1965. They were visiting from Kansas. I know other relatives were there as well as it was definitely a special occasion. I can still see Patty and Wade smiling so beautifully. Mother had the picture which I so wish I had, but I can still see it so vividly. Unfortunately, many years passed before I saw her again, but was so happy and surprised when she came to the Seehafer reunion 6 years ago. We all had a great time reminiscing - and when Patty and Denny are around - lots of laughs!
I enjoyed reading of all her achievements - she was truly an accomplished and lovely woman.
Wishing you peace and solace during this difficult time.

We,members of the JCARSP, want you to know that we feel like we are the lucky ones to have had the opportunity to work with Pat and that we know how fortunate we were to have her as a member of the USD #475. We are grateful for the positive influence she had on the children's lives here in Junction City. We will always be thankful for her presence. With sincere sympathy, Members of the Junction City Association of Retired School Personnel
~ Julia Ferguson - March 29, 2020
We were class mates with Pat in Junction City, KS. at Junction City High School. Pat was always a leader in the class of 1960, always shared a smile. We live in Colorado and lost contact with Pat over the years. Don't recall her attending anyone of our class reunions. From the Obituary it is obvious that she has a wonderful family of children and grandchildren.
We send our sincere condolences to the entire family in the loss of Pat. Be sure you re-live the many memories that you experienced with Pat during her life. The
many acknowledgements Pat contributed to secondary education. She had a genuine love for education in supporting the children and improving the process.
Our deepest sympathies, to her family and friends, she will be missed.
Warmest regards and God Bless;
Dennis L. and Barbara E. Cross
Castle Pines, CO 80108

Over the years, Pat meant many things to our family: delightful neighbor, favorite teacher, treasured friend. She meant much more to Junction City’s community and school system. Our love and condolences to her wonderful family. We share in your sorrow.

~ Mike Dishman - March 26, 2020
I feel so fortunate to have had Aunt Pat in my life! She was an amazing lady that I admired for her kindness, intelligence, wit, laughter, and gracious hospitality. I’ve always appreciated our long talks during visits, and her advice on life and being a mom has inspired me over the years. She will truly be missed and we are keeping the entire family in our thoughts and prayers.
We love you Aunt Pat!! May your memory be eternal!
Aurora, Adam, Brandt, Braden, and Derek

I grew up in JC with Pat and her family. Such fun loving children that always made me laugh. They got that from her, her giggle just always made me smile so much! Such a smart, strong and amazing woman.Hugs and prayers to her children and grandchildren.
~ Gretchen Westerhaus - March 25, 2020
I was so sad to hear that Pat had passed. I have known Pat since Stan and I were in Kindergarten together, and many years later she was one of my favorite high school teachers. If I'm asked to bring up my favorite memory of her, it has to be her smile and her laugh; to me it was contagious. Her calm nature and love of education was passed along to Stan. Wade, Stan, and Lynn; my thoughts and prayers are with you all. May all the wonderful memories you have of your mom bring you peace and comfort through this time. Love, Julie Vogelsang Switzer

Dear Family and Friends,
I am so sorry for your loss of this wonderful woman. Pat was a great inspiration to so many of us. I met her as a young teacher at JCHS. She had such high expectations of us, some that could seem impossible until she showed us how to reach them. I loved her laugh and her joy of life. I will miss her terribly! With sincere sympathy, Cathy
~ Catherine Hedge - March 24, 2020
I had the opportunity to meet Pat a few times at Nieman Elementary. Her love for the children was immediate. I throughly enjoyed our time together and I am blessed enough to be able to say my life was impacted by her presence.
~ Benjamin Ford - March 24, 2020
Pat was very intelligent, beautiful and had true dignity ( if you can imagine that in a high schooler). An outstanding woman her whole life long.
~ Dick Fulmer - March 23, 2020
Boy.... I will miss her smile and all the laughs we had on the sidelines over the years.... and her caramels, but hopefully Marissa has that covered. ;) My condolences to Lynn and Brian and all of your family in this difficult time. Love you guys.

Dear Wade, Stan and Lynn,
I was so sad to learn of Pat's death. My first acquaintance with her was as a "parent of my student" (Wade...then Stan) at Lincoln Elementary but as I became better acquainted with her she became not only a parent but also a cherished mentor, admired educator, sage adviser and most of all a friend. I remember with fondness the opportunities I had to work with her, chat with her and laugh with her through the years. In watching the video, I could hear her voice, remember her laugh and feel that calm feeling when in her presence. I was also especially thinking of her this morning as I was holding "Grandma School" for my grandchildren who are following "social distancing". We began reading "Little House in the Big Woods" and I remember how impressed I was when she told me the story of getting to meet Laura Ingalls Wilder in person. She said she had gotten her autograph but at the time didn't know where it was! My thought and prayers are with you and your families. I know she will be deeply missed by you but also know she will be deeply missed by many....me included! My love to you all - Patti Schoenrock
~ Patti Schoenrock - March 23, 2020
Pat was one of my favorite colleagues from my tenure at USD475. She had such energy and devotion to our students and staff. I knew I could count on her support and I also knew I had to continuously grow professionally to measure up. Her impact was remarkable. More importantly was her compassion. She was a kind and generous lady. My thoughts and prayers are extended to the family. I hope your fond memories carry you through this difficult time.
~ Greg Lumb - March 23, 2020
Pat was a mentor to so many. I had the pleasure of working with her in USD 475. She was wise and funny. She taught us all so much. Prayers to her family and friends.
~ Mona Manley - March 23, 2020
Pat will forever be remembered for her quote, "We have to remember the little people..." She was a strong advocate for good literacy for all children. She was a amazing leader in USD 475 and I am a better person for knowing her. I will always remember her as a mentor and one of the Ol' Guards of USD 475. I am proud to have known her. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with the family as they find peace at this time.
~ Jennifer Black - March 23, 2020
To Pat’s family: You all were greatly loved by this fun-loving wise lady. I was fortunate to become her “seat partner” as we toured Sweden and Norway and our friendship continued. May you find comfort in all of your special memories. Natalie Miller
~ Natalie Miller - March 23, 2020
I have such cherished memories of Pat as a professional colleague and dear friend. We shared a background as USD 475 English teachers who moved into administration in the district. Pat was one of the best colleagues with whom I was privileged to work across three states and five school districts. The time working with the team of Max, Mary, Betty, Sam and Pat were among the truly golden times. She cared deeply about children an the profession, and the district, the children and the community were better because of her work and dedication. The world was a better place for her having been here, and for those who knew her, for me it is a sadder one today with her passing.
~ David Flowers - March 23, 2020
Pat was an amazing cheerleader. She was always on the front line for her grandkids at their activities. You could count on her smile! Devoted. Our team will miss her. Angels will sing her home. Blessings for your family. Mary Ann Mathew Teresa and family.
~ Mary ann Lillig - March 23, 2020
We are so sad for the loss of our dear friend who shared, with us, the activities of our mutual grandchildren. Her spirit & encouragement will be missed, especially by the grandkids. Thinking of the family with sympathy & love.

I am one of the many lucky ones that had the pleasure of knowing Mrs. Anderson. She was kind, warm, brilliant, and funny! I remember as a teenager hanging out with Lynn and after a day of sunning ourselves on their deck, Lynn complained about burning her thighs. Without missing a beat, Mrs. Anderson said, "It was closest to the sun." I still giggle when I think of it today. I still have the graduation card she sent me when I graduated college that said she was happy Lynn and I were graduating on the same day. No matter how long I went without seeing Mrs. Anderson I was always greeted with a hug and sincere questions of how I was and how my family was. She truly cared about people.
My heart goes out to the entire family. I love you all and will keep your mother's spirit in my heart forever. She has and continues to impact my life in so many positive ways.
~ Tammy McCandless - March 22, 2020
What a woman, what a woman! My dear friend, my dear colleague and my confidant.
You will be missed and always loved!
You had a way of placing ideas in my mind!
The one time I placed an idea in your head you laughed and said where have you been? I have been waiting for this day so long!
Shortly after that USD 475 re-instated its orchestra program after a 50 year absence.
Following that we worked as smoothly as any team! You were the wind for me.
So now I say goodbye from a distance. My heart hurts and I have cried many times since Carol told me of your illness.
My heart will continue to ache but you will be moving around heaven taking to everyone you ever wanted to and probably being certain there is room for your children and grandchildren!
May God forever love you, keep you, bless you and those you love!
You colleague and friend forever,
~ Ronald Walker - March 22, 2020
Pat was wonderful woman. I am Stan's former secretary at Nieman. She came up during summer break to call future kindergarten students. She had the most inviting voice and beautiful attitude. I only knew Pat for a short time but she will live in my heart forever. Rest well Pat!
~ Jonelle Carter - March 22, 2020
I had the pleasure of learning from and working with Pat for many years in USD 475. Her love and caring for our students was foremost in everything she did. The statement "Learning For All Whatever It Takes" was how Pat did things.
Praying for the repose of her soul and for her family.
~ Dr. Ferrell Miller - March 22, 2020
Although I did not have many opportunities to spend time with Mrs. Anderson, the brief time was a cherished one.
She carried such a warmth and zeal for life wherever she went! Her heart of service pushed me, and all of us, to become more creative of how we could serve others.
As a friend of Stan, it is clear where he got his compassionate drive. Part of her legacy will continue through his service to Kansas and beyond.

Pat Anderson and her family were our close neighbors when our family first moved to Junction City, KS, in 1976. Pat was a tremendous mother, grandmother, teacher, administrator and friend to so many people throughout her lifetime. She always went above and beyond to help children and this was definitely one of her many passions. As a teacher she frequently helped me with my homework and made me want to be a better student. As a mentor, she helped me with my college essays. She also wrote the kindest letters of recommendation for me for college and work. She taught me to be a better writer and exemplified what an amazing teacher should be for children. I am blessed to have known Pat Anderson and she will always be remembered as one of the most positive and influential women in my life. She made the world a much better place for thousands of people throughout her lifetime. Pat and her son, Stan, most recently attended my father's funeral in Sarasota, FL, in July of last year. It was so great to get to see her, hug her and share some fun family stories together. Pat Anderson will be dearly missed.
~ Kyle Bollman - March 22, 2020
Thank you to everyone that has shared love and support for mom in her lifetime. Please share your special Pat Anderson memory. Thank you.
~ Stanley Anderson - March 22, 2020
Pat & I were close friends in high school in Wausau, WI. Years later 2008 when we retired in Lake Ozark, MO Pat & I reconnected. We enjoyed a 24-hr stay with her recalling our high school days and the years that had passed. She surely did love her family & church. I remember Pat for her loyalty, her wit & her brilliance.
I was hoping to see my friend this summer but now it will be in heaven. Peace and comfort to all her family.
