Our beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister and aunt passed away peacefully, surrounded by their family, on Thursday, December 9, 2021, at Maison Saint-Paul. Patricia “Pat” Frank Kloehn was born on June 29, 1935, daughter of the late Melbourne “Boze” and Dorothy (Jansen) Frank. Pat was baptized, confirmed and married at Holy Cross Church in Kaukauna. She married the late Lloyd S. Kloehn on June 23, 1956. Together they had five children, 15 grandchildren and 23 great grandchildren.
Pat grew up on the “Marsh” in Kaukauna and his childhood was filled with fun and adventure. She graduated from Kaukauna High School. Pat and his sister Lois tumbled and danced throughout the early years, performing in dance competitions and recitals. Together, they taught tap, tumbling and dance lessons for 25 years for the Kaukauna Recreation Department. Pat was also a talented drummer and drum majorette for the Kaukauna High School Band.
Pat was a true housewife, wife and mother and raising her five children was her main goal. She taught her children to be honest, hardworking, and to treat others with respect. Later, she worked for the Kaukauna Region School District as a special education paraprofessional, where she treated all the children with kindness and love.
Pat enjoyed traveling with her late husband Lloyd, dancing, cooking, knitting, sewing, fishing, taking boat trips and going “up north”. She especially enjoyed spending time with her family and 15 grandchildren. She was present at concerts and sporting events of her grandchildren. Always wearing their team colors and beaming with pride. She had an adventurous spirit, a caring heart, and a desire to listen and offer support.

Mom’s faith was strong as her nighttime ritual for many years was to pray the Rosary while listening with her CD player and headphones in bed. She is now reunited with her beloved husband Lloyd.
The family would like to sincerely thank the staff and caregivers at St. Paul’s Seniors Services in Kaukauna. Special thanks to Sr. Delores and the nursing and hospice staff. Mom was cared for with compassion and dignity by health workers and volunteers. Special thanks to Dr Greg Johnson who took care of her for many years.
