She died Saturday, Aug. 10, 2019, at her home in Norfolk.
Patricia Ann was born on Nov. 27, 1946, to her parents, Raymond and Lorraine (Buffington Hubbell) Muell in Omaha.
She met the love of her life, Greg Pennisi, in 1962 at a Junior Achievement meeting in Omaha. They were married in June 1967.
Pat’s first love was always her family. She spent 10 years raising her children before working outside the home. She first worked with the CCD program at Sacred Heart Parish.
From there, she began working at Sister’s Hospital in human resources, recruiting and hiring. She continued in this position even after the merger and creation of Faith Regional Health Services. Pat retired after 27 years of service.
Pat was an avid gardener and loved to work in her yard. Her passion for beauty led her to become one of the founding members of the local Questers Antique Club. Her home is filled with antiques and treasures displayed beautifully throughout the home.
She is survived by her spouse; children John (Angie), Tom (Kristy), Chad (Angela) and Gina (Tony); her grandchildren, Alexander, Jacob, Calvin, Walker, Seth, Aaron, Maya, Denver and Giovanni; her great-grandchildren, Josh and Everly; and her sisters, Judy Burke and Peg Boll.
Pat was preceded in death by her parents.
