Patricia Lynn Becker
Patricia Lynn Becker, a beloved daughter, sister, and aunt, died unexpectedly on Saturday, Oct. 31, 2020, at her home.
Patricia was born March 23, 1964, to Herbert J. and Joan (Kelly) Becker. Patricia was child number seven out of eleven children. All the values of being raised in a large farming family were evident throughout her life.
Patty’s love for her Savior, Jesus, was shown over her lifetime. She was baptized and confirmed at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Woodland, and continued worship as a lifelong member at St. John’s.
She was a 1982 graduate of Hustisford High School and a 1988 graduate of UW-Stout. Patricia taught as a Family and Consumer Education teacher in the Gilman, Sussex-Hamilton, and Hartford School District.
In her spare time, she enjoyed baking, entering her baked items in Dodge and Waukesha County Fair, making her famous dinner rolls, and reading. She also did special projects with all her nieces and nephews, such as backyard camping and kite flying.
Patty continued to teach outside the classroom as she shared her baking skills with young aspiring bakers, (her nieces) teaching them how to bake Irish Soda Bread, monster cookies, and lemon meringue pie. She also taught everyone she encountered how to put the needs of others first.
Patricia is survived by her siblings, Cynthia Zills, Herbert A. Becker III, Debra (Chris) Neitzel, Linda (Dave) Rader, Timothy (Lisa) Becker, David Becker, Jeffery (Charlene) Becker, Sarah Becker, Lisa (Greg) Mueller, Rebecca Becker, and all of her nieces and nephews who meant so much to her. Patricia was also a God-Mother to Christian Neitzel, Katelyn Mueller, Kimberly Zills, and Angela Rader.
She was preceded in death by her parents; and brother-in-law, Robert Zills.
A graveside memorial service will be led by Pastor James Castillo for immediate family at the Hustisford Cemetery on November 12.
Compassion, kindness, thoughtfulness, and generosity were the most abundant ingredients used in Patty’s life. Continue to remember Patty every time you put others needs before your own.
