Patricia Nancy Jameson, age 85, died Wednesday March 17, 2021. She was born to Frank Jameson and Marion Pomeroy Jameson on August 18, 1935, spent her early years in Gays Mills, WI, climbing the hills, helping her dad’s general store, participating in backyard sports, and musical groups in grade school and high school.
After graduating from high school, she earned a Bachelor of Music Education degree from Milton College, Milton WI, and went on to teach elementary music for four years. A time of study at UW-Madison provided K-8 certification, after which she taught kindergarten for 18 years. Changing careers, she received certification as a Master Gardener, and ran her garden business until retirement.
Through the years, Patricia enjoyed being active in athletics and modern dance, fiber arts and other handiwork, gardening, piano, reading and writing poetry. In later years, she was especially drawn to her God, as Father, Savior, and Holy Spirit, who met her in the beginning struggles with living sober. She has experienced His continued guidance and is now welcomed in His eternal kingdom.
She is survived by her brother Scott (Pam) Jameson, her nephew Bill Jameson (Michelle Martin), two step-sons: Peter and Adam Clay, and other nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
