Pat was born April 12, 1930 in Cody, Wyoming to Arvid and Luanna Blackstead.
She was a beloved 50 year member of Fort Des Moines United Methodist Church where she served as church secretary for 25 years. Pat was devoted to her family and loved spending time with them, especially her grandkids.

Pat is survived by her children, Pam (Craig) Cave, Mike (Betty) Hamman; and Sherri (Rusty) Russell; nine grandchildren; several great-grandchildren; and a host of extended family and dear friends.

She was preceded in death by her loving husband, Jim and her daughter and son-in-law, Ginger and Preston Hallway.
