Patricia A. Cozad Patricia A. Cozad, age 73, passed away Friday, June 16, 2017, at Mercy Medical Center in Des Moines, Iowa.

Patricia was born June 28, 1943, in Des Moines, Iowa, to Dan and Virginia Solomon. Her family was most important to her and she loved spending time with her children and grandchildren. Patricia enjoyed crossword puzzles and word searches. She liked watching old western programs, cooking and eating out. She was ornery and had a good sense of humor. Patricia would do anything for you. She was a very caring person who would go out of her way to help. She had no filter and would often speak her mind, but she was very loving and generous.

Patricia is survived by her children, Gary (Sheila) Cozad, Julie Cozad and Pamela Cozad; grandchildren, Crystal, Kenny, Rodney (Melissa), Blake (Kennedie), Cory (Stevie), R.J., Cody and Samantha; great-grandchildren, Vanessa, Kira, Hudson, Kameron, Trinity, Chanell and Kennedy; and many other friends, cousins and other extended family.

She was preceded in death by her son, Robert Cozad; parents, Dan and Virginia Solomon; brother, Don; and sister, Nancy.

A celebration of life will be held Saturday, July 22, 2017, beginning at about noon, at 804 W. 4th Avenue, Indianola, IA 50125. Please bring a beverage of your choice, and a lawn chair if you wish. Please contact family with any questions.
