She will be remembered fondly by family, friends and neighbors for her welcoming and fun personality, if you met her, you were soon her friend and invited to one of her many “famed” parties. Patty was very talented, many were recipients of her stained glasswork, paintings or sewing projects.

She is survived by her children, Dirk (Terri) Christiansen and Kim Christiansen; her grandchildren, Jennifer Christiansen, Andy Christiansen, Kristie Swanson and Eric (Taylor) Swanson.

Patty was preceded in death by her husband, Thomas J. Ellerthorpe; and her sister, Joan (Foresman) Ireland.
