Patricia Ann was born on November 27, 1946 to her parents Raymond and Lorraine (Buffington Hubbell) Muell in Omaha, Nebraska.
She met the love of her life, Greg Pennisi, in 1962 at a Junior Achievement meeting in Omaha, Nebraska. They were married in June of 1967.
Pat’s first love was always her family. She spent ten years raising her children before working outside the home. She first worked with the CCD program at Sacred Heart Parish. From there, she began working at Sister’s Hospital in Human Resources recruiting and hiring. She continued in this position even after the merger and creation of Faith Regional Health Services. Pat retired after 27 years of service.
Pat was an avid gardener and loved to work in her yard. Her passion for beauty led her to become one of the founding members of the local Questers Antique Club. Her home is filled with antiques and treasures displayed beautifully throughout the home.
She is survived by her husband, children John (Angie), Tom (Kristy), Chad (Angela) and Gina (Tony), grandchildren Alexander, Jacob, Calvin, Walker, Seth, Aaron, Maya, Denver and Giovanni, great grandchildren Josh and Everly, and sisters Judy Burke and Peg Boll.
Pat was preceded in death by her parents.
