Patricia resided for 30 years at the ARC Apartments in Saugerties and lived at the ARC Palmer House for the last 2 years. She enjoyed her many jobs over the years, especially at McDonalds in Saugerties. Patty was quite athletic at a younger age and was very proud of all her Special Olympics medals. She loved the Yankees and anything Disney, especially Minnie & Mickey. She took many trips to Disney World, where she would visit her brother Ron and sister-in-law Cathy. Patty had a love of life that was infectious. Her joyous smile, twinkling eyes and silly giggles brought joy to all who knew her.
Patty is also predeceased by her loving brother, Tom Tegeler. She is survived by her brothers John Tegeler and his wife, Regina of Martinsville, NJ, Donald Tegeler of Kingston, NY, Ronald Tegeler and his wife Cathy of Windermere, FL, and sisters Susan Johnston and her husband Harold of Chandler, AZ and Cathy Lindhorst and her husband, Robert of Saugerties, NY, and sisters-in-laws Mary Tegeler of Cottekill, NY, and Kim Tegeler of Kingston, NY.
