Patricia Louise Lindquist was born on March 25, 1940, in Minneapolis, MN, to Ray and Helen Fjosne.

Pat met the love of her life while cheerleading at Patrick Henry High School in Minneapolis. John was a hockey player, and she was a hockey cheerleader. Pat and John were married in 1962. While John completed his studies at the University of Minnesota, Pat worked as a dental assistant.  The couple welcomed their first daughter, Betsy, and the small family lived in Crystal, MN.

When John got a sales job with Arctic Cat, they moved to Watertown, SD.  They were fortunate to buy a home on Lake Kampeska where they met lifelong friends.   Their second daughter, Stacy, was born, and the family was complete. 

Pat truly enjoyed keeping a beautiful home and was an excellent cook and an even better baker.  You knew that Pat was fond of you when she shared her famous chocolate chip cookie recipe – which she always gave credit to her friend Judy for being the true recipe owner.  

The family moved to Aberdeen, SD when they bought a Sports Center. Pat worked part-time there while caring for the girls. She liked being home when Betsy and Stacy left for school and when they came home. Pat truly enjoyed being a mother and keeping a beautiful home.

After closing the sports center, Pat and John moved to Alexandria, MN, where they started a ramp company.  When John was on the road selling ramps, Pat ran the business end of the company, which she really enjoyed.   When living in Alexandria, they were happy to be closer to their lake home.  They soon realized they were spending a lot of time at the lake and decided to make the lake home their only home.  They made a couple of additions to the small log cabin and made it their permanent home.   Pat loved taking pontoon rides and sitting on the porch and watching the sunsets.  She was truly at peace at the lake.

Spending time with her 7 grandchildren was also important to Pat.  When the grandkids were little, Pat would come and help the girls and provide moral support. After the grandbabies were born, she would stay for a week and do laundry, cook, and help with the new grandbaby.   

Pat had a very special bond with her sister Fran. They talked on the phone daily and looked forward to visits to each other’s homes. Robin Niedenfuhr was also special to Pat. Robin and Pat both loved spending time at Lake Ina. Robin visited Pat weekly when she was in memory care, took her to get her haircut, and painted her nails. Robin was a great gift to Pat and the whole Lindquist family.

One thing to note about Pat is that she loved her dogs.  The family had a parade of labs that Pat was very attached to.  She was happiest with a dog or two by her side. Her kids often joked that she loved her dog more than them! 

The last few years of Pat’s life were challenging as she battled Alzheimer’s.  John visited her every day.  When asked, he said it was a pleasure, not a task, as he loved her so much.  

Grateful for having Shared Pat’s Life are her husband John, of 61 years; her two daughters, Betsy (Larry) Lindquist of Minnetonka, MN, and Stacy (George) Schriver of Aberdeen, SD; her sister Fran (Curtis) Peterson; her two Brothers, Ron (Linda) Fjosne and Michael (Teri) Fjosne; and her grandchildren Mitchell, Tommy, and Mallory Auth and Olivia, Sophia, Julia, and Will Schriver.

Pat was preceded in death by her parents.

The family truly thanks everyone at Diamond Willow Memory Care facility for caring for Pat.  Memorials are preferred to the Christina Lake Church.

Funeral arrangements are entrusted with the Glende-Nilson Funeral Home of Evansville.
