Kathleen Lois (Patterson) Tweet

July 31, 1947 ~ February 28, 2020 (age 72)


Kathleen Lois (Patterson) Tweet, age 72, of Fergus Falls, MN, passed away peacefully, Friday, February 28, 2020, at Pioneer Care, Fergus Falls, following an extended illness.  She was surrounded by her husband and daughter at the time of her passing.

Kathy was born in Devils Lake, ND, on July 31, 1947 to F.T. and Helen (Heinlein) Patterson.  The family called several communities home before settling in Fergus Falls.  She graduated from Fergus Falls High School in 1965.  She married Larry Tweet on February 7, 1972 in Las Vegas, NV.  The couple adopted a daughter, Siiri, in March, 1976.

Kathy spent many years working as a receptionist at Dakota Clinic, Fargo, ND, where the couple lived for many years before returning to Fergus Falls. She had a love for sewing and was constantly collecting fabric for projects now left undone.  Much of her collection will be donated.

Kathy was a strong supporter of her husband, daughter, and grandchildren.  She was an avid cat lover. She had undergone a kidney transplant and that failed after many years.  Despite her dialysis, she remained an inspiration to all those around her.

She was preceded in death by her parents; a three-day old son, Nicholas; sister, Jan Pallansch; brother, Tom Patterson; brothers-in-law, D.J. Pallansch and Bill Harris and her beloved cats Honey and Crickett.

She is survived by her husband, Larry of Fergus Falls; daughter, Siiri (Cory) Fisher; grandchildren, Olivia, Lincoln, and Jackson Fisher, all of Blaine, MN; and sisters, Carol Harris and Judy (Curtis) Twete.

No services are planned.
