It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved wife, mother, and friend, Patty Koeller, who departed from this world on June 4th, 2024. She was surrounded by her family and loved ones, leaving behind a legacy of love, kindness, and unwavering strength.

Patty is survived by her husband, Mike Koeller; children, Jason (Amanda McNally), Zachary and Ryan; grandchildren, Jack and Cade; as well as siblings Margaret Barr (Angelo), Kathryn Wade (Mike), Mike Riley (Debbie), and Kevin Riley (Marlene). 

Patty was the devoted wife of Mike with whom she shared 53 years of marriage. Together, they built a life filled with love, laughter, and many cherished memories. Patty supported her family with endless dedication and love. Patty had a unique ability to make a space beautiful. Her gardening, her interior design and her laughter are all things that she will be remembered by.
