PATRICIA ANN FROMWILLER, 78, a lifetime resident of Lapeer, passed away on January 5, 2023, in the comforts of her home and with family by her side. She was born in Lapeer on September 23, 1944, to Kenneth and Rita Smith. Pat was a special person, wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend. She truly touched everyone’s heart she ever met. She loved her family deeply. Her husband, children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, brothers, and sisters were absolutely everything to her. It didn’t matter what was going on in her life, she would drop everything just to be by their side, or to lend an ear, or to put a smile on their face. She was always present to provide the love she felt for every one of them.
Pat loved her many friends as if they were an extension of her family. She always enjoyed the time she spent with them, whether it be simple little talks, walks, bike rides, kayaking, bunco, or lunches. She always enjoyed every minute of her time with them. She will be greatly missed by many.
