Mount Pleasant – Patricia “Pat” Ruth Zamagne, 90, passed peacefully to spend eternity with her Lord and Savior on March 31, 2018. She was born in San Diego, California, on July 6, 1927, daughter of the late Lorn and Margaret (née: Wilkinson) Taylor.
Pat moved to Racine as a teenager and attended Park High School, class of ’45. She met the love of her life, Richard “Dick” Zamagne at a roller rink and they were married on June 29th, 1946. Together, they raised four children and celebrated over 60 years of marriage.
Pat and Dick loved boating on Lake Michigan and were members of the Fifth Street Yacht Club. She played on a bowling league and volunteered at the Wise Penny secondhand store. Pat loved music, dancing with Dick, cooking, baking and playing her harmonica. She was an avid fan of the Cubs and always watched their games. After Dick retired, they enjoyed spending their winters in Tucson, Arizona. Her sense of humor showed up often in conversations and writings. She was a good listener and offered wise advice. Most of all, Pat was a great wife, loving mother and grandmother who enjoyed spending time with family.
Left behind to cherish Pat’s memory are her children, Wayne (Lory) Zamagne of Kila, Montana, Wendy (Paul) Yaekel of Racine, Perry (Laura) Zamagne of Kenosha, John (Brandy) Zamagne of Charlotte, North Carolina; 12 grandchildren; 22 great-grandchildren; and 1 great-great-grandchild.
In addition to her parents and brother, Patricia is preceded in death by her husband, Dick.
Pat’s funeral service will be held on Saturday, April 14, 2018, 11:00am, at West Lawn Memorial Park Chapel, 9000 Washington Avenue. In lieu of flowers, memorials have been suggested to the Alzheimer’s Association.
The Zamagne family would like to extend a very special “Thank You” to Pat’s longtime caregiver, Josie Garcia and her family, and to the staff at Grace Hospice in West Allis for the very tender and compassionate care given to Pat during her last years.
