She is also survived by sisters Jane Seider of Champaign and Joan Underwood of Villa Grove, and brother Gale Underwood of Villa Grove; sisters- and brothers-in-law; and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by brothers Cleo and Dale Underwood.
Pat was a loving and supportive wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother whose top priority was maintaining a warm and welcoming home. She also worked part-time for many years with her brother at Dale’s Jewelry in Villa Grove.
She had good taste, loved decorating and enjoyed collecting dolls and Longaberger baskets. She was a wonderful cook whose cinnamon rolls were unmatched. A great listener, she cherished her coffee dates with best neighbors Cheri and Norma.
She loved traveling with Dale, especially to Las Vegas for conventions he attended as an engineer for WCIA-TV.
Memorials may be made to maintain the aviary that Pat loved at Windsor Court, 401 Burwash Ave., Savoy, IL, 61874.
