Pattie Williams

Patricia “Pattie” G. Williams, 68, of Park Rapids, MN died on Monday, May 17, 2021 at her home near Park Rapids, MN.

Pattie was born March 11, 1953 in Pontiac, MI. She grew up in Michigan, graduated from high school, attended college then moved to Jackson Hole, WY. She loved life and if it had a throttle it was wide open, typifying the way she lived her life. There were very few adrenaline-pumping, daring adventures she wouldn’t try. She was a world-class downhill skier, mountain snowmobiler, ATV racing, horseback elk hunting avid outdoors woman who loved a quiet time wrapped in a blanket by the campfire.

Pattie worked for Sotheby’s International Real Estate from 1991 until she retired in 2009. Pattie was gifted with administrative skills and handled all of the paperwork and closings for an office full of busy realtors which was very rewarding and satisfying for her.

On July 5, 1992 she married Patrick Williams in Thompson Falls, MT. They resided in Jackson Hole until 2019 when they moved to Park Rapids.

Her sons, Bob and Scout, were the love of her life and she cherished every moment she spent with them. Her four grandchildren became the focus of her love and concern in these last years.

Pattie is survived by her husband, Patrick of Park Rapids; sons, Bob Trim of Big Fork, MT, and Scout (Christina) Trim of Shelby Township, MI; 4 grandchildren, Jackson, Andrew, Evan, and Ellison (Ellie) Trim; siblings, Maureen (Jeff) Daugherty of West Branch, MI, Vicky (Patrick) McClusky of Ortonville, MI, Penny Arnold of Pontiac, Vivian Anderson of Alma, MI, Judy (Terry) McClusky of Harrison, MI, Dawn McClusky of Harrison, Albert (Angela) Kuerbitz, Jr. of Sterlin Heights, MI, and Ricky Kuerbitz of Pontiac.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Albert and Patricia Kuerbitz; and brothers, Brad O’Brien and Tommy Moore.
