Pat’s Story

Site created on May 2, 2019

Born September 26, 1942 mom has said many times that she feels she has given enough to the medical community. Thyroid cancer in her early 20's. Lung cancer in her 40's. Brain tumor in her 60's. Ovarian Cancer in her 70's. And another brain tumor at age 76. And that is where our story may end. Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.

Open House to Celebrate the Life of Pat Sjoquist

Please join us for wine, nibbles, and memories as we gather together to celebrate our mom, Pat Sjoquist, and the rich and wonderful life she experienced.

Saturday, May 11, 2019
2pm to 6pm
2404 Pleasant Ave. South, Minneapolis (Erin's house)

While we will not have a formal ceremony, we plan to pause at the top of each hour to toast Pat and her life. We'd love it if you would share a story, or any other creative reminiscence of Pat. Music, song, poetry encouraged (there is a piano).

No flowers, please, but memorials can be made to the Eloise Butler Wildflower Garden and Bird Sanctuary:
