Patsie was a talented piano player who never took a lesson and played over 300 songs by memory.  She and her brother, Leonard, who played the accordion, played for various events over the years.  Patsie will be remembered by so many whose lives she touched with her gentle warmth and kindness.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Wilfred Rebenitsch; her brother and sister-in-law, Leonard (Vivian) Helfrich; and niece, Paulette Helfrich.
