Frank died Jan 19. 1996. They farmed with Frank’s family and Patsy taught grade school in the Fairfield school district, earning her master’s in Elementary Science from Northeast Missouri State University later in her career.

After 45 years in Fairfield, she moved in 2002 to New Hampton with her son’s family to continue farming. She moved again with the family in 2010 to Hampton after selling the family farm. In June 2019 she resided at Apple Valley Assisted Living where she enjoyed creating cards to share with friends and family.
