Joanmarie, David, Bonnie and Jessicamarie Wermes offer their sincerest condolences to the whole Gerlach family on the death of their dear mother who was so proud and spoke so glowingly of her sons, their spouses and her grandchildren. I worked with Pat at the Daily Herald and we shared Small Church Community at St. Hubert Church. It was to us she opened her home for our meetings and enjoyed being our hostest. She did an outstanding job on the Cafe Ministry as well as served as a lector and communion minister and she spoke of fond memories of her cookie baking and passing out the sweets to patients at St. Alexis Hospital. May my dear friend rest in peace in the arms of our Loving Father God. Joanmarie Wermes
