Patricia was born to John and Helen Jones on June 1, 1948. She graduated from McClellan High in 1966.

She retired from southwestern Bell with 25 years of service at the age of 50, and then went on to serve 20 years at Grace Lutheran and retired there as the church secretary.

She was a member of Grace Lutheran, a past national officer in the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League and even held a master’s degree from Concordia Seward (Nebraska) Lutheran College in Family Counseling.

Patricia loved crocheting, cross-stitching, but most of all loved her family and church family. She was always serving.

Patricia was preceded in death by her husband of 48 years John “Jack” Funk; her stepson, David Funk; parents John and Helen Jones; and sister, Sandra Price.

She is survived by her stepdaughter, Christi Shobe; grandchildren, Alicia Chambers (Vaughan), Stephanie Funk (Steve McCratic) whom she raised, Jessica Funk, Melanie Stuursma (Joel), David Shobe (Rachel); and great- grandchildren, Ashley Lowry, Charlie and Piper McCratic, Penelope and Gwyneth Stuursma, Andrew and Emilia Shobe, Hayden, Wyatt and Karlee Shepherd; brother, Don Jones (Judy and children), and Robert Jones (Carol); sister-in-law, Lorraine Hannah.
