Patricia “Patti” Jo Mc Dougal George, 77, passed away peacefully at her home on Sunday, May 7, with her four children by her side. 


Patti was born on July 8, 1939, to Burl and Audrey (Fish) Mc Dougal. In her early years she spent a great deal of time on her grandparent’s (Ross and Bessie Fish) farm in rural Solders Grove, where she learned a strong work ethic and love for animals. She graduated in 1957, from Richland Center High School and then received a B.S. degree in Education from the University of Wisconsin Platteville in 1961. She touched the lives of generations of students as she taught English for over 30 years.


Patti loved her children and grandchildren with a passion and reveled in their successes; she was always there to be supportive. She enjoyed cooking, reading, politics, crossword puzzles and never lost her desire to learn.


Patti is survived by her husband Robert E. George; children Steven George, Judith (David) Shortess, Terry (Anita) George and Timothy George; five grandchildren; and two step-grandchildren. 


She was preceded in death by her parents; her sister Judith Korback; brother-in-laws Edward Korback and Harris Jr. George; and sister-in-law, Linda George.


A memorial service will be Saturday, May 20, at 2 p.m., at the Bible Baptist Church in Prairie du Chien, with Pastor Andy Doll officiating. A private family inurnment will be later in the North Clayton Cemetery in Soldiers Grove. The Garrity Funeral Home of Prairie du Chien is assisting the family.
