Patricia Ann Graf, 77, Fargo, ND passed away on March 18, 2016 at Essentia Health in Fargo. She was born June 22, 1938 to Leonard and Cecilia (French) Sass in Grafton, ND. She grew up in Grafton and attended school in Oakwood and Grafton.
After living in Seattle for a couple years, Pat returned to North Dakota where she met Wilbert Graf. On December 28, 1960 Pat and Willie were united in marriage at St. John’s Catholic Church in Grafton. The couple made their home in Fargo where they raised their three children. They remained married until his passing in 1992.
Pat’s career was in the service industry and she worked at many restaurants in Fargo.
Her hospitality was seen at home as well. Pat loved taking care of people and was the “hostess with the mostest.” She enjoyed a full house. Her home was the gathering place for her friends and extended family; and they had many happy memories of playing card and board games.
Pat’s vivacious personality and warm heart were what drew people to her. There was never a stranger when Pat was around, and she made friends wherever she went. Her quick wit and wonderful sense of humor will be greatly missed.
She is survived by her children, Michael (Rhonda Bry) Graf, Mari (Doug) Rollins, Lori Graf; sisters, Mary Jane Olsen and Carol (Dan) Schluchter; grandchildren, Amber Kolrud and Logan Rollins; many other relatives and friends.
She was preceded in death by her husband; sister, Susan Einarson.
The family would like to thank the staff and residents of Sheyenne Crossings where she enjoyed her last two years and had many wonderful friends.
