â€˜Pattyâ€™ or â€˜Trishâ€™ to some and â€˜Gooseâ€™ to others. Born April 24, 1945, she had an indomitable spirit. Her zeal for life was infectious when around her, you couldnâ€™t help but to laugh and have fun. She was a mother to three children and their spouses; Susan Bohlen Pendergast, her husband Ron Pendergrast, her son Richard Bohlen, and the youngest, Tricia Bohlen Landrette and her husband Anthony Landrette. A Grandmother to four, Samantha Curtis of Bristol, Alyssa Landrette of New Britain, Austin Landrette of Fort Meyers Fla., and Nicholas Bohlen of Vero Beach Fla.

She worked at Bussman Manufacturing in Connecticut for several years before relocating to Sandusky, Ohio and eventually to Wellington, Fla. There she worked at Strathmore Bagels & the International Equestrian Show. She retired in 2017.
