Patricia G. Kingen, age 74, of Mill Village, passed away peacefully of natural causes at her home on Wednesday, June 18, 2014.
Born in Saegertown on March 4, 1940, Pat was one of six children of Stuart James Carr and Gertrude Manross Carr. She grew up in Saegertown and after meeting her husband, Richard K. Kingen, was married March 30, 1957 and moved to the Kingen family farm in Mill Village. Together they raised their family and operated the dairy farm.
Family was most important to Pat. She loved holidays and picnics, and any chance for her family to meet at the farm. And as a loving grandmother, she kept busy following the activities of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Pat enjoyed gardening and was a longtime member of the Mill Village Presbyterian Church.
Besides her husband Richard, who died December 1, 2003, she was preceded in death by a sister, Beatrice Brown, and two brothers, Nathan and Bob Carr.
Pat was the devoted mother of five children– Brenda Wurst and husband Randy of Union City, Debra Bernik and husband Sam of Lawrence Park, Dale Kingen and wife Amy of Mill Village, Tammy Bernik and husband Mike of Union City, and Timothy Kingen and wife Melissa of Mill Village; eight grandchildren– Bobbi, Danielle, Hayley and Rachel Kingen, Holly and Clint Wurst, and Morgan and Luke Kingen; four great-grandchildren; a sister, Virginia Kerr of Mill Village, and a brother, John Carr and his wife Fern of Summit Township; and many nieces and nephews.
