  7. Our condolences and deepest sympathy to the Uhl families. I’ll always remember her for her peanut butter pie she used to make for Glatts. Boy scouts were a blast with her! God Bless. Tom and Sis

  8. I am so sorry to hear about Patty. She was my Brownie girl scout leader, made my wedding cake with daisies. I loved it. Saw her for many years at cub scout events when my son Ernie was in scouts and enjoyed seeing her at the Sportsmen’s when Ernie was there for day camp for the week with scouts

    She was a lovely lady inside and out and I greatly enjoyed talking with her.

    She will certainly be missed.

    RIP Patty until we meet again 💕
    Love and prayers to all her family

    Thanks for your many years of service to Kersey 😊
