Patricia Ann Huett

February 7, 1936 ~ May 19, 2022 (age 86)


The time was February 7th, 1936, and the birth of Patricia Ann to the loving first-generation German couple Frank and Kathern Pfanenstiel.

The Pfanenstiel’s were devote Catholics and brought up their two daughters Patricia Ann and Norma Jean as such.

Pat met her husband as musicians in high school. They both played clarinet in the band and marched side by side in their school events. My father, George Huett, was two years older than Pat and was smitten by her charm and beauty.

They were married shortly after my father was honorably discharged from the Navy for medical reasons: Type One Diabetes. 

On September 22nd, 1954, the Huett family was born, their first child was born one year later on September 26th, 1955.

Patricia has three children: Bradley, Susan, and Russell.

As a liberated woman, Pat earned her Real Estate license in the late sixties and earned the position of manager at a very prestigious woman’s high-end dress shop, Lilly Rueben, in a new concept at the time: Shopping Malls. Cinderella City was the largest shopping mall in the country at the time in Englewood Colorado in the seventies.

A life-threatening stroke fell upon my mother on New Year’s Eve 1987 that would forever change her life.

As a stroke survivor, she suffered at the hands of this cruel trick of fate for thirty-three years as a testament of her strength, tenacity, will to live.

Her catholic faith was the bedrock of her survival and she prayed regularly for the strength to carry on, even in the worst of times.

Her passing should inspire us all that whatever life throws at us we must meet it with the strength of character that my grandparents instilled in Patricia Ann Pfannenstiel.

Her passing is NOT a time of sadness but a time of rejoicing for she had earned a penthouse suite in heaven!
