Patricia H Waldron

Patricia (Pat) H Waldron, 66, of Sturgeon Bay, passed away on April 10, 2024, at her beloved home in Jacksonport, with her loving family by her side. She was born June 29, 1957, in Chicago, IL, the daughter of Richard and Florence (Callaghan) Hyland. Pat grew up in the Beverly neighborhood on the south side of Chicago attending Christ the King primary school and later graduating from Mother McAuley Liberal Arts High School with the class of 1975. Upon graduation from high school Pat attended Bryman School where she received her Medical Assistant Certification. In 1978, Pat decided to head out west to grow up with the country, landing in Denver where she worked as a lab technician for the Bureau of Reclamation. It was during this time that she met her future husband, Tony, and together they took off on a 6-month backpacking trip in Europe, becoming engaged in Ireland. On December 30, 1981, they were united in marriage at Christ the King Church in Chicago. They began their life together in Fort Collins, Colorado where Pat put Tony through college while working for the Social Security Administration for 10 years. During that time, they purchased a small farm in Keenesburg, Colorado, where they would live for the next 30 years while raising their family. Pat was an entrepreneur at heart and started and operated several businesses throughout her life including a licensed daycare facility, a food catering business, and managing HyWal Farms with her family. In 1998, she went to work as a flight attendant for United Airlines where she worked for 10 years. Pat was on one of the last flights before the 9/11 tragedy occurred and was on the first wave of flights after this horrible event. Upon her retirement from United in 2010, she started an Organizing Business (before it was hip) and operated it until her retirement. One of her organizing encounters led her to her last job when she became the office manager at Pawnee Buttes Seed in Greeley, CO until her retirement in 2019. In 2016, Pat and Tony began their search for a retirement home in Door County, WI. In 2018, Pat found her dream home and they moved to Door County officially in 2019. It brought her much joy and peace to be able to spend her final days on the shores of Lake Michigan. Pat had an incredible green thumb and it showed in her beautiful house plants and gardens throughout the years. She was also an avid bird watcher and observer of astronomical events. Pat had a beautiful singing voice and pitch perfect hearing and rhythm. After years of suffering, she finally convinced her not so rhythmic husband to take up ballroom dancing lessons in 2010. They enjoyed this activity immensely until her passing. Of all her varied careers, her greatest achievement was raising her three children, giving them roots and wings, and watching them become productive citizens. They were all at her side during her passing. Pat will be missed by her devoted husband, Anthony "Tony"; daughters, Emily Waldron (Elise) of Cortez, CO; Sarah (Justin) Feld, grandson James Feld of Washburn, ND; son, Conor (Courtney) Waldron, granddaughter Chesney Waldron, grandson Wayne Waldron; sisters, Mary Ann Rowan, Nancy (Wil) Lawrence; brothers, Richard "Dick" (Kathy) Hyland, Christopher "Chris" Hyland, and numerous nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents; brother, John Hyland; brother-in-law, John Rowan; sister-in-law, Dianne Hyland; brother-in-law, David Waldron. Pat 's life will be honored with a memorial service held at Huehns Funeral Home, 1414 Michigan St., Sturgeon Bay, WI, on Saturday, April 27, 2024 at 11:00am. The family will be receiving friends and hosting a luncheon immediately after the service at Alexander's Restaurant at 3667 Hwy 42 in Fish Creek, WI. Donations may be made to Unity Hospice. Huehns Funeral Home in Sturgeon Bay is assisting the Waldron family. Expressions of sympathy, memories, and photos of Pat may be shared with her family through her tribute page at
