Patricia A. “Patty” Sirek, 60

Patricia A. “Patty” Sirek, age 60, of Elko, died peacefully on Wednesday, November 3, 2021 as a result of complications of Covid-19 at Northfield Hospital.   Patty was born on January 27, 1961 in New Prague to Richard F. and Eleanor A. “Ellie” (Svoboda) Sirek.  Patty graduated from New Prague High School and was a life-long resident of the Lonsdale/New Prague area.  Her heart was in the farm that she lived on with her mother and father.  Patty never turned down a task asked of her and worked with determination and energy.  She had various jobs, including as a custodian at New Prague High School, on the line at United Steel in Montgomery, and most recently at St. Patrick Tavern.

 Patty will be remembered for her kind and generous soul.  She was always willing to help others – whether it was taking care of animals, running errands, cooking a meal, or picking up treats.  Patty portrayed a selflessness throughout her life, even if it meant she went without.  Her smile lit up the room and she always had a hug and a kind word for everyone that she met. With a heart of gold, she was the ultimate people person and you knew that you had a friend for life when Patty met and embraced you! 

 She enjoyed trips to the lake, Jake’s, and any adventure she could find.  Patty could often be found in her chair, putting together puzzles with the T.V. on in the background or a good game of Bingo. She loved to socialize, volunteer, connect with others and share a good laugh. She lived for her nieces and nephews and dropped everything to spend time with them.  She lovingly cared for her mother and every other person who crossed her path.  Always positive and uplifting, Patty will be deeply, deeply missed by her family and friends.

 Patty is survived by her mother, Ellie Sirek of Elko; siblings, Bonnie Whiting of Havelock, NC, Sandy Rezac (fiancé, Paul Hein) of New Prague, Barb Condrey  (Bill Jollymore) of Lewiston, ID, Jake Sirek of Stewart, MN, Tom Sirek of Webster, Emil (Angie) Sirek of Webster, Bill (Amy) Sirek of Elko, Jerry (Lynda) Sirek of Elko; many nieces & nephews & all Patty’s special friends.

 Services are pending.  Patty requested no flowers or plants.
