Send Condolence

With great sadness the family of Patrice Mae Rozeske, aged 63, announces her unexpected passing on April 3rd, 2019 in Eau Claire, WI. 

She was born on July 7, 1955 in Glencoe, MN to Vernon and Betty (Bergmann) Wroge. Pat married Robert (Bob) Rozeske (deceased, 2001) on November 16, 1974. Pat worked for 30 years at Club’s Choice Fundraising where she wore many hats but found joy in sales. Pat is survived by her mother Betty and brother David (Lori) Wroge; children Mary Elizabeth (Adam) Rumphol, Robert Rozeske II, Thomas (Jordan) Rozeske, Madeline (Thomas) Stellick; and granddaughters Amelia and Eleanor Rumphol. Pat had an amazing family including nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, in-laws, and crazy cousins. Pat is proceeded in death by her father (Vernon), sister (Susan Mueller), brother (Daniel Wroge), and nephew (Nicholas Wroge). 

Known for her welcoming, engaging, and attentive personality, Pat was easy to smile and always eager to spend time to socialize with her loved ones. Pat had an outgoing spirit exemplified by her travels with family across North America and Europe. During the summer months Pat would spend weekends at her cabin in Minnesota where she loved relaxing beside the lake admiring the sunset. At home she enjoyed gardening and took pride in her flowers and unexpected pumpkins. She kept family and friends close even when they were miles away with inviting conversation. Pat was always a willing participant and her open-mindedness brought her many enriching experiences that made being in her company an absolute pleasure. 

Her family and friends will dearly miss her spunk and style, calmness and caring, love and loyalty that warmed the hearts of everyone she met. Pat will be greatly missed but we are all comforted that Pat and Bob are reunited.

A memorial service will take place at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, April 9, 2019 at Hulke Family Funeral Home with Pastor Mark Schulz officiating.  Memorial visitation will take place at the funeral home on Tuesday from 4 pm until the time of service. Inurnment will take place at a later date in the Lakeview Cemetery in Eau Claire.

    Dear Tom and Family,
    May the comfort of the Lord be with you all as you go through this difficult time. I hope God's promises and all the memories your family has to share will bring you peace and rest in the days, months, and years to come.
    I remember talking with you after you lost your father at such a young age and I shared that I had lost my father when I was seven years was the memories that I hung to then and even now that makes me smile when I think of my dad even today, remember your loved ones and know that God is faithful Tom <
    In case you forgot, I was your 6th grade teacher and I remember you well. You were a great kid and a blessing to have in my class. I wish I could have made it to the visitation and had a chance to visit with you, but know that I have you and your family in my heart and prayers.

    God knows...
    God cares...
    and so do I.
    Peace and prayers Mike (Mr. Reetz:)

    You were the Thelma to my Louise, the common sense to my off the wall ideas, and the best friend a woman could ask for. You always backed me up, and gave me confidence whenever I was unsure, your kind words and inspiration I will carry in my heart until we meet again. God blessed me so by putting you in my life I will be forever grateful <3
