Patricia Sue Koehler, 75, of The Villages, FL, was surrounded by her family as she passed peacefully into eternal life on February 13, 2021. Patricia grew up in Levittown, NY, spending most of her years in East Islip, NY, before moving to Florida in retirement. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, cousin, and friend to all who knew her.
An artistic spirit, Patricia had a long career working in public education and loved to paint, golf, bowl, take cruises, and spend time with her family. She also loved Christmas, the Florida Keys, butterflies and sunflowers. With a paintbrush she could make the simplest things look beautiful. Her smile left a mark on everyone she met.
She is survived by her husband of 57 years, John Koehler; children Christine Murphy (Jim Murphy), Robert Koehler (Solongo Koehler), and Kevin Koehler (Kim Koehler); grandchild Willa Koehler and many nieces, nephews, cousins and treasured friends. They will all miss her dearly. Patricia was preceded in death by her son John Michael Koehler.
Arrangements are being handled by Baldwin Brothers Funeral & Cremation Society. A memorial mass is scheduled at St. Timothy Catholic Church in The Villages for April 14 at 8:30 am. The mass will be streamed on YouTube.
In lieu of flowers, please consider a memorial donation in Patricia’s name to Cornerstone Hospice, 601 Mariposa Way, The Villages, FL 32162.
