Obituary

Patricia Anne Meszler (79), passed away after a brief illness with family members at her bedside March 23, 2016 in Leesburg FL. Pat was born in Little Falls January 21, 1937 to the late Francis and Anne Krug. A longtime resident of Herkimer, Pat married Lewie Meszler on April 21, 1957 at St. Francis De Sales Church. Through their marriage of nearly 59 years, they raised 9 children; Dan and wife Peggy of Abingdon MD, Nancy Collins of Troy, Dale and wife Lori of Waterville, Kathy of Delhi, Karen and husband Douglas (Charlie) Miller of Ohio, David and wife Robin of Guilderland, Darrin and wife Kim of Webster, Dennis and wife Patty of Apex, NC and Duane and wife Sue of Oklahoma City, OK. Pat’s extended family included her brother Francis along with brother and sister in-laws, Ray and Charlotte Meszler, Martha Meszler, Leonard Hayes and preceded in death by Clifton Meszler and Priscilla Hayes. In addition, she leaves 21 grandchildren, 3 great grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.

Pat enjoyed many friends and excelled in her career as a Mom. She attended every band concert, sporting event and musical production from pop warner football to HHS Marching Band where she took on the nickname of Mom Mezz. As her children grew older she entered the work force as a cashier at the Great American Supermarket and soon after took a job as a library aide in the Herkimer Central School District where she continued to influence many young lives in the village. As a Grandma, regardless of the distance, it became normal to find her in the audience at recitals, concerts, sporting events and graduations. Pat, Mom, Grandma Patty, Aunt Pat and Mom Mezz will be missed by many.

A remembrance service will be held at St. Francis De Sales Church in Herkimer at a later date.

    Pat was Avery good friend of both my Aunt Rita (Keddell) Turner, and my mother, Catherine (Kitty) Keddell Hadcock. I used to babysit for Pat & Louis's kids when I was in high school. I believe her Mom, Anne Krug, worked at Montgomery Wards with my Dad. Most recently, Pat often picked my mother up on Sunday's for Mass at St. Francis de Sales. Lots of memories of the Meszler family. RIP Pat.

    Mere words can not express the woman my grandmother was. I am so lucky to have had her in my life for so long, however it still isn't enough. Not a day will ever go by that I don't think of you Grandma and you will be with me always.

    Dear family, friends and neighbors,
    Pat was one of the first people to welcome Don and me as neighbors many years ago. She always had a smile and a laugh to share. Pat was a caring, loving lady and always ready to help others, while raising a fine family. I will miss not having her nearby and the many family events she made sure I was involved with.
    Rest in peace, dear Pat, my friend and neighbor.
