Patricia Louise “Pat” Stullken, 87, passed away on Monday, April 21, 2014, in Wenatchee, WA. Pat was born on March 17, 1927, in St. Louis, MO. She was one of three daughters born to Benjamin and Marie Stullken.

Pat later took up residence in Southern California, where she began a career in the medical field until she retired. Pat eventually settled in Washington State in the Leavenworth and Cashmere area. Throughout her life, she continued to play her music, which was the love of her life.
