Patty was born on May 13, 1967, the daughter of Verlyn and Judy (Babler) Adamson. She played trombone in the band at New Glarus High School (class of ’85) and while attending U.W. LaCrosse.

She had many interests including water sports (especially kayaking), was an avid garage saler, playing Wheel of Fortune with Grandma Adamson, music (especially Rod Stewart), and loved her cats, Sweetie Pie and Princess.

Horeb; a sister, Sandy (Paul) Butters of Belleville; brother, Jim (Wendy) Adamson of Chipppewa Falls; four special nieces, Emily and Claire Butters, Regan and Peyton Adamson; several aunts, uncles, and cousins; and a special friend, Greg Stewart of Brodhead. She was preceded in death by a brother, Doug; and her maternal and paternal grandparents.
