Patricia Rogalla

October 19, 1932 — October 19, 2021


Patricia C Rogalla, 89, Wausau, died peacefully at Aspirus Wausau Hospital, Friday, June 18, 2021.  Pat was born January 29, 1932 to the late Maurice and Agnes (Braatz) Corrigan in Aurora, WI.  She grew up in Kingsford MI, graduating from Kingsford High School in 1950.  Patricia and Donald were joined in marriage June 27, 1953 and were happily married until the time of his death in 2006.

Pat enjoyed knitting and crocheting, and sharing the fruits of her labors with family, friends, and those in need.  She donated a countless number of hats, mittens, dish cloths and prayer shawls to the community.  She was an accomplished pianist and organist, playing for the church and providing music for many of the local nursing home residents.  Her Christmas music was always a special treat.

Pat and her husband Don owned and operated Suburban Drug in the Wausau area for 30 years, and Skyline Farms raising Ginseng and Christmas Trees.  She enjoyed ballroom dancing with Don for many years.  Pat enjoyed spending time with her family and friends.  She and Don raised their family at their farm, spending many happy hours there with their children and grandchildren.  Family gatherings, anniversary celebrations, and “horseshoe” parties were a regular occurrence.

Survivors include two sons, Dan (Betty) Rogalla, Wausau, and Don (Tom Hvizdak) Rogalla, Edgar; two daughters, Kay (Glen) Tessmer, Wausau, and Karen (Ken) Matushak, Wausau; six grandchildren, Keri Rogalla, Morgan (Jay) Ball, Amanda Keene, Jamie (J.T.) Lyons, Sheila Cox, Kyle (Sara) Matushak; 11 great grandchildren; Taylor, Kalvin, Mackenzie, Vincent, Otto, Lane, Ava, Austin, Emma, Charlotte, Sawyer; many nieces, nephews, and friends; and her very loyal and faithful dog Kole.

She was preceded in death by her infant son Ronald Paul, husband Donald, siblings Shirley, Jane, Tom and George.
