Patricia M. Jensen, 85, of Palmyra, WI passed away on Saturday, October 30, 2021 at her home with her loving family by her side.

She was born on November 22, 1935 in Milwaukee, WI the daughter of Harry and Ruth (Eder) Dreblow. She grew up in the Milwaukee area and after graduating high school, she married Paul Gigl. The two were blessed with four children, Paul, David, Donna and James. The couple began their life together in Milwaukee and then moved out to Watertown, WI to raise their family.  Patricia and Paul would go on to enjoy over 50 years of marriage together until Paul passed away. Patricia later married Paul Jensen in Elkhorn, WI and the two enjoyed many years together as well. Patricia had many interests in her life. She owned a few of her own businesses over her working career. She definitely was not afraid to try new things. She enjoyed ice skating as a young woman, and then at the age of 72, she decided to start roller skating again. Patricia had an artistic side and enjoyed crocheting, painting and playing the organ. The thing that made her the happiest was being around her loving family. She greatly enjoyed spending time and bonding with her loved ones. Patricia was dearly loved and will be missed by those she leaves behind.
