Patricia A. Ward, age 79, of Mukwonago, WI passed away on Thursday, August 12, 2021 at East Troy
Patricia was born on June 21, 1942 in South Milwaukee, WI the daughter of John and Stephie (Uszynski) Plevak. She
grew up in Milwaukee and on March 12, 1965 she married Donald A. Ward in Waukegan, IL. Don and Pat
would go on to enjoy over 55 years of marriage together until Don’s passing earlier this year. The Lord
blessed Patricia and Don with a son, Michael. Pat worked in the healthcare and food industry for the
majority of her working years. Her favorite thing about any job was the people she came in contact with.
She was a very caring lady and interacting with others brought her great joy. Pat liked to take care of
people’s needs and she had a true servant’s heart. Above all else in Pat’s life was her love for her family.
She enjoyed spending time with her husband antiquing, enjoying a meal, or the occasional trip to Ho-
Chunk to gamble. Pat was a good lady and she will be greatly missed by those she leaves behind.
She is survived by: her loving son, Mike Ward of Mukwonago; her granddaughters, Amanda Ward of
Pewaukee, and Jennifer (Luke) Glass of Mukwonago; her dear great-grandson, Everett Jon Glass; her
best-friend, Kathy Hollis of Mukwonago; and her sister, Bernadine Pluta of West Allis. She is also
survived by a number of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
She is preceded in death by her parents, her husband, Donald, and her siblings, Walter and Elaine.
