Patricia Ann Neary, daughter of Cletus and Maureen (Mulroney) Oliver, was born June 28, 1927. She attended St. Maryís Catholic School graduating in 1945.

On June 19, 1947 Patricia was united in marriage to Robert Leo Neary in Emmetsburg, Iowa. To this union six children were born.

Pat was employed at Palo Alto County Bank before raising her family. She was a member of Holy Family Parish in Emmetsburg. She was also a member of the Palo Alto County Hospital Auxiliary Bridge Club and the Nevada Ladies. Pat enjoyed the Palo Alto County Bank ladies group that met together.

Pat was an avid sports fan. She didnít care what team was playing or what sport was being played. If there was more than one game on T.V. at a time she would flip channels and keep track of two or three games in one night. Pat also loved baking and being in the kitchen. She volunteered at the Catholic School for many years.
