            Patricia L. Walchak, age 84, of Alpena passed away peacefully surrounded by her 6 children on Thursday, March 8, 2018, at Mid-Michigan Medical Center of Alpena, better known by Patricia as the Alpena General Hospital.

On December 26, 1953, Patricia married Richard Walchak at St. Gabriel Catholic Church in Black River, Michigan. He preceded her in death after 21 years together in April of 1974. Patricia was a wonderful daughter, mother, and sister. She was loved by all those who knew her, especially during her time as a cashier at the A & P store. She deeply loved her family and truly enjoyed working with the public. People still remember her for her bright smile and natural sweetness as they checked through her line. She loved embroidery, quilting, reading, bird watching and gazing out her backyard window. Patricia was a member of St. Bernard Catholic Church of All Saints Parish and will always be remembered for being kind and thoughtful and always ready to lend a hand to those who needed one.
