Patricia Alice Hayes Bricker
Patricia Alice Hayes Bricker, 72, of Chippewa Twp., died Thursday, August 8, 2019.
Born September 1, 1946 in Oak Park, IL, she was the daughter of the late Alfred R. and Isabelle G. Lester Hayes. Patty was the Valedictorian of Glenbard West High School in Glen Ellyn, IL, Class of 1964 and was a graduate of Bowling Green State University. She was an active member of the Chippewa United Methodist Church. Reading was a passion of hers and she loved her book club. Researching her family's genealogy also brought her joy. Arthritis slowed Patty down but she was supported by a close knit network of kind-hearted friends. She maintained a positive outlook despite her physical challenges.
Patty left the teaching profession to raise her sons and provide a warm and loving home for her family. She taught her sons to be good, hard-working people and was endlessly proud of their accomplishments. She loved to talk to strangers and always made friends on planes. Patty had a big heart that loved deeply and she will be sadly missed by her family and all of her friends.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her sister, Judy Specht.
She is survived by two sons and daughters-in-law, Jeffrey and Bonnie Bricker, Chicago, IL, Scott Bricker and Lena Andrews, Pittsburgh, and a sister and brother-in-law, Linda and Hans Baier, Ft. Lauderdale, FL.
