Pat was baptized at St. John Lutheran Church at Underwood, Iowa and her family lived near McClelland, Iowa. Pat's family moved to a farm northwest of Carson, Iowa and Pat attended St. Paul Lutheran Church in Treynor where she was confirmed on June 21, 1970. She graduated from Carson-Macedonia High School.
Pat married Steven Michael Marsh on June 16, 1973 at the home of her parents, Carl and Delores Schorsch. They established their home in Carson and would become the parents of three children, Michael, Amber, and Angela. Pat worked nine years as a secretary for Larry Allen at the Carson Machinery Auction Company. She became a professional licensed insurance agent and began her career with the Farm Bureau Insurance Agency in Oakland, Iowa and later the office in Council Bluffs. Farm Bureau recognized Pat's professional development with numerous awards. Her career took her to Omaha, Nebraska where she worked five years at Sitel Communications. Most recently, Pat was employed in Avoca, Iowa at the Z C Sterling Company.
Pat's enjoyments included fishing trips, eating crab legs, boating, and remodeling her home. Playing with her grandchildren was a highlight in her life. She was a very loving person with a big heart.

When a cure was not to be, she accepted the care of Hospice with Heart and entered the Oakland Manor on August 12, 2005.
