Patricia was born on June 5, 1939 in Deer Creek as the daughter of the late Christian and Angarose (Wilfuhr) Peeters. She attended grade school in Deer Creek, then went to school in Clintonville and graduated as the Valedictorian in 1957. After graduation, Pat worked as a secretary at the Clintonville Telephone Company, then moved to Milwaukee with close friend Judy Dilly where she worked as a secretary for the Miller Brewing Company. On May 9, 1959 Pat was united in marriage David Louis Pues at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Bear Creek.
