Patricia Ann Sampson

Pat Sampson found eternal peace, joy and comfort on the beautiful spring morning of May 21, 2022 at the age of 90. She was born on March 3, 1932 in Fond du Lac to the late Earl and Marie (Steffes) Duley.

Pat was a graduate of St. Mary’s Springs Academy. On November 23, 1950 she married Cecil Sampson at St. Mary’s Church. Pat spent 30+ years working for St. Agnes Hospital. After retirement, she continued to work as a patient sitter providing comfort to those in need of a friend.

Pat enjoyed laughing and socializing with friends. She adored her grandchildren and her great grandchildren and always liked to hear the latest stories about them. She looked forward to her regular card games and keeping up with the Milwaukee Brewers. She enjoyed crocheting and leaves behind some wonderful quilts for her family to enjoy.

Survivors include her daughter Patty (Jim) DeJong of Fond du Lac; two grandchildren, Ben DeJong and his two sons, Logan and Parker, of Wauwatosa; and Juliana (Chris) Linssen and her two daughters, Harper and Paisley, of Sun Prairie; her sister, Shirley Mueller of Fond du Lac, her brothers, Jim Duley and Tom Duley (Lorna); nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends. Pat was preceded in death by her parents and her husband. She was one of 11 children. Several brothers and sisters have preceded her in death.

Pat’s family would like to send a special thank you to the wonderful and caring staff at Lakeview Place in Fond du Lac which was Pat’s home for nearly eight years.

Following cremation, private family services will be held at Calvary Cemetery at a later date.

Memorials can be sent to St. Mary’s Springs Academy in Pat’s name.
