Patricia Kibbel Obituary

Patricia Elnora Kibbel (Bundick) age 70, of Spencer, WI, passed away late Monday, January 1, 2024, at Marshfield Medical Center in Marshfield WI, with her family by her side.

A funeral service will be held 11:00 AM Monday, January  8, 2024, at Trinity Lutheran Church on Clark Street in Spencer. Visitation will be held at Hansen-Schilling Funeral Home in Spencer on LaSalle Street from 1:00 PM until 4:00 PM on Sunday, January 7, 2024, and again one hour prior to service on Monday at Trinity Lutheran Church. Burial will take place at Trinity Lutheran Cemetery in Spencer after the service with a lunch to follow at the church.

Patricia was born April 22, 1953, the daughter of Vernon M. Bundick  and Audrey V. Bundick (Andersen) in Milwaukee, WI. She attended Little Wolf High School in Manawa, WI, later completing her GED. On December 16, 1972, Patricia was united in marriage to the love of her life, Ernst H Kibbel, at Trinity Lutheran Church in Spencer, WI. They were a member of Trinity Lutheran Church and blessed with 51 years of marriage. Patricia and Ernst worked together farming, running their business, raising their family and building a future for their children, making her children and grandchildren a priority in her life. She was also employed at Figis, The Convalescent Center (Marshfield Health Services), and the Marshfield Cannery during her early years of marriage.

Patricia loved crafting projects, talking hours about her current project, everything from painting, calligraphy, jewelry making, embroidery, crocheting, sewing, and quilting. She also enjoyed sitting under her maple tree listening to the birds and wind chimes while viewing her beautiful flowers and watching her grandchildren play. Patricia cherished teaching her children about the joy of cooking, baking, and preserving food from her garden and farm. Patricia enjoyed reading and watching movies in her downtime. She was also a talented cake decorator and designer. One of Patricia’s largest accomplishments was designing and building a new home with her family.

Patricia is lovingly survived by her husband: Ernie Kibbel; children: Ernst P Kibbel of Spencer, WI; Christina R Mitchell-Leitner (Ryan) of Wisconsin Rapids, WI; Cheryl Korslin of Arpin, WI; Constance Hoernke (Lee) of Spencer, WI. Grandchildren: Hunter Korslin, Kaden Korslin, Karly Kibbel, Denver Korslin, Isaac Hoernke, Carson Kibbel, Morgan Korslin, Aaron Hoernke, Mathew Hoernke, and Erica Korslin. Siblings: Barbara Gaffney, Vernon Bundick, Raymond Bundick, Edith Meyer, Carol Bundick, Robert Bundick, Deanna Andersen, Diana Jarvis, and Timothy Bundick. She is further survived by Oliver, her faithful canine companion and many extended family members. She will truly be missed.

Patricia is preceded in death by her parents: Vernon and Audrey Bundick; parents in law: LaVern and Dorothy Kibbel; as well as siblings: Judy Johnson, Mary Koricar, and James Bundick; and her son in law: Eric Korslin.
