Patricia’s life began on March 17, 1938, in Kansas City, Kansas. She is the daughter of Don and Irene (Rindt) McCoy. Patricia was united in marriage to Richard Uhlig on September 26, 1959, at St. Paul Lutheran Church in Kansas City.
She was a special education schoolteacher for several years while her husband completed his medical school training and later was the office manager for his medical practice. Patricia was a faithful member of St. Paul Lutheran Church in Herington and had participated in ELCA women. She was a member of the P.E.O. Sisterhood and served on the Herington School Board for years. Patricia enjoyed owning her gift shop “OMG Gifts” in downtown Herington as much for the fun things she sold as for the chance to visit with everyone who came in the shop.
She and Richard enjoyed travelling and seeing the world together. Her greatest joy was her family especially her husband of 63 years Dr. Richard Uhlig, DO of Herington; her two children Jerri (Kurt) Kemble of Lawrence and Richard ( Dr. Heather) Uhlig of Pordenone, Italy; grandchildren Max Kemble and Hanna ( Mick) Dalton, both of Lawrence and Logan and Jett Uhlig of Pordenone, Italy; and her cousins Vonnie Neiderwimmer, Judy Russell, and Sharon Alexander; and family friend Fred Wenthe of Germany.
Patricia passed away on Wednesday July 19, 2023, at Herington Community Hospital. She is preceded in death by her parents.
