Patricia Anne Tollari

Patricia Anne Tollari, 83, who was born on March 2, 1932, in Redfield, IA, passed away peacefully on December 20, 2015 at Perry Lutheran Home after a long battle with Alzheimer's. Patricia, or Patty as she was fondly called, was the best mother any one could have asked for. She gave without asking for anything in return. She would do anything for family without questions, judgement or grudges later. We have heard so many stories in the last couple of days about how our mother helped so many people financially or otherwise to get past hurdles in their lives. She put family first. Everything she did was for her kids, grandkids and husband first. She could keep you in line, but was quick to forgive and never let anything get in the way of family. She will be loved and missed by all the lives she touched. She never wanted much for wealth, just enough to provide for her family and raised all of us the same. Patty is survived by her four children; Rick (Cindy) Borst of Adel, IA, Charlene (Stuart) Jorgensen of Linden, IA, Dawn (Brian Lincoln) Kacher of Clairmont, FL, and Chris (Sarah) Tollari of Adel, IA; sisters Shirley Clarke of Altoona, IA, Linda Tollari of Des Moines, IA, Judy Bohnet of Lancaster, OH and one brother Arlo Dunbar of Council Bluffs, IA; 12 grandchildren, 14 great-grand children and many beloved nieces, nephews and a number of dear friends. She was preceded in death by her parents Frank and Hazel Dunbar; her husband and love of her life Donald Tollari; sisters Dolores Summy, Audrey Crabbs and Joyce Dunbar and a son Mark Anthony Tollari. No Services at this time are planned. Memorial contributions may be made to St. John's Catholic Church in Adel.Patricia Ann Tollari, 83, who was born on March 2, 1932, in Redfield, IA, passed away peacefully on December 20, 2015 at Perry Lutheran Home after a long battle with Alzheimer's.Patricia, or Patty as she was fondly called, was the best mother any one could have asked for.
