Patricia Anne (Bell) Blume

August 28, 1934 ~ May 13, 2019 (age 84)

Patricia Anne Blume, 84, of Burlington, passed away Monday, May 13, 2019, at the Great River Klein Center in West Burlington.

Born August 28, 1934, in Keokuk, she was the daughter of Ralph Freeman and Inez Evelyn Peden Bell. She was raised by her mother and step-father Delbert L. Davison mostly in Clarinda, IA. On October 26, 1960, she married Wayne Alan Blume in Maryville, MO. Wayne passed away on April 13, 2018.

Patricia was a homemaker, worked for an oral surgeon in Omaha, Nebraska and at the Clarinda Mental Health Institute. She owned and operated Wayne's Roller Land for several years.

She was a graduate of Clarinda High School. 

Known as 'Grandma Pat' by the ones she loved, Patricia was a fantastic cook, making her mints and family-favorite scalloped corn. She was also a great baker, especially baking themed birthday cakes for her grandkids. She enjoyed the history of her family and life, and told many stories about herself and her upbringing, and held on to several family heirlooms. Being the proud grandmother she was, she loved to brag about her grandkids to anyone who would listen. She was a seamstress, making several outfits, as well as crocheting hats and sweaters. She adored her family above all else, keeping an eye out for everyone on Facebook, and getting everyone together for family picnics. Nothing made her happier than when the family was all together.

Survivors include her daughter, Julie Anne Coleman of Burlington; daughter-in-law, Kathy (Mike) Blume-Hoschek of Burlington; son-in-law, Gary Coleman of Burlington; four grandchildren, Heidi (Derek) Boyd, Amy Blume, Garret Coleman, Abbey Coleman; three great-grandchildren, Justin, Austin, and Sydney Boyd; sister-in-law, Ellen Bell of Polk City, FL; brother-in-law, Wesley Blume of Clarinda, IA; several nieces and nephews; and one great-great-grandchild on the way.

Besides her husband, Patricia was preceded in death by one son, Delbert Joe, her parents, and one brother Ralph Bell.
