Patricia Lee Seiner
Patricia Lee (Cavanaugh) Seiner was born on March 6, 1948, in Storm Lake, Iowa, to Dale and Joyce (Glowczewsky) Cavanaugh. The third child of five Cavanaugh kids, Pat grew up on the farm befriending all kinds of animals. She was known for her patient and sweet demeanor, her ability to make anyone she encountered feel understood and valued, and her love for the Lord.
Graduating from Storm Lake St. Mary’s with the Class of 1966, Pat was well-liked by all. She went on to college at Mount Marty in Yankton, South Dakota, where she obtained her degree in 1970. A born caretaker, Pat went on to enjoy a career in nursing that never felt like a job to her. She truly loved working at Ophthalmology Limited, where she befriended doctors and patients alike.
Pat married Dennis Seiner in 1994 and assisted Denny in raising five children. Denny and Pat recently celebrated 25 years of marriage. Pat was a devout Catholic all her life and an example of Christian love to all who knew her. She really enjoyed Bible Studies. Her favorite Bible verse was Isaiah 40:11; “He tends his flock like a shepherd. He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart.” Pat often shared this verse with others during difficult times.
Despite her medical concerns, Pat brought joy to her family and friends. Pat left this world a better place. On December 15, 2019, she returned home to her Lord where heaven is more alive now with her presence.
Left to cherish her memory are her loving and devoted husband: Denny; children: Ellie (Chad) Roza, John (Cynthia) Seiner, Mike Seiner, Anna (Drew) Geraets, and Rachael (Jay) VanDerWerff; 10 beautiful grandchildren; siblings: Nancy Bittner, Jan Logan, Tim (Peg) Cavanaugh, and Julie (Steve) Hofmeyer; and many nieces and nephews. God Bless and keep Patricia Lee Cavanaugh Seiner. May she walk forever in the sunshine she spread. In lieu of flowers, consider donating to The Banquet or charity of your choice.
