Patricia Oller

Services for Patricia L. Oller, who passed away Friday at St. Luke Living Center in Marion, will be 1 p.m. today at Valley United Methodist Church.

Patricia’s life began July 4, 1929, in Anthony. She was the daughter of William Hobart and Bernice Blanche (Huffman) Reneau.

She was a 1947 graduate of Medicine Lodge High School. Right after graduation, Patricia was united in marriage to Robert W. Oller on May 24, 1947, in Hutchison.

She and Robert moved to Marion in 1962 where they lived out their lives.

Patricia worked for Duckwalls Five and Dime store, then moved on to working for the city of Marion as deputy city clerk. Pat was also manager of the Hilltop Manor in Marion for several years.

Growing up in the Depression taught Pat many valuable lessons which she passed onto her children. She was an excellent seamstress, loved to cook and cater for occasions, a skilled cake decorator, and took pride in caring for her family.

Pat enjoyed socializing with friends in the Neo-century club, her card clubs, and bowling. She enjoyed traveling and stayed active throughout her life.

Her greatest joy was her family, which includes daughters Linda (and husband Albert) Holub of Culbertson, Nebraska, Rita (and husband Tim) Zulkoski of Caldwell, and Neva (and husband Gale) Cooper of Marion; nine grandchildren; numerous great-grandchildren; and two great-great-granddaughters; three sisters, Mary Ann Rynerson of Pratt, Maurita Denney of Camp Verde, Arizona, and Sue Felke of Stafford; sister-in-law Rose Ann Reneau of Wichita; and several nieces and nephews.

Her parents, husband, brothers Dean and Bill Reneau, sister-in-law Bessie Reneau, brothers-in-law Max Rynerson and John Felke, and son-in-law Donald Smith preceded her in death.

She will be laid to rest in Marion Cemetery.

Memorial contributions in Patricia’s name may be directed to St. Luke’s Foundation or Valley United Methodist Church. Please sign her online guestbook and leave a memory of Patricia at
