Doris Nancy Patz Obituary, Death – 78-year-old Doris Nancy Patz, of Pound, On Christmas day, December 25, 2022, Jesus welcomed Nancy into his presence with open arms at her home. At that time, Nancy’s husband of 59 and a half years, Clifford, was holding her hand. On May 11, 1944, she was delivered into this world by her late parents, Wilbert and Lucille (Krause) Broderick. She began her life as a young child and was responsible for doing chores on the family farm. She attended Reeds Hill School and Beaver School before finally graduating from Coleman High School in 1962 as a member of the school’s first graduating class.

She tied the knot with the man she would spend the rest of her life with, Clifford, on June 8, 1963, at First Baptist Church in Pound, where the couple had been members for their entire lives. Nancy was employed by Patz Corporation up until the time came when she had to devote the majority of her attention to raising her four sons. She had a strong desire to lend a hand to those in need and to give something back to the community, so she joined the Coleman Area Rescue Squad. It was completely natural for her to do so.

She was always there for anyone who was hurt, sick, required someone to bandage them up, or simply needed someone to talk to when they needed it. When the Coleman Parents Wrestling Club was first getting started, Nancy was one of the original founders. She took her sons and their friends to wrestling tournaments all over the state of Wisconsin and Upper Michigan. She even loaded them all into the motor home with her husband and drove as far as Iowa, Minnesota, and North Dakota. However, as her children grew older, it became clear that this wasn’t enough for them. She was very involved in the community and pursued a number of different projects at the same time.

Nancy, along with her friends Gail McMahon and Judy Mursau, established Creative Cooks. Together, they ran a successful catering business in Marinette and Oconto County for a number of years. Nancy was one of the co-founders of the company. She was an avid outdoorswoman who enjoyed deer hunting, fishing, and being in nature. Nancy She particularly relished the time she could spend with her family.

During the many years that they spent attending farmers markets in Wisconsin and Illinois, Nancy was a co-owner of Patz Maple and Honey alongside her husband, and the company simply could not have achieved the level of success that it did without her. Over the course of so many years, she had the opportunity to interact with a large number of merchants and made a large number of friends who will last a lifetime Still, right up until the end of her life, she enjoyed nothing more than taking messages and jotting down orders. Despite how busy she had been over the past few years, she made sure to take a vacation with her husband every January, and the two of them were able to visit a lot of different places.

Surviving are her loving husband Clifford, 4 sons, Duane (Cheryl), Craig (Diane), Michael, and Mark (Lisa), grandchildren, Derek (Taylor) Patz, Mitchell (Shyanne) Patz, Hunter Patz, Gunnar (Katie) Patz, Hope Patz, Kayla (Jason) Cox, Tanner (Kayla) Schram, great grandchildren, Aliya Cox, Bailee Cox, Vienna Schram, and Gryffin Schram; 2 brothers James (Carol) Broderick, David (Kris) Broderick and a sister-in-law, Margaret Broderick.
