Pat was born on March 5, 1929 to Joseph and Franceska (Hoffman) Paul on a farm near St. Anthony. She married the love of her life, Steven Mildenberger, on Oct. 5, 1948 in St. Anthony.

Pat was one of a kind. She was strong, fearless, and brought fun everywhere she went. She gave and received smiles with everyone she met. She kept herself busy working as a self-employed painter/wood finisher and a well-loved cafe employee at Kist Livestock. Her passions in life included German baking and cooking, her faith, and being there for her family.

Pat will be deeply missed by her children, Terry (Debbie), Janet (Rich), Cheryl (Tory), Randy (Laura), and Jim (Mary); eight grandchildren; eight great-grandchildren; and a sister, Clara Markel.

Pat was preceded in death by her husband, Steve; parents; nine brothers; and two sisters.

In lieu of flowers the family requests that memorials be designated to St. Joseph Catholic Church, 108 3rd St NE, Mandan, ND 58554.
