Pat was born in Bismarck, ND to George and Ann Schlabach. She grew up in Driscoll, ND, and after high school went to business school in Fargo. She lived in Westby, MT for many years and then she moved to The Dalles, OR in 1973. There she was an active member of Gateway Presbyterian Church until 1980.
In 1980, Pat married Earl Listebarger, and not long after they moved to Blaine, WA where she lived the rest of her days.
Pat loved her garden and her crafts, and she loved to sing and dance. She also loved thrift stores, especially Value Village, enjoying the hunt of the perfect treasure.
She is survived by her husband of 34 years Earl; her children from a previous marriage; Mike (Vicki) Kittelson of Westby, MT, Mark Kittelson of Havre, MT and Shelley (Mike) Telfer of The Dalles, OR. Pat is also survived by Earl’s children; her numerous grandkids and great grandkids; two sisters, Jan Martin of Cannon Beach and Barb Ness of Houston, TX, and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents, sisters Lois and Betty and her brother Rex.
Pat will be remembered for her love of family and for everyone she knew. She will be remembered especially for her love for her Jesus. She will be forever missed and forever in our hearts!
A memorial service in The Dalles was held on Saturday, June 7 at Gateway Presbyterian Church. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to The American Cancer Society, which was always close to her heart.
