SUNBURY -- Patricia Ann Conrad, 72, of Sunbury, was taken into the healing arms of God at 4:05 a.m. Tuesday, March 30, 2010, at Sunbury Community Hospital. She died peacefully in her sleep.

She was born Oct. 24, 1937, in Trevorton, a daughter of the late Walter and Kathryn (Slanina) Tetkoskie. On Sept. 26, 1959, in St. Patrick's Catholic Church, Trevorton, she married James W. Conrad, who survives.

She was a 1955 graduate of Trevorton High School.

In her younger life, she was employed at Shroyer's Dress factory, Shamokin, and Johnny's Spaghetti Bar, Sunbury.

Patricia was an avid fan of the Philadelphia Phillies, Philadelphia Eagles and NASCAR legend Dale Earnhardt and Dale Earnhardt Jr. She was a devoted wife, mother, sister and grandmother. Pat will always be remembered for her wit and subtle sense of humor.

In addition to her husband, she is survived by two daughters and sons-in-law, Theresa and Earl Norman, of Marysville, and Carol Ann and Bruce Weikel, of Sunbury; one son, James Conrad, at home; two grandchildren, Chrissy Arnold, of San Francisco, Calif., and Steven Weikel, of Sunbury; one sister and brother-in-law, Rosann and Clarence Moses, of Sunbury; and nieces and nephews. She enjoyed a special relationship with her niece, Denise Wert, of Duncannon. She will be missed by her pet dogs, Sparkey and Princess, and her pet cats, Ralphie and Miss Mittens, who were her constant companions during her illness.

A memorial service will be held at 2:30 p.m. Saturday in St. Luke's Evangelical Lutheran Church, Catawissa Avenue and Reagan Street, Sunbury, with the Rev. Christoph Teille officiating.

A private burial will be held at a later date at the convenience of the family.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Carol Weikel, 424 N. Fourth St., Sunbury, PA 17801, to assist the family with funeral expenses.

Arrangements were made by the David T. Zweier Funeral Home, 157 Chestnut St., Sunbury.
