Patricia Lynn Giles of Lake Geneva, WI lost a good fight to emphysema/COPD at the age of 75 on Tuesday, November 5th, 2019 at her residence. Pat was born in Chicago, IL on May 21, 1944 to Forbes and Viola (Dunnett) Giles. She lived in Rockford, IL and Lake Geneva, WI the majority of her young life, moved to Powers Lake, WI, then to Twin Lakes, WI, to Mesa, AZ and back to Lake Geneva where she resided until her passing. She graduated in 1962 from Badger High School in Lake Geneva, WI. In 1963, she married her high school sweetheart, Herb Otto and divorced in 1966. They had a son, William Otto. In 1970, she married Robert Olson from Elkhorn, WI. With him, he brought two children, Tammy and Jeff. They had a daughter together, Dana Lynn in 1972. They later divorced in 1990. Pat worked at a variety of places including Montgomery Ward, Chaney Instrument Co., Honey Bear Farm, Hillcrest Nursing Home, Speedo’s Café and retired from Citgo in Lake Geneva, WI where she worked for 23 years. Pat always had a love for arts and crafts and was extremely talented. She began oil painting when she was a freshman in high school. She loved all mediums from macramé, decoupage, sewing, crochet, drawing and doodling. You could often find her on her back patio burning images into cork and wood using a magnifying glass and the sun. For a year, she owned and operated her own arts and crafts store in Twin Lakes called Pat’s Hobby Horse. She has written some children’s stories which she always hoped to have published one day. Pat was preceded in death by her baby brother, mother, and father. She is survived by her two children, Bill (Brigitte) Otto and Dana (Mark) Erickson, brothers, Jim (Mary Olson) Giles, Bob (Kathy) Giles, a sister, Linda (Duane) Baerbock, grandchildren, Nicholas, Katrina, Brittan, Mykel and Abigail and great-grandson Grayson, many cousins, an aunt, nieces, a nephew, great nieces and some very special friends she has met along her journey. A gathering will be held on Saturday, November 9th, 2019 at Steinke-Lazarczyk Family Funeral Home (515 Center Street, Lake Geneva) from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. with a memorial service at 12 p.m. Burial will be at the Oak Hill Cemetery in Lake Geneva.
