She was born March 23, 1934 in Omaha, Nebraska to the late C. Vincent and Irene R. (Simmons) Keairnes. Patricia was a devoted, committed, and loving mother, sister, and grandma whose visual art filled her with joy. Gardening and bird watching brought her to life. Queen Bee of the Tribolet clan, she was a fierce life force, strong, and brave woman. Patricia taught us all to love nature, take care of family, and that it's never too late in life to have a new beginning. Pat loved her children unconditionally from the day they were born until her last breath. Surviving are her children, Susan (Dave) Canady of Albion, Pam Holt of New Haven and Jim Tribolet of Chicago; grandchildren, David (Susan) Simpson of Lehigh Acres, FL, Kelly (Daniel Tolomay) Holt of New Haven, Theresa Simpson of Fort Wayne, and Daniel Osweiler of New York, NY; and sister, Judy (Roger) Miller. In Addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her son, Thomas Tribolet; and brother, Ron Keairnes.
