Patricia "Patty" Roloff

July 4, 1930 ~ February 26, 2017 (age 86)
Patricia "Patty" Roloff, 86, of Eureka, formerly of Peoria and East Peoria, passed away at 10:35 am Sunday, Feb. 26, 2017 at Select Post Acute Care in Eureka.
She was born July 4, 1930 in Pekin, IL to Joseph E. and Mary K. Murray Bishop. She married Albert E. Roloff in Peoria on Dec. 31, 1948. He preceded her in death on Nov. 29, 1994. She was also preceded in death by her parents; first grandchild, Jason Michael Lippert; one brother and one sister.
She is survived by three children, Albert L. (Sandy) Roloff of Sycamore, Kathryn J. (Jim) Lippert of Morton, Jody L. (Rick) Tockes of East Peoria; 10 grandchildren, Matt Lippert, Nick (Kelly) Lippert, Katie (Kevin) Beale, Joe (Gail) Roloff, Betsy, Tim and Elena Roloff, Tricia (Josh) England, Ricky (Whitney) Tockes, and Randy Tockes; 11 great-grandchildren; and her lifelong best friend, Wanda Barrett who knew "the song in Patty's heart" and sang it to her when her memory failed.
Patty worked for a brief time at Cilco, after she got married. She was a homemaker and grandma who loved her grandchildren. She even had a bumper sticker on her car that said, "Ask me about my grand babies!" She loved keeping them overnight and making their favorite snacks and treats, and taking them to Forest Park Nature Center, Wildlife Prairie Park and the Peoria Heights Tower. They were her greatest joy. She was a former Brownie Leader, and few people knew that she was a very gifted artist. Her pencil sketches and water colors were amazing. Sadly, few remain.
Memorials may be made to the Alzheimer's Association, Community Workshop and Training Center, or Wildlife Prairie Park.
A funeral service for Patricia will be held at 3 pm Saturday, March 4, 2017 at Deiters Funeral Home and Crematory in East Peoria. Visitation will be from 1 to 3 pm Saturday at the funeral home prior to the service. Cremation rites will be accorded.
