Patricia Ann Hannan was born on November 5, 1942 in Waterloo, Iowa to parents Alvin and Mildred (Chase) Buehner.  She attended St. John’s Catholic School and then Columbus High School in Waterloo.  On July 16, 1960 Pat was united in marriage with Wayne Hannan at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Oelwein.  They later divorced.  She was employed in Housekeeping and retired from Mercy Hospital in Oelwein in 2007.

Pat enjoyed puzzles, playing Scrabble and cards, watching Hallmark and Lifetime channel movies and Forensic Files.  She also enjoyed cooking and baking, and time in her garden.  She will be remembered for her sassiness, wit and humor.  Pat had a big heart and unsurpassed generosity.  She was a second mother to many family and friends.  She will be dearly missed by all who knew, and continue to love her.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her sister Judith Nie (1998); her ex-husband Wayne Hannan (2009); her son Jerry Hannan (2012) and her son-in-law Michael Yam (2014).
