Patricia Niehaus, age 89, of Guttenberg, died Sunday, March 21, 2021, at Guttenberg Care Center. She was born the daughter of George and Pearl (Chettinger) Niehaus on Oct. 11, 1931, in Garnavillo.


Pat attended 10 years of her education at St. Joseph’s Catholic School but then transferred and graduated from the Garnavillo High School. On Sept. 19, 1949, she was united in marriage with Robert Niehaus at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Garnavillo. Together, they farmed for several years north of Garnavillo and were blessed with four children.


Pat could often times be found spending time with her family, cooking meals for them while her sons worked in the fields on the family farm, or just baking up some sweet treats for her grandchildren. On Sundays, she could be found in church, as faith was very important to her. Pat worked as the secretary and bookkeeper for the family farm operation.


Patricia’s memory will forever be cherished by her children, her daughter, Dr. Cheryl (Bill) Northey of Corralitas, Calif., three sons, Daniel (Janice) Niehaus of Garnavillo, Dr. Michael (Julie) Niehaus of Burlington and Mark (Kelly Hefel) Niehaus of Elkader; 11 grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren, plus one on the way; and one brother, Dr. James (Jill) Auer of Milwaukee, Wis.


Patricia was preceded in death by her parents; her husband Robert in 2009; three brothers, Ted, Fr. Robert and Dr. George Auer; and brother-in-law Virgil Niehaus.


Arrangements are being handled by Tuecke-Allyn Funeral Home, Guttenberg.


Burial will be held at a later date.
