Patricia Ann “Patty” (Scott) Klug
Patricia Ann “Patty” (Scott) Klug, 77 Warsaw went home to her Lord and Savior on Thursday August 11, 2016 during sunrise at her beloved Chapman Lake home. She was born on April 28, 1939 to George and Adelaide (Bilas) Scott in Birmingham, Michigan.
Patty was a graduate of Dryden High School, Dryden, Michigan. On October 24, 1957 she married Edwin “Ed” Klug in Sacred Heart Catholic Church, Imlay City, Michigan.
They started their lives together in Dryden Michigan, where they were blessed with having six children. After Ed’s job transferred the family to Bremen Indiana in 1963, the family lived on a farm until 1975. They moved to Chapman Lake (Warsaw) where the family quickly made this area home with lifelong friendships and with Patty becoming known as a second Mom to her children’s friends and “Grammie” to not only her own grandchildren but to many others.
Pat was a well-known greeter at Walmart for thirteen years, or what she lovingly referred to as her Walmart family. Her passions in life were her loud and large fun loving family, living on Chapman Lake, boat rides to the sandbar and enjoying the beautiful sunrises. Her love of having family memories made at Thanksgiving and Christmas gatherings and all those special backyard Chicken Cook -Offs and parties that the Klugs were well known for, made her life complete.
