Patricia 'Pat' Pauline Cronk

TRAVERSE CITY — Patricia “Pat” Pauline Cronk, 74, of Traverse City, went to be with her Lord And Savior, Jesus Christ, on Sunday, Nov. 3, 2013, at the Grand Traverse Pavilions, surrounded by her loving family. Pat was born on July 5, 1939, in Traverse City, to the late Charles and Adeline (Wagner) DeLorme.

Pat’s faith was extremely important to her. She was a devout Catholic and a dedicated member of St. Francis Catholic Church for many years.

She was also a buyer for Milliken’s, worked for Oscar Meyer, TV 7&4 and KLT.

In her younger years Pat enjoyed both figure skating and dancing. Animals, listening to music and watching the Red Wings also brought great joy to Pat.

Pat thoroughly enjoyed being a mother and grandmother. Her family truly meant the world to her.

She will be deeply missed by all who knew her.

Surviving Pat are her children, Jeff Cronk, Jon Cronk and Rachel Cronk; grandchild, Noah Cronk; sister, Anita Upson; and many other loving family members and friends.

Pat was preceded in death by her parents; brother, Craig; sister, Charlene Wood; and former husband, Jack. A Mass of Christian Burial will take place at St. Francis Catholic Church on Tuesday, Nov. 12, 2013, at noon, with visitation held from 11 a.m. to noon.

Memorial contributions may be directed to the Cherryland Humane Society.
