To Betty, Dave and all of Pattys family, I am so sorry to hear about Patty's passing. You all know I have known her and most of you all my life, and worked with her at FRC for years. Not to mention all the good times at the VFW and laughs we had. I will really miss her, and will keep you in my thoughts; I will not be able to get to Faribault unfortunately. David Fiebiger

To all the Kniefel Family, you may not remember me, but I practically grew up at your house in Medford. I was a very good friend of Christine's, Karla Witzke. When I came across Patty's obituary, it saddened me to read of her, but than it also brought back so many wonderful memories of Christine and I! I pray that your loss will be lightened by the memories of Patty. Peace to the entire "Kniefel family".
