Patty Plasters

d. October 12, 2011

Patty Jean Plasters, 62, of Stella, NE, died at St. Elizabeth?s Hospital in Lincoln on October 3, 2011 after a brief illness. She was preceded in death by her parents, Muriel (Peterson) and Jack Farno Plasters. She is survived by her aunt, Helen Plasters Nemzek; her cousins, Laura French, Jean Nemzek-Hamlin and Bob Nemzek; two indoor cats, Amber and Pearl; and outdoor cats too numerous to mention.

Patty was born in Kearney, NE and moved to Stella, her father?s hometown, as a toddler. She graduated from Stella High School and the University of Nebraska/Lincoln. She worked for the Southeast Consolidated High School until she retired (Go, Mustangs!).

An avid collector and keeper of family history, Patty travelled with her father to many cemeteries in southeast Nebraska where the various branches of the family are buried. She was proud to be descended from Angelina Cole, Nebraska?s first public school teacher. Patty was an active member of the Stella Research Club, the Garden Club, the Stella Community Church Adult Sunday School and Circle.

Her greatest love and passion was animals, from pigeons to raccoons and her cousin?s dog Sofie, but always and most especially cats. She was seldom seen without a cat on her lap or twirling around her ankles as she walked downtown.

The family sends heartfelt thanks to all of the loving and loyal people in Stella who enabled Patty to remain independent and productive up to the final days of her life: Kathy Davis, Vicki Darnell, Jackie Uhri, Elaine Wheeler, the Banks cousins and many others.

Services will be on Wednesday, October 12 at 10:30 a.m. at the Stella Community Church with graveside services at the Stella Cemetery. Memorials preferred to the Stella Cemetery Association or to Hearts United for Animals in Auburn, NE.
