Patricia Ann Hevier passed away peacefully on Monday, June 18, 2018 at the age of 78.

She was born on March 19, 1940 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin to John and Genevieve (Swantek) Jacobsen. She had three sisters, Mary Jane, Sandra, and Louise, and one brother, John.

On Nov. 7, 1959 she married the love of her life, Jan James Hevier at St. Michael’s in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. They had three children, Paul, Patrick and Christine.

In 1981, she and Jan moved to Florida and eventually found their home in Eastpoint where they had many friends, including her best friend, but more like a sister, Sandy Miller. She worked at the Apalachicola courthouse before retiring in 2005.

Pat will be remembered for her mad shopping skills with her friends, EVERY single weekend and regular happy hours hosted at her home.

But she will be mostly remembered for her beautiful smile, larger than life laugh, and loving heart.

Patricia is preceded in death by her parents; husband, Jan; and great granddaughter, Rose Greenwell.

She is survived and will be deeply missed by her children, Paul (Laurie) Hevier, Patrick (Cindy) Hevier and Christine (Dean) Krebs; grandchildren, Jorga (Timothy) Greenwell, Casandra Hevier, Alexis Hevier, Bennie Hevier, and Brent Hevier; great grandchildren Elijah and Lucas Greenwell; and last, but certainly not least, her dear friend, Sandy Miller.

A celebration of life will be held for Pat on Friday, July 6 at Kelley Funeral Home in Apalachicola. Friends and family can gather starting at 4 p.m. A service will be held at 5 p.m. and food will be served around 5:30 p.m.
