Patricia I. “Pat” Pfeufer, 77, of 106 Capri Road, St. Marys, PA passed away Saturday, March 11, 2023 surrounded by her family at Good Samaritan Hospice in Wexford, PA.
She was born March 11, 1946 in St. Marys, daughter of the late Joseph and Margaret “Peg” Cooney Krellner. She was a lifelong resident of the area and a graduate of Elk County Christian High School, Class of 1964. Following high school, Pat pursued a degree in education, attending Villa Maria for her bachelor’s degree and Clarion State College for her master’s degree.
On August 17, 1968, at Queen of the World Church, she married Carl Pfeufer, who survives. Together they shared over 54 years of marriage. In 1993, they started their small tool and die business, Phaztech, Inc. They grew the business, which they viewed as an extension of their family, for more than 25 years.
Along with her caring husband, Pat is survived by three daughters: Sally Lion and her husband Andy, of Gibsonia, PA, Julie Sober and her husband Troy, of Stoneham, MA, and Christie Tenorio and her husband Ricardo, of Pittsburgh, PA; two sons: Gregg Pfeufer and his wife Ann, of Pittsburgh, PA, and Benji Pfeufer and his wife Tara, of DuBois, PA; ten grandchildren: Ava Lion, Reese Lion, Drew Lion, Olivia Sober, Lillian Sober, Thiago Tenorio, Bastian Tenorio, Maddie Pfeufer, Allie Pfeufer, and Alexas Pfeufer; four sisters: Sandy Metzler, Evelyn Krug and her husband Bud, Susanne Astley and her husband Bill, and Paula Micale and her husband Dan; one brother, Justin Krellner and his wife Becky; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
In addition to her parents, Pat was preceded in death by one sister, Kathy Wilson, survived by her husband Wally Wilson; and by two brothers, Teddy Krellner, survived by his wife Annice, and Brian Krellner, survived by his wife Chris.
Pat loved and accepted everyone. She called herself a ‘people collector’ because she loved to make connections with those around her and was always willing to lend a hand. She wanted nothing more than to make those around her happy. She lived a life of unwavering service to others and to God. She was a member of the Queen of the World Church where she was a Eucharistic Minister. As a hospice volunteer for the Community Nurses, she practiced Reiki. She also volunteered for Meals on Wheels and helped countless others along the way. Since her first cancer diagnosis in 1998, she organized annual fundraising for Relay for Life.
Family and friends are invited to attend a Mass of Christian Burial on Saturday, March 18, 2023 at 10:00 AM at Queen of the World Church with the Rev. Jeffery Noble, Pastor, celebrating.
