Patricia Wiegel, 88, passed peacefully at home in Mesa, Arizona on February 26, 2024, with family at her side.  She was surrounded by family the last few days as she laughed and shared memories of days gone by.  Pat lived a beautiful life filled with love from family, friends and devotion to her church.

Pat was born December 22nd, 1935 in Salt Lake City, Utah, the daughter of Hilma and Andrew Glad.  She is survived by her children Michelle (Dennis) Miller, Kevin (Mindy) Wiegel and Melanie (Keith) Perkins, her brothers Andrew Glad, Warren Glad and sister Vickie Conrad.

She was a loving grandmother to 15 grandchildren, 32 great grand children and 1 great great granddaughter.  Pat was preceded in death by her parents, her husband John, her son Blaine Wiegel and her sisters Deanne Darger and Kathy Glad.

Pat married the love of her life John Wiegel in 1955 in the Salt Lake LDS Temple.  The wife of a career service member in the US Army, Pat created a loving home for her husband and 4 wonderful children as they navigated the adventures and challenges of living all over the USA and the world, including stays in Thailand, Taiwan and Ethiopia.  Following those many adventures, the family retired in 1977 to Mesa, AZ., where they bought a house and made it the family home for the next 50 years.  That home became an extension of the family and the place in which so many happy memories were made.

After John retired, together they embarked on a wide and dynamic series of travels that took them all across the world.  They loved traveling with family members, going on cruises and enjoying the many wonders of the Lord’s creations.

Pat was a lifelong member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and loved serving the Lord, sharing testimony in her Young Women, Primary and Relief Society service.  Following John’s passing, Pat was called to serve on a mission at the LDS Family History Library in Salt Lake City where she served with great joy and a big smile.

Upon returning from her mission Pat continued to live a busy and full life.  She spent many summers with her friends relaxing on the sandy beach in North Carolina, traveling to visit family and remained active in the church.  The last few years, Pat was an eager ranch hand collecting the eggs from the chickens and feeding the horses on Melanie & Keith’s ranch by ShowLow.

Patricia will be missed by many tender hearts however we know she was ready to make the journey home and rejoin her beloved John and family.   We will work to carry on her legacy of love and service as we cherish all she shared with us.
