Patricia Ann Aitken, 87, and a longtime resident of Warsaw, passed away on Sunday, July 19, 2020, at Mason Health and Rehabilitation Center.
She was born on Aug. 17, 1932, in Wabash, and was the daughter of the late Pierre Marvin and Hazel Bush Marvin. Pat, as most knew her, was a 1950 graduate of North Manchester High School. Professionally, she worked for several years with NIPSCO in customer service and for Controls in North Manchester. She retired from Controls in 1997 with more than 25 years on their timer production line.
On April 13, 1973, Pat was united in marriage to William “Bill” Aitken. Together, the pair shared 47 years, though their families had been friends for many years prior.
Pat was an exceptional housekeeper and their home was always spotless, even when she was cooking and baking – which she loved to do. Visitors rarely went hungry thanks to her casseroles and made-from-scratch cakes. She and Bill loved to travel and spent several years wintering in Tucson. She is remembered for her kind, caring and compassionate nature.
Those who survive include her husband, Bill Aitken, of Warsaw; daughters: Ann (Dennis) Bollenbacher, of Rockford, Ohio; and Julie Rhodes, of North Manchester; and stepson, Jim (Lucy) Aitken, of Warsaw. Also surviving are her grandchildren: Aaron Rhodes, Darcie Warren, Michael Aitken, Christina Johnson and their families, including several great-grandchildren.
She was preceded in passing by her parents; a sister, Mary Jane Fisher; stepdaughter, Connie Allen; and granddaughter, Mindy Allen.
A Life Celebration® visitation will be held at Titus Funeral Home on Wednesday, July 22 beginning at 11 a.m. At noon, those in attendance will proceed to Oakwood Cemetery for a graveside service, officiated by Titus Funeral Home’s funeral celebrant, Sharon Brockhaus.
