Patricia M. Blue, 93, of Motley died February 28, 2021, in Carver.

Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. on Sat., March 13 at Motley United Methodist Church in Motley. Visitation will be one hour prior to services at the church on Saturday.

Patricia will be laid to rest in the Minnesota State Veterans Cemetery near Little Falls. 

Patricia was born January 13, 1928 in Moorhead to James and Clara (Wohlert) Fitch. She grew up in the Fargo/Moorhead area.  While in high school her family moved to Cleveland, OH. Patricia met her husband, Glen Blue, following his honorable discharge from the U.S. Navy. The couple was united in marriage on September 14, 1946 in Moorhead. Patricia and Glen often enjoyed swing dancing at the Medina Ballroom.  

Patricia walked strongly in her faith, because her faith carried her through some very tough times. She was a member of the Motley United Methodist Church where she was active in the church choir, allowing her to express her spirituality through song. She was  active in her community baking cookies for the Lions Club, delivering for Meals on Wheels, singing and performing with the Sweet Adeline’s and supporting the Motley Historical Society.  She taught her children self-reliance, how to find adventures in life, have fun and that life is just a little bit better with pink lipstick. Patricia appreciated a child’s smile and was always full of love; she loved her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren beyond words. She will be dearly missed by all who knew her.

Patricia is survived by two daughters, Sandra (Richard) Tracy of Hutchinson and Bonnie (Jim) Bellmer of Hayesville, OH; five sons, Robert (Mary) of Excelsior, Douglas of Minneapolis, Daniel of St. Louis Park, Richard (Becky) of Carver and David of Motley; one brother, Donald (Ginny) Fitch of Little Falls; brother-in-law, Terry (Char) Blue of Texas; 11 grandchildren  and many great grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Glen; step-father, Erwin Eckheart and one grandson, Dustin Blue.

Arrangements have been entrusted to Brenny Family Funeral Chapel, Staples.
