Theresa Patricia "Pat" Symborski, 94, of Hampton Twp., our cherished and loving mother and grandmother was born into eternal life on the afternoon of Monday, January 27, 2014 at Bay Medical Care Facility. Pat was born in Bay City on September 29, 1919, the daughter of the late Kazmer and Mary (Owczarzak) Zielinski. She worked as a farmer and enjoyed flowers and gardening, bowling, traveling and spending time in Tawas. Pat was a member of St. John the Evangelist Church, its Altar Society and League of Catholic Women. Pat was a caring and compassionate lady who will be greatly missed. Left to cherish her memory are her three children, Toni and husband, Richard Dereszynski, Sally and husband, Jerry VanTol and Ken and wife, Barb Symborski, all of the Essexville area. Pat was the loving grandma of eleven grandchildren, nineteen great-grandchildren and two great-great grandchildren. In addition to her parents, Pat was welcomed home to heaven by her husband, Stanley, four sisters and four brothers. The entire family would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to the staff of Heartland Hospice and Bay Medical Care Facility for their compassionate care and support.
