December 2, 1934 - November 8, 2020
Patsy McCarthy Eckstorm, 85, of Thomas Twp., our loving, sociable, and most kind mother and grandma went Home to be with the Lord on the afternoon of Sunday, November 8, 2020, under the loving care of her daughter. Pat was born in Saginaw on December 2, 1934, the daughter of the late Elmer and Bertha (Pretzer) Halm. Growing up, Patsy was blessed with loving parents and grandparents, growing up on the family farm in Thomas Twp., enjoying the company of her cousins, Jim, Jerry, and Dale Halm, who lived next door. She attended Dice Grade School and was a 1953 graduate of Arthur Hill High School. On November 26, 1955, Pat was united in marriage to Gerald McCarthy, who preceded her in death on December 6, 1984 after 29 years of marriage. She later married Eugene Eckstorm on March 8, 1995, and he preceded her on July 29, 2004 after nine years of marriage. Pat was also preceded in death by her dear friend and companion, George Moulton, on October 13, 2018. A wonderful servant of the Lord, Pat was a member of St. Peter Lutheran Church in Hemlock. She enjoyed golfing, reading, the gym, and tending to house and yardwork. A true “social butterfly,” Pat enjoyed her memberships with the Eagles, Moose Lodge, American Legion Post 439, the V.F.W., and T.O.P.S. 1274. Her kind-hearted, loving, and generous ways will live on for years to come. Pat leaves to carry on her legacy, her daughter, Shannon and husband, Aaron Anderson; grandchildren, Ian Anderson, age 12 and Elliott Anderson, age 10; step-children, Jodi and husband, Buzz Leach, Jamie Eckstorm LaCross, Steve Eckstorm, and their families; Geroge’s children, Terry, Craig, and Steve Moulton, and their families; wonderful and faithful friends, Ron and Lois Miller and Carol Eimers, along with countless friends, neighbors, and extended family members. In addition to her parents and her husbands, Pat was welcomed home to heaven by her daughter, Shelley McCarthy in 1980. Pat’s family will be present to receive visitors on Wednesday, November 11, 2020 from 3:00 PM until 8:00 PM at Skorupski Family Funeral Home & Cremation Services (formerly Reitz-Herzberg), 1550 Midland Rd., between State & Gratiot.
