Patricia A. (Highhouse) Hendrickson

Patricia A (Highhouse) Hendrickson, 77, of Pitts-field, passed away Wednes-day Jan. 13, 2021 at UPMC Hamot in Erie, after a long brave illness.

She was born Oct. 11, 1943 in Warren to the late Louis and Lois Snavley Highhouse, who preceded her in death in 2005 and 2008. She was also pre-ceded in death by her broth-er Bruce Highhouse in 2006. She worked at Rex-nord for 6 years until her son was born and became a full time mother and house-hold manager.

She started a hobby of woodcraft’s, which turned into her enjoyable business for more than 30 years. She tried to never miss her grandchildren’s sports, and band recitals. Her and Bill traveled to the West Coast, Mexico, Florida and Cana-da. Pat enjoyed going auto racing with her son and his buddies for many years. Bill and her went to Florida during the winter to visit friends and attend dirt track racing events. She enjoyed gardening and mowing the lawn. Pat decorated her house as a craft shop and collected many unique items from fellow crafters. She was always up for trips to a casino and restaurants. We will miss her dearly as a wife, mother, grand-mother and friend.

Pat is survived by her husband of 56 years Bill Hendrickson, a son Michael and his wife Linda Hen-drickson of Pittsfield, a daughter Krista and her husband Gary Tuttle of Youngsville, and 2 grandchildren who were the pride of her life, Taylor and Conner Tuttle.

A private graveside ser-vice will be held at the con-venience of the family in Youngsville Cemetery. A memorial service will be held at a later date at the St. John’s Lutheran Church in Warren and will be an-nounced.

The family suggests memorial donations may be made to the St. John’s Lutheran Church 200 Pleasant Dr. or to Paws Along the River, 212 Elm St. both of Warren, P.A. 16365. The Nelson Funeral Home & Cremation Ser-vices in Youngsville have been entrusted with all ar-rangements. Condolences to the family may be made at www.nelsonfuneralhome.
