Patricia Gaye Simmons, 61, Elcho, died Saturday, August 22, 2020 at Aspirus Wausau Hospital. 

Patricia was born Jan. 15, 1959 to Jack and Bonnie (Holz) Spencer.  She was blessed with one son, Jeff.  Patricia worked as a Registered Nurse in the North Woods for nearly 20 years. 

Patricia was a very good mother and grandmother who valued her strong family bonds.  She was an extremely caring, generous and compassionate person who sought to care for others and help those in need when ever she could. 

For more then 20 years, Patricia lived on Post Lake where she enjoyed boating, going 4-wheeling with her son and the peacefulness of lake life.  She liked to travel, especially to Puerta Vallarta during the cold Wisconsin winters, and old country music but her favorite pastime was shopping where she became known as a stealth shopper by her family. 

Patricia is survived by her son, Jeff Wunrow; grandson, Brandon Wunrow; mother, Bonnie Spencer, brothers, Jack (Lori) Spencer Jr., Bruce (Cheryl Geiger) Spencer and Scott (Lisa) Spencer; nephew, Jack Spencer III and her beloved fur-baby, Molly.  She is preceded in death by her father, Jack Spencer Sr. 

There will be a private family gathering to celebrate Patricia’s life at a later date.  Brainard Funeral Home is assisting the family with the arrangements; you may sign our family guestbook at brainardfuneral.com.
