CAMINO, Calif. — Patricia “Panzy” Ann Stiles died peacefully at her home surrounded by family, in Camino, Calif., Wednesday June 19, 2019.
Born in 1933, in Fort Atkinson, Wis., Panzy received a bachelor of arts degree in music and piano from Appleton College in 1955. She also received her masters of arts degree in psychology while living in Germany with her family in 1975.
Panzy was married to her loving husband, Roger Ellsworth Stiles, in 1956. Panzy traveled the world with her beloved husband, Roger, and family during his Air force career, until their retirement to Wilton, Calif., in 1982. They built their retirement home in Wilton. When the river property of a lifetime surfaced, they decided to move back to Jim Falls, in 1989. They lived a very social life with their life-long friends in Chippewa. Panzy moved to Camino, to live with her family after Roger’s passing in 2016.
Panzy loved being part of the First Presbyterian Church, fishing, gardening, feeding the birds, talking walks, good food and an occasional Leinenkugel’s Grapefruit Shandy. She enjoyed spending time with her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Panzy had a wonderful smile that could light up a room. She was a very kind and caring person. She and Roger had many lifelong friends worldwide and loved spending time with them.
She is survived by her four children, Cindy and Jerry Sebastien (Stiles), Randy and Tina Stiles, Becky and Tom (Straling) Stiles and Peter Stiles; 11 grandchildren, Jeremy Sebastien, Ben Sebastien, Nick Sebastien, Ryan Stiles, Austin Stiles, Scott Stiles, Conner Stiles, Zachary Marchant, Jessica Morine, Breanna Lyman, and Braden Stiles; and four great-grandchildren, Ainslee Marchant (Zach and Jamie Marchant), Jasmine Sebastien (Ben and Erika Sebastien), Riley Lyman (Samuel and Brianna Lyman) and Sahara Stiles (Braden and Shaun Stiles).
