Patricia Agnes "Pat" (Majerus) Mann


Patricia Agnes "Pat" (Majerus) Mann passed away at her home at Benedictine Care Center in Red Wing on Thursday morning, March 14, 2024 at the age of 92.

Patricia Agnes was born at home in Bellechester, MN on July 19, 1931 to John C. and Gertrude (Mahoney) Majerus. She was baptized and confirmed at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Bellechester and had attended grade school at St. Mary's. She graduated from Goodhue High School in 1949.

She married Ralph T. Mann on September 13, 1950 at St Mary's Catholic Church, and they raised six children together. She was a lifelong, active member of St Mary's. Once their children were in school, Pat started working at Jostens, Riviera Kitchens, and the Farmer's Store, all in Red Wing. She later owned her business, Pat's Painting and Papering, and was known to have wallpapered some rooms at the St. James Hotel and many, many homes in and around the Red Wing area.

Pat was very outgoing and loved shopping for antiques and anything blue. She enjoyed flowers, dancing, painting, decorating (especially for Christmas), and listening to music. Anyone who helped clean her house knew dusting was a big job. She and Ralph loved traveling and did quite a bit during their marriage.

She is survived by her children, Teresa (Alan) Breuer, Kathy (Henry) Thomforde, Mike (Mary Rose) Mann, Mary Beth Mann (Dave Carlson), Joe (Mary) Mann and Steve Mann; 23 grandchildren; 50 great grandchildren; 5 great-great grandchildren; sisters, Jackie Kane, Audrey Baker, Janet Majerus, Judy (Gary) Lodermeier and Corrine (Neil) Stehr; brother, Greg (Mary) Majerus; and many nieces and nephews.

Pat was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Ralph; brother, John (Phyllis) Majerus; sister-in-law, Ellen Scharpen; one son-in-law; and three brothers-in-law.

A memorial Mass was held on Tuesday, March 19 at 11:00 am, with visitation from 9-11 am, at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Bellechester. Interment was in the church cemetery. A luncheon followed at the Bellechester Community Hall.
