Patricia was born on April 21, 1949 in Rockford, IL, the daughter of Ernfred and Iva Mae (Kniskern) Olson. She earned her associate’s degree in business from Rockford business college. She married Ricky D. Cutright on June 22, 1985, at Salem Lutheran Church. Patricia worked in billing and accounts payable for 20 years with Rockford Memorial Hospital. She attended Salem Lutheran Church and was a proud member of the Alano Club for 42 years where she was very involved with setting up for meetings, dinners, and various events. Patricia enjoyed fishing, camping and traveling and had an immense love of frogs, including frog decorations and just about anything to do with frogs. Many fond memories include dinners on the Mississippi river boat and hosting family cookouts, fish fries, and bonfires. Patricia’s most recent trips were to the Grand Canyon and Seattle, Washington to visit family. Above all else, she cherished her time spent with family and loved ones. Patricia will be dearly missed.
