Patricia "Patty" E. Wahl, 87, of Neillsville, and originally from Houston, MN died on Tuesday, February 26, 2019, at her current residence in West Salem.
Patricia Eileen Wahl was born in Mountain Lake, MN to Edwin H. and Georgia Alvena (Johnson) Wilcox on January 14, 1932. She moved with her family to Sleepy Eye, MN and later to Houston, MN during her childhood. Her mother died while Patty was a child. After her Mother's death, Patty was raised by her grandparents and siblings in the Houston area. She was a 1950 graduate of Houston High School. She was united in marriage with Roger A. Wahl on September 5, 1953, in Houston. Patty graduated from nursing school at Minneapolis General Hospital. Roger and Patty's three children were all born in Minneapolis. The family moved to Neillsville, in the mid-1960s, where they owned and operated the Wahl Rexall Drug Store. Roger died in 1969. Patty raised her family in Neillsville. After selling the drug store in 1973 she returned to nursing and retired in 1995 from Neillsville Memorial Nursing Home. In 2015 she moved to the La Crosse, area to be closer to her family. Patty enjoyed collecting antiques, was a cat lover, and enjoyed celebrating Houston Hoedown with her family.
