Patricia Marie (Zellerhoff) Grimm, 90, of Lewiston, passed away Thursday, April 8, 2021, at Life Care Center of Lewiston.
She was born Aug. 9, 1930, in Colton to Agnes and Henry Zellerhoff.
She attended Guardian Angel Grade School, graduated from Colton High School in 1948 and attended Sacred Heart School of Nursing in Spokane, where she earned a registered nursing degree in 1953.
Patricia married Dale L. Grimm on June 13, 1953, at St. Gall Catholic Church in Colton. The two of them traveled to Bridgeport, Conn., where she worked as a nurse, and she would always mention “working back East.”
She then spent 30 years working as a registered nurse in the orthopedic ward at St. Joseph Regional Medical Center in Lewiston from 1965 until retirement in 1996. Over her career, she received many awards and had several co-workers, patients and their families that she cherished. Pat was an active member of All Saints Catholic Church in Lewiston.
