Patricia Katherine Kluge, better known as Patt, age 77, of Villa Park, IL passed away Tuesday, June 1st, 2021. She was preceded just 9 months ago by her loving husband of 57 years, Paul Kluge. They lived in Villa Park for over 50 years where they raised their 6 children: Deidre (Jim) Herriman, Paul (Susan) Kluge, Matthew (Lisa) Kluge, Clayton (Dana) Kluge, Sandy (Keith) Kraynak, and the late Jonathan Kluge. She was also the cherished grandmother of Luke, Todd, Jace, Sydney, Kennedy, Emily, Ashley, Ethan, Elena, Sophia and Gia; great grandmother of Reese, Serenity, Ivy & Graham; aunt and great aunt to many; as well as the much loved sister of Mary Lynn Yarter & Kathy (Steve) Venzon. She was also preceded by her siblings: Gigi Narducci, Carol Lawson and Michael Lundgren.
Patt was a school bus driver in Villa Park for over 34 years as well as an active member of the community. From the PTA to the Citizens’ Police Academy, she cared about her community, but even more the people who were in it. She could not pass someone hurting without first telling them how much they were loved by their Creator and Savior! But also doing all she could to help them in more physical ways. She shared her blessings with strangers and her joy with all who met her. She will be greatly missed by so many!
