LaNora Mae Patch, 75, of Poynette, passed away on April 2, 2018. She lived a life full of taking care
of others. She had a love for music, painting, drawing, writing stories and poems. Most of importance
to LaNora was her relationship with her God Jehovah. She was baptized as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses
in September of 1963. She served faithfully for 54 years. The highlight of her final days were preparing
to attend the Memorial of Christ death, which she attended on March 31st. The faith she had in Rev 21:3
& 4 brought her much comfort.
