Patricia "Pat" was born on February 10, 1950 in Waterloo, Iowa, the daughter of Vail & Lorraine (Taylor) Hess. She grew up in rural Grundy Center on the family farm, where she attended and graduated from Grundy Center High School in the class of 1968. Pat married Jerry Bakker in 1970, which they were later divorced. They welcomed a son into their family in 1975. Pat worked as the office manager for a dentist office for 25 years before retiring in the early 1990's. She also enjoyed volunteering for various civic events/causes in Grundy Center and was especially proud of her work on the Felix Grundy Festival.
Pat enjoyed helping others with their needs, which she always put before her own. She also enjoyed baking and cooking, especially for family and friends. What brought the most joy to Pat was spending time with her family, especially her son and daughter-in-law and her two grandchildren.
Pat is survived by her son Rob (Heather) Bakker of Waukee, IA and granddaughters Katelyn and Hailey Bakker. Also surviving are three siblings, sister Rebecca (Cork) Peterson of Reinbeck, IA, brother Douglas Hess of Pueblo, CO, and sister Judith Hess of Chicago, IL, along with a nephew, numerous cousins and other extended family. She was preceded in death by her parents.
