Patricia Ann Day, a two-time cancer survivor, lost her battle on Monday, March 21, 2011, at her home in Spencer after a brave and courageous fight against colon, lung and brain cancer. Pat was born on Sept. 26, 1928, in Ottumwa, Ia. to Henry Hoover and Theresa (O'Conner) Hoover. She spent her childhood years in Ottumwa and graduated from Ottumwa High School in 1946. She married the love of her life, Ralph Day on Nov. 23, 1946. They moved to Webster City in 1958. Pat was employed as a production worker for Webster City Products for 27 years until she retired (untired) in 1993. They moved to Kimberling City, Mo. in 1995, and later to Forsyth, Mo. in 1999. They currently reside in Spencer Ia. She was a member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Spencer.

Pat was preceded in death by her parents; two brothers, Thomas and Bill Hoover; and two sisters, Bernadine Powell and Madline Coberg.

Left to cherish her memory are her husband of 64 years, Ralph; daughters: Cheryl (David) Smith and Linda (Dennis) Linn; son Robert (Lori) Day; sisters: Sally Boley, Mary Todd, Donna Henson and Betty Lathrop; grandchildren: Matt (Salma) Smith, Tom (Jennifer) Smith, Kelli (Paul) Bloomquist, Katie (Brian) Balk, Kristi (Ryan) Swedean, Jon Day and Jordan Day; and six great-grandchildren.
