Patricia Keslar Hosfelt, 92, of Wheeling, passed away peacefully, surrounded by her loving family on January 11, 2020.

Born in Connellsville, PA, on November 5, 1927, the daughter of Edwin Forest and Mary Dowling Keslar.

In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by brothers Edwin, Leroy and Peter Keslar.

Patricia is survived by her husband of 70 years, William J. Hosfelt, their three children: Kirk Hosfelt, Megan Hickman, and Kerry Mertins; seven grandchildren: Allison Bieniek; Ryan, Emily and Bailey Hosfelt; and Luke, Peter and Jacob Mertins.

Patricia was a dedicated daughter, wife, mother and grandmother. She loved her family fiercely and led by example. Her counsel was not constant, but when delivered in times of need — quite wise. Patricia Nell had a sly, subtle sense of humor which could be most hilarious.

Strong of faith; her love was intense, and she will be greatly missed. We were lucky to have her as part of our lives.

A celebration of Patricia’s life will be held at a later date. Memorial contributions may be made to Liza’s Place, Wheeling.
