DOROTHY MAE PATRICK

Dorothy Mae Patrick” Hertsgaard

DOROTHY MAE PATRICK
Born: May 26, 1936
Died: April 26, 2017
Visitation: Sunday, April 30, 2017
2:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Michaels Funeral Home, 800 S. Roselle Road, Schaumburg
Funeral Service: Monday, May 1, 2017
10:00 am at Michaels
Interment: Mt. Hope Cemetery, Elgin, IL



Dorothy Mae arrived in the world on May 26th, 1936. She arrived earlier than expected, which today has it challenges, however, not like when Dorothy entered the world. She was one of the first incubator babies (she was called ‘inky’ by the doctors and nurses). She had a small hole in her stomach and they needed to get it closed. She couldn’t tell you how the doctors came up with the idea of giving her brandy and bananas via eye dropper; however, the hole in the stomach did close.

Dorothy was a story teller with a memory to rival few. She could remember dates, names, and facts unlike anyone, especially her own family’s history. You were taking your chances if you were against her in a trivia game, you had best brought your A game!

She grew up in the Northwest side of Chicago with her loving parents, Stanley and Harriett. Her younger brother, Leonard was an early companion. He could tell you some stories! Her youngest brother Terry came along several years later. Dorothy was like a mother to Terry. She loved and cared for him like her own. She loved to share her love of movies with him so they would take a bus ride to the movie theatre to enjoy several double features. Dorothy loved to revisit stories about Hoyne Avenue; many memories filled with so much love and laughter.

Perhaps her favorite story starts with a blind date set up by her friends Emily and Lee. They wanted her to meet Lee’s friend, Richard. She looked out the window and saw this young man walking up the stairs to the front door of her home in St. Louis, and she says she knew this was the man she would marry. The two couples dined at White Castle of all places! Dorothy and Richard had not been there before and could not figure out why Lee and Emily ordered several burgers. They were engaged within two months and married less than a year after.

The Patrick family grew soon after the wedding bells. David was born and Kathie soon after. These are the stories of Berteau. No one had to worry about locking doors in this building. Doors were left open, so kids could run down the halls. Family members moved in and out of different apartments as their lives changed. The stories are many and beloved by all who share them.

Dorothy and Richard moved to Streamwood in 1972. It turns out their family was not complete; Shannon came along to the family. Dorothy stayed at home to care for the kids and enjoyed taking care of her family. Unfortunately, sadness came into their lives when they lost Richard in 1981. Dorothy was the rock that held the family together and would tell her kids, ‘take care of each other, we have each other to look out for’.

They did look out for each other and the family grew. Kathie met Dan; Dorothy welcomed him into the family and he was another son. All the grandkids; Kyle, Kelsey, Kristie, Kara and David’s Deanna have been the best stories of Dorothy’s life. She loved sharing her stories about growing up, along with embarrassing stories about their parents. Her favorite hours were recounting past stories along with making new memories with them. She had recently said; ‘the best days are those spent with family’.

The last several years Dorothy added to her family; the staff and residents of Lexington Healthcare. Dorothy and her family knew they needed some help to take care of her and they found it at Lexington. She would share her life stories with nurses, CNAs and her friends. She also loved to hear theirs as well. Dorothy was extremely proud to be president of the Resident’s Council; so that she could be a voice for her fellow residents.

Dorothy left the world as she entered it, too soon. She left us on April 26th, 2017. Her hearty laugh, beautiful smile, warm heart, exceptional mind, and sometimes wicked sense of humor will surely be missed by all those who knew and loved her. With heavy hearts her family will carry on her stories the best they can; wishing they had her extraordinary sense of detail. She would be extremely happy to know that she will be remembered as a fun, vibrant, wonderful woman, with a beautiful heart that is part of their story.
