Pat passed away peacefully on March 7th in the loving presence of her family at Teton Medical Center in Choteau, MT.  Celebration of Life services will be held at 11:00am on Wednesday, July 15 at the Choteau Baptist Church. Cremation has taken place under the direction of Gorder Jensen Funeral Home.

Patricia was born in Great Falls, MT to Arvid and Margaret Woodahl.  She graduated from Great Falls High School in 1947 and went on to a career in the US Air Force and Central Intelligence Agency.  During this time she traveled extensively to the Middle East, South and Central America, and Europe.  Her favorite locations that she resided during this time were Damascus and Guatemala.

In 1970 she returned to Great Falls, Montana to work for her brother, James Woodahl up until 1985.  After that she moved to Choteau, MT, to be the legal secretary for her other brother, Robert Woodahl, until she retired in 2000.  When she retired she returned to Great Falls.  She faithfully served on the board of Baron Arms condominiums and enjoyed a great game of bridge with her Great Falls friends.  In 2011 she returned to Choteau, moving to the Skyline Lodge, where she enjoyed talking with her many friends and a great game of Bingo!

She is preceded in death by her parents Arvid and Margaret, and her brothers James and Robert Woodahl.    She is survived by her sister and brother in law MarSue and Bob Jensen, her sister-in-law Arlene Woodahl, her Goddaughter and niece Susan Murphy, nieces Kristina Brown and Kirsten Taniguchi, and nephews, Brian, Scott, and Eric Woodahl, and Todd Jensen, and her son and daughter in law, Leif and Tami Woodahl, and her grandchildren Connor and Ciara Woodahl of Poway, California.

The family is asking that in lieu of flowers that donations be made in her name to the Teton Medical Center Foundation to help support the institution that cared for her so lovingly at the end of her life.  Special thanks to Susan, Phil, and Adrienne Murphy and Bob and MarSue Jensen for the loving care they provided for Pat during her years in Choteau.

May the Lord bless the family of Pat Woodahl. I knew Pat for just a short time, but admired her tenacity. She was not a quitter. I appreciated her friendship and wish the family well being from her passing. May days ahead be filled with fond memories of your Mother, grandmother, and friend. Ira Sumner, friend of Pat at Skyline Lodge.
