Patricia Ann Bertossi, age 83, passed away on Monday, February 21, 2022 at The Brook in West Branch. She was born on June 17, 1938 in New Haven, MI to LeRoy and Irma (Kaatz) Liebzeit.

Pat and her husband Joe, moved to West Branch in 1970 and opened J & P Sporting Goods in 1982. They owned and operated the family business until 1993 when they sold to their children.

They eventually fell in love with Casa Grande, AZ and the residents, making that their winter destination.

During the summer months, Pat worked at both the Dream and Nightmare golf courses. She took great pleasure in working with the Courtemanche family and the patrons of the courses.

In her free time, Pat enjoyed watching the grandkids play ball, attending to her flower garden and admiring the hummingbirds. She was a kind, spirited woman with a heart of gold. She will be missed by all.
