Pat was born on July 14, 1935 in New Orleans, Louisiana, the only child of Armand and Bertha Gaillard. Beloved wife of the late John F. Kornfeld, Jr.

Pat was a southern lady through and through and never lost the hint of her New Orleans accent. She was a Master bridge player, accomplished seamstress, and avid reader. An inaugural volunteer at the Shorewood Senior Resource Center, she organized Monday bridge for almost 20 years. She was also a member of the Lunch Bunch Group, and served on many committees and in many volunteer capacities. She was devoted to her family and friends and will be dearly missed.
Pat was pre-deceased by her husband, John Kornfeld, Jr. and her son, Kurt Von Kornfeldt.
The family wishes to thank the caregivers at the Milwaukee Catholic Home and Stowell Associates for the kind, loving care they provided to Pat throughout the years.
The family will hold private services at a later date.
