Age 84 of Coal City, Illinois, died Monday, February 14, 2022 at Morris Hospital.
Born November 2, 1937 in West Frankfort, Illinois, Patricia Ann was the daughter of Raymond and Elizabeth (Argyle) Jones. She was raised and educated in Coal City and graduated from Coal City High School.

She was a talented baker whose shortbread cookies were coveted by her family and friends. Pat was a lover of all animals and enjoyed having her home neatly decorated, especially for the holidays and family gatherings. Family was always Pat’s number one priority, and she cherished the memories made with them, especially her grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Survivors include three children: Vicky (Keith) Roseland, Scott (Cari) Pierard, and Tina (Paul) Jakubowski, all of Coal City; her daughter-in-law, Gigi Pierard of Coal City; six grandchildren: Adam Roseland, Timothy Roseland, Brendan (Marianna) Pierard, Sabrina Pierard (Blake Marketti), Abbey (Harrison) Navickas, and Zachary Pierard, and three great grandchildren: Evelyn, Eleanor, and Beau.
Pat was preceded in death by her parents and husband; one son, Steve Pierard, and her brother, Donald Jones.
