Patricia Ann Muyres

Patricia Muyres left this world on January 28, 2022, 86 years of age, the way she lived—leaning in for the next adventure. As an educator, advocate, and artist, Pat celebrated the endless small miracles of life.

Born the eldest of six children and beloved by a large extended family, Pat was always up for a party. But she was also a wonderful listener and confidant to many. When not tending the bright tomatoes and peonies of her garden or walking around the lakes near her home in St. Louis Park, MN, she was probably up north, plunging into cool water, enjoying a sauna, and doing tai chi among the pines.

In her younger years as a Sister of Saint Francis of Assisi, Rochester, MN and at Saint Stephen’s Parish, Pat was a teacher, community organizer, and a great force for social justice—experiences that informed her later work as a financial planner. As a member of the Capricorn Canoe Ladies, she rarely turned down an opportunity to revel in nature with lifelong friends. And in the nearly five decades she shared with her husband Jack, Pat trekked from ocean depths to the top of the Rockies.

Intuitive and practical, Pat also had a wild elegance and always a perfectly chosen hat for the occasion. Storyteller. Avid reader. A sense for spice—dinner with Pat was itself an adventure for those lucky enough to be at her table. Bon voyage dear Patricia.

Pat is survived by husband Jack (John) Barnes, siblings Jean Bungarden, Tom Muyres, Judy Muyres, Mike Muyres (Sandy), Mary Lou Muyres-Norbie (Bob), and her children in life Kathy Brummond (Pat), Ginger Winslow (Bob), Andy Barnes (Janette), Steve Barnes (Julie), and Jim Barnes (Jennifer), along with many other loving family. Patricia was preceded in death by her parents Marcella and August Muyres.
