Patricia K. "Paddy"

Paddy was born May 16, 1932, passed away May 22, 2022, at her home in Plymouth, MN at age 90. Preceded in death by her parents Jeannette and Ben Higgins, husband James, and son Vincent. Survived by her children Tim (Anita Schulz), Terry (Jane), Melanie Kaine Reiner, Daniel (Julie) and Celia (Tom) Threlkeld. Adored by her grandchildren Jennifer (Kevin) Peterson, Brittany Kaine, Ben Kaine, Samantha Kaine, Abbey (Jack) Hamburg, Harrison Kaine; Elizabeth Reiner, Patrick Reiner, Charlette Reiner, Megan (Jeff) Johnson; Christine (Bryan Hawk) Kaine, Angela (Brian Caris) Kaine, Erin Kaine; Leigh (Andrew) Spilseth, Brett (Jacob) Kurth and soon-to-be 10 great-grandchildren.

Paddy graduated from Saint Anthony of Padua in 1950, married her husband Jim (both only children) in 1951. They raised their family of six in Minneapolis. Paddy enjoyed reading, sewing, tennis, and socializing with her friends in her Cimarron Ponds neighborhood. Photography was also a passion, which led to her love of gadgets, and her desire to keep up with changing technology. Those skills helped in her long successful career in real-estate, which she enjoyed until age 80. Paddy was feisty, sharp, and social to the end!

She will be missed.
