Patricia (Pat) Leon

March 15, 1930 — February 4, 2024

Bloomington, Minnesota

Patricia Leon, 93, of Bloomington, Minnesota, died Sunday, February 4, at home. Patricia (Pat) was born on March 15, 1930, to Michael and Esther Nash in New Prague, Minnesota. Pat grew up in the Irish farming community of St. Patrick, Minnesota and graduated from New Prague High School. She attended beauty school in Minneapolis and worked there as a beautician where she met her husband, Francis Leon (Frank), a barber at the shop next door. Pat and Frank were married on February 19, 1955, and had three children. 

When she married, Pat became a homemaker. She was very fond of cooking and tending to her flower gardens, a pastime she handed down to her children. She was a devout Catholic all her life and had a special devotion to the Holy Rosary which she faithfully prayed daily. Her fidelity to prayer and love of the Cross will often be remembered. As Providence would have it, her youngest great-granddaughter, Agnes Marie, was born the day Pat entered eternity. 

Pat was preceded in death by her parents; husband Frank; and brothers Robert, John, and James. 

Pat is survived by her children Jean Leon, Burnsville, MN; Carol Ard (Patrick), St. Mary’s, KS; Steven Leon, Bloomington, MN; two sisters, Lorraine Enger, Richfield, MN, and Mary Timura (John), Necedah, WI; brother, Rollie Nash (Addie), Burnsville, MN; six grandchildren and seventeen great-grandchildren. 

Visitation and Rosary will be held at Kessler & Maguire Funeral Home, 640 W. 7th St., St. Paul, MN on Monday, February 12, from 8:30am - 10am. A Requiem Mass will be offered at Our Lady of the Visitation Catholic Church, 875 Manomin Ave., St. Paul, MN at 10:30am. Burial will follow at Fort Snelling National Cemetery in Minneapolis at 1:30 P.M. Meet at Assembly Area #4.

In lieu of flowers, please have a Mass offered for the repose of Pat’s soul at Our Lady of the Visitation Catholic Church, St. Paul, MN or Immaculate Heart of Mary Church, Oak Grove, MN.
