KARSEMEYER, Patricia Ann Born Sept. 10, 1937, in Seward, Oklahoma. Passed away March 17, 2010, in Lancaster, Calif. A resident of Lancaster, 72 year old Patty Karsemeyer was nominated for her 38 years of caring for others as a licensed vocational nurse working at hospitals, retirement homes, medical offices and in home health care. She was just an incredible woman who put others needs ahead of her own. For 38 years, nursing has been her dedication. You probably saw her around, shes was a cute little thing driving a big Cadillac. The trunk held little baskets of supplies needed to treat her patients. Her back seat was sometimes filled with cookies, brittle, fudge and cakes for her patients who had no one, or for the family who just needed a little touch of love. She retired to enjoy cooking, gardening, yard sales and maintaining her house, caring for her husband and dogs. Regrettably, she was enduring pain in her shoulder. On March 16, 2010, she went to have the shoulder replaced, but later after stabilizing her heart stopped while talking to the nurse. They could not restart this tired heart, at 4 a.m., on March 17, 2010. Survived by her husband David Karsemeyer, her 3 daughters, 5 grandchildren, 12 great-grandchildren, 3 step-children and 7 step- grandchildren. Preceded in death by her first husband Jess Culp and son Mike Culp. Funeral will be held at 2 p.m., Wednesday, March 24, 2010, at Joshua Memorial Park & Mortuary, Lancaster. Her remains will be brought home to the house she kept up so well for 30+ years. A gathering will be held at her daughters house after the services. Hebrews 11....
