Pat was born on March 12, 1959, in Muscatine, Iowa, to Carleton and RoseAnn (Wetzel) Beckman. On March 12, 1983, Pat and Mike Steger got hitched and blended into their version of the Brady Bunch. Pat was a full-time comedian; however, for the last 15 years she earned a living by doing what she loved, working as a paraprofessional in the special education department at Rock Island High School. Pat never met a stranger, especially no one stranger than her. She was a known jokester, and if you ever had a conversation with her, then you definitely laughed with Pat. Pat loved to cook, and fortunately, her family loved to eat. Most of all, Pat loved. She loved her family, friends and the students she worked with.

Survivors include husband, Michael; children, Christy Steger, Christopher (Hope) Steger, Heidi Steger (Meghan), Holli (Kodjovi) Ebizo; 10 grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; and siblings, Steven (Mary) Beckman and Carleton (Kim) Beckman. She was an honorary Grandma to many.

She was preceded in death by her infant daughter Angel, parents, and two infant sisters.
