Patricia Ann Bremer was born on Monday, May 3, 1971, in Elkhorn, WI a daughter of Edwin Richard and Winifred “Winnie” (Foot) Bremer. Patty as she was known by to her family and friends, lived with her parents and older sister, Jackie in Elkhorn until she was three. The Bremer family then moved to Baker, MT, where Patty grew up and attended Baker Schools, graduating from Baker High School in 1989. In 1987, while on vacation with her mother to Minnesota, Patty became the victim of a freak accident in which a tire came off of another vehicle and came through the windshield of the car she was driving. From that day on Patty’s life as she knew it would forever be changed, as the tragic situation left her a quadriplegic. Prior to her accident, Patty played basketball, volleyball and was a member of the Spartanettes and school band. She went from being an active teenager to being in a wheel chair.
Following her graduation, Patty attended MSU in Bozeman, MT for two years before transferring to the University of Texas in Arlington, TX where she was pursuing a degree in Business Marketing. Patty made her home in Texas until 2007, when she moved to Miles City, MT where she has made her home.
While living in Miles City, Patty volunteered her time working in the Saint Vincent and DePaul Thrift Store. Patty enjoyed singing karaoke, painting and loved to shoot pool. Her greatest love in life was for her family and two faithful canine companions, Jasmine and Chanty. Patty was never handicapped; she just had to make a few adjustments for every day life.
