Obituary for Patti "Pat" Ditmar

September 13, 1954 - August 6, 2019
Holland, Michigan | Age 64


On Tuesday, August 6, 2019, heaven gained a beautiful angel. Patti "Pat" Barrett Ditmar, age 64 of Holland was victorious over her fight with cancer. Surrounded by the love of her family, she was healed and freed from her earthly body. Her family will miss the beautiful light she brought to their life every day. Being an avid gardener, Pat understood that light is essential for growth. Through her light, a marriage of 47 years blossomed, and led to a garden of two children, four grandchildren, and a bouquet of wonderful friends. Like a rose that leaves for the winter but returns in the spring, her family finds comfort in the fact that she will bloom again in the arms of God. Her family and friends will always think of her when they see Disney's "Lion King," enjoy Corona (no lime!), "ooh and ahh" at the fireworks, and each time they receive a visit from a hummingbird.

Pat is survived by her husband, Jon Ditmar; children: Brian and Katie Ditmar of Oswego, NY, Alison Terpsma of Holland; grandchildren: Robbie Ditmar, Henry Ditmar, Jacob Terpsma, Sidney Terpsma; parents, Ray and Mary Barrett of Vero Beach, FL; siblings: Linda and Michael Huizenga of Holland, Jack and Rhonda Barrett of Muskegon; brother-in-law: Jack Gebben of Holland; as well as many nieces, nephews, and friends, all of whom will miss her deeply.
Pat was preceded in death by her brother, Michael Barrett, and her sister Kathy Gebben.

Funeral services will be held at 6:30pm, Monday, August 19, 2019, at Ridge Point Community Church, 340 104th Ave., Holland MI 49423. Memorials contributions may be given to Spectrum Health Hospice or to Van Andel Institute with a designation to Pancreatic Cancer Research.
