Special Notes

Patricia 'Pat' Helen Greven was born in St. Cloud, Minnesota on July 15, 1915. She graduated from high school in St. Cloud in June 1932. She attended St. Cloud Teacher's College and graduated with a degree in elementary education. In 1942, she married Byron Anderson, who served in the army during World War II. Following his discharge, they moved to Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin, where Bryon was the Executive Vice President of First National Bank. He passed away in 1990, at the age of 77. They celebrated 48 years of marriage.

Pat was an elementary teacher for 28 years, teaching second grade at Chestnut school in Chippewa Falls until her retirement in 1980. Upon retirement, she was presented a 'Distinguished Service Award' from the Governor and the state of Wisconsin. She loved her P.E.O. Chapter. One of the main purposes of P.E.O. is to enable women to become better educated with any financial help that P.E.O. can offer. Before she died, she wanted to set up some type of scholarship fund which would further help women who might otherwise be unable to complete their degrees. Patricia lived in Eau Claire at the time of her death on September 8, 2011 at age 86.

Thank You Letters of appreciation should be addressed to the PEO Sisterhood Chapter AP of Eau Claire and sent to the UW-Eau Claire Foundation.
