Patricia Ann Michell

Our loving mother, grandmother, great grandmother and friend, Patricia Ann Michell, 93, passed away peacefully on Monday, June 22, 2020 at the The Lodge in North Ogden, Utah.
She was born on March 29, 1927 in Reading, Pennsylvania, a daughter of August Henry and Elsie Irene Shaw Schroeder. Born Patricia Ann Schroeder, she lived with her parents in Hackettstown, NJ. Her father received orders to the war in Europe and arrived in Normandy on D-Day +4 (days). When Germany was liberated, Patricia and her mother sailed on an Army troop transport to Germany to join her father, who was then assigned as the director of European ports and inland waterways. Patricia Michell led an exemplary life. Her first residence was in the curator's home of The Museum of Natural History in Frankfurt. Her next home was the Dyckerhoff residence overlooking the Rhine River. The Dykerhoff's company "Portland-Cement-Fabrik Dyckerhoff" provided the cement for the base of the Statue of Liberty on the Hudson River. While living in Germany Patricia attended the University of Frankfurt and enjoyed duck hunting on the Rhine while standing on the back of a PT boat.
Bernard (Ben) Lloyd was the adjutant to her father, the Colonel. Patricia and Ben became friends and soon married in the nearby Kronberg Castle. After her fairytale wedding, they traveled by private train to honeymoon in the South of France. Patricia's years in Germany exposed her to fine art and the wonderful German people and their culture. Ben and Patricia had three children: Adrian Denise, Randall Bernard, and Gregory August.
Patricia remarried in 1968 to Dr. George Michell, also of her hometown of Hackettstown, NJ. They had been classmates in both grammar and high school. George and Patricia resided in Patricia's home in Lake Lenape, in Andover Township, NJ, where she lived until moving to Utah in 2018 to live with her son Randall (Randy). Their home in Lake Lenape was lake front property, so water sports were always popular for George and Patricia and Patricia's children from her marriage with Ben.
Patricia was an excellent cook and baker, hosting formal and informal dinner parties for family and friends. George was an exceptional organist, so George and Patricia hosted dinners with dancing afterwards as George played popular show tunes for their guests. She and George loved to travel, visiting Europe, Canada, the Caribbean, and many US states. After her son Randy enlisted in the US Navy, Patricia went to work at the Sussex County Racquet Center in Sparta NJ. as a receptionist for twenty years. She also played on tennis league teams during that time. In her later years, Patricia enjoyed yard work and reading books on her deck overlooking the lake, and dining in her favorite restaurants with family. Patricia enjoyed riding her racing bike on the Northern New Jersey roads up to her early eighties, often riding 10-20 miles per day.
The family would like to thank Canyon Hospice and the staff of The Lodge at North Ogden for their loving care of our mother.
Surviving are three children, Adrian Denise (Mark) Yager of Indiana; Randall Lloyd of North Ogden, UT; Greg (Susan) Connecticut, 6 grandchildren, and three great grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, her brothers Lester Schroeder and Brian Schroeder,
