Rosetta M. “Pat” Venerable Herrera , Age :69

Feb 20,1948---Feb 05,2018

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Pat, age 69, on February 5, 2018.  Pat formerly lived in Mission KS, but spent her last year at Pinnacle Ridge Nursing & Rehab in Olathe KS. She was born on February 20, 1948 in KCMO.  She graduated in 1966 from Cardinal Glennon High School.  One of the nuns at the school suggested she pursue a government career.  Pat was hired by Social Security Administration and worked there from 1966 until her retirement in 2005.  She was very proud of her career at SSA and made many friends there.  She traveled and went on cruises with these friends.  

Pat was a member of St. Agnes Catholic Church in Roeland Park.  She worked many hours at local food kitchens, serving the homeless.  She also donated to various charities, including support for a little girl in the Philippines.  She sent monthly donations for this girl until she was out of high school and always referred to her as "my little girl."   

Pat loved to play volleyball and organized games for years at local recreation centers.  She enjoyed dancing the salsa and watching movies at the Cinemark.  She was such a kind soul and rescued a litter of  kittens in her back yard, thus leading to a "clowder" of 40 feral cats that had to be removed.  

Pat is survived by her two children, Thomas (Mickey) Venerable of KCMO and Trinette Rogers, also of Kansas City.   

There will be a celebration of Pat's life on her 70th birthday, February 20 from 4-7 pm at Dos Reales at 8841 W 75th St, Overland Park KS, her favorite restaurant.  We encourage all to come and share stories about Pat.  She is now in the arms of the Lord at peace. 

We wish to thank the staff of Pinnacle Ridge and Good Shepherd Hospice for taking such good care of Pat.  Also a thank you to her good friend, Sandra McKinzie, who was a strong advocate and supporter


Donations in Pat's name may be made to Good Shepherd Hospice, City Union Mission or a charity of your choice.  Masses can be offered through St. Agnes.
