1932 ~ 2022 (age 90) 90 Years Old


Patsy Jean (Bland) Beaschler, 90 of Rawson, Ohio passed away on September 16, 2022 at Promedica in Toledo, Ohio. She passed shortly after a fall at an assisted living facility in Fostoria where she roomed with her twin sister, Peg, for the over 3 years. She will be dearly missed, but she is finally free and with her loved ones !

Pat was born in McCutenville, Ohio in 1932 to the late Esther and Clarence Bland. She was preceded in death by her brothers, Donald, William and James R. Bland (2m), and husband, Don Beaschler (89). Pat also carried the special burden of a parent outliving her child in the passing of beloved daughter, Tammy Balega (46) as well as former son-in-law, Joe Balega (50).

 Pat and Don met at McCutenville High School, where she was a cheerleader and involved in multiple clubs. They married in 1952. Don joined the Navy for a 2 year stint and Pat followed him to Norfolk, VA, where their first child was born. They returned to Findlay, Ohio in 1954, where their other two children were born. They moved to Don’s lifelong dream, a farm, in Rawson in 1976 where they resided and farmed until Don’s passing in February 2019.  

Pat is survived by her twin sister, Peg (Jerry) Risner, Fostoria and her younger sister, Deb (Larry) May, Sycamore and sons, Terry (Kathy) Beaschler of California and Tim (Laura) Beaschler of Colorado. She was blessed with four grandchildren, Lindsay (Greg) Dollar, Andrew (Hannah) Balega, Mackenzie (Ian) Dunn, and Logan Beaschler. She was also blessed with five great grand-children Cambria, Memphis, Barrett, Baby Dollar (coming 2023) and Scarlet Balega.

Pat spent 10 years working at RCA in Findlay in the 1960’s. She became a full time mother and homemaker after the birth of her second child. She later became a farmer’s wife and all that entailed – driving grain trucks, helping repair equipment, guessing the weather and handling whatever/whenever was needed. She also provided housekeeping services for friends and several others. She enjoyed reading romance novels and sewing up until her sight started dimming in her 70s. She enjoyed attending her grandson, Andrew’s sports and school functions. Later on she loved dining out with Don. Old westerns on Grit TV was also one of her favorites.
