Obituary

Beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, daughter, sister, and aunt, Patricia Johannsen Biggs Williamson of Lyons, Kansas passed away on Thursday, May 12, 2022. She was 92 years old. A supremely generous, talented, and tenacious person, Pat was known for her fun-loving and no-nonsense spirit and her love of the outdoors, children, and dogs. In addition to her home in Lyons, Pat loved spending time in the cabin in Colorado that she built with her husband George, son Tom, daughter Debbie, and son-in law Mark. She spent many happy summers in Colorado driving up twisty mountain roads in her jeep, whitewater rafting, and enjoying the San Juan Mountain views in Creede, Colorado from the deck of their beautiful log cabin. Pat was born March 7, 1930 in Saxman, KS and is preceded in death by her parents, Albert and Althea Johannsen; her first husband, George Biggs; her daughter Debbie Wright; two baby daughters Susan and Sherry; her second husband J Fred Williamson; and her siblings, Leonard Johannsen, Marcey Parks, and Gerald Johannsen. She is survived by her son Tom Biggs of Lyons, KS; son-in-law Mark Wright of Helena, MT; and grandsons Bolton Biggs, Lyons; Andy Wright, Helena; and Kent Wright, Ft. Collins. Pat is also survived by grandaughter-in-law and Kent’s wife, Jenneva and their daughter and Pat’s great-granddaughter Sullivan, as well as her step-children Brad, Fred, and Mike Williamson, and Marcia Neal, and their spouses along with J Fred’s 12 grandchildren and 26 great-grandchildren. Pat graduated from Lyons High School in 1948. Pat and George were married in Lyons on May 23, 1948 and raised Debbie and Tom in Lyons. Pat was a homemaker and a rural mail carrier. In 1985, Pat’s husband, George, passed away. Pat sewed beautiful personalized quilts for her grandchildren and loved gardening and flowers. In the summer she shared her harvest of fresh tomatoes and vegetables with friends and family. In 1998, Pat married her longtime friend and neighbor J Fred Williamson. She often spent Christmases at J Fred’s cabin at Kanopolis and generously shared her Colorado cabin with the whole family. She loved to drive with Tom out to her farm near Lyons. Pat was always adventuresome–whether she was sky-diving on her 70th birthday or bravely fighting cancer. She will be dearly missed. The family will have a private graveside service. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be sent to Friends of Animals Rice County in care of Birzer Funeral Home.
