Patricia Ann Morrison was born on November 15, 1937 in Page, NE to James and Bernice (Young) Morrison. She lived at and attended St. Mary’s Academy until she graduated from St. Mary’s High School in 1955. Patricia married Dude Burival on December 28, 1959 at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church. They made their home on the family farm north of O’Neill.
Patricia’s faith was very important to her, as was her volunteering. She volunteered for the Holt County Election Commission, helped the REA with their elections, was a 4-H group leader and delivered Meals on Wheels. Patricia enjoyed gardening and a cooking for her family. She made butter, canned pickles and made her own bread. She loved spending time with her family. She will be remembered as a straight shooter who always told you what she was thinking.
Patricia is survived by her three daughters, Mardy Ollendick and her husband, Robert of O’Neill, Terri Burton and her husband, Jay of Lincoln, and Judy Burival of Lincoln; six grandchildren, Heather Ollendick, Marcus Ollendick, Miranda Ollendick, Bryton Burton, Camdyn Burton, Drayton Burton; three great grandchildren, Hailey, Kyden, and Ella; one sister-in-law, Louise Morrison-Wood of Grand Island; a niece and a nephew.
Patricia was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Dude in 2004; and her brother, James Morrison in 1987.
