Patricia M. “Patty” Taylor, 64, of Chippewa Falls, town of Wheaton, died Wednesday, December 23, 2020 at Mayo Clinic Health System Eau Claire, due to ongoing medical issues.
She was born November 7, 1956 in Reedsburg, Wisconsin to Albert and Irene (Harding) Przybylski. She grew up in Chippewa Falls and graduated from Chi-Hi, class of 1975.

Patty loved farm life and raising livestock. Over the years, she raised many English Bulldogs. She enjoyed being outdoors, gardening and planting beautiful flowers. Her greatest joy was her family. Family was everything to her and her favorite past time was playing with her grandkids.
Patty battled with health issues for many years. In 2000, she was a transplant recipient and received a new pancreas and kidney.
