Patricia McCauslin, age 90, of Edwardsburg, died peacefully at home Thursday, April 15, 2021 surrounded by her loving family just four days after her ninetieth birthday.
Her life began April 11, 1931 in Peoria, Illinois, the youngest of seven children born to James and Jessie McGann. She married Thomas John McCauslin December 10, 1950 in Cassopolis, Michigan. After more than fifty-eight years of marriage he preceded her in death December 30, 2008.
Pat was born to humble beginnings and ended up traveling the world with her husband. She was a homemaker (and wooden spoon ruler) who fiercely loved her family above all else. Having raised and lived with her husband and four sons, Pat was thrilled when daughters-in-law and granddaughters (and grandsons) joined the family. The family remembers her attending countless sporting and school events in support of her children and grandchildren.
Pat and her husband developed lifelong friendships, beginning when they lived on O’Keefe Street in Cassopolis. Family meant everything to her.
Patricia will be greatly missed by family and friends. She is survived by four sons, Michael (Lucy) McCauslin of Niles, Patrick (Rhonda) McCauslin of Edwardsburg, Mark McCauslin of Niles, Kevin (Sharon) McCauslin of Plainwell; five grandchildren, Thomas McCauslin, John (Kim) McCauslin, Jenifer (Mike) Bevins, Megan (fiance’ Adam Warner) McCauslin, Jason McCauslin; two great grandchildren, Avry Bevins, Madelyn Bevins; and a host of nieces and nephews.
In addition to her husband, she was preceded in death by her parents; three sisters, Louise Fitzgerald, Virginia McGann, Catherine McGann; and three brothers, James McGann, Donald McGann, and William McGann.
