Patsy Nyberg

Patsy Ann Nyberg, beloved sister, mother, grandmother, great grandmother & dear friend passed away peacefully on May 13, 2024. Patsy was born in Kalamazoo, Michigan to James & Lula (Kniss) Armstrong on June 10, 1937. She grew up the only girl with three brothers but that only made her strong and ready to face the world. 

She grew up in Plainwell, graduating from Plainwell High School in 1955. While in High School, she met the love of her life Larry Nyberg.  They were married on November 10, 1956, and spend 55 wonderful years together.  Their family grew to include three children and they made their home in Plainwell. 

Patsy treasured her friends and had many wonderful memories with them.  She loved to cook and what she cooked was amazing.  Everyone was always welcome at her table. She always made enough food for an army and always had an empty chair for a guest. Patsy was also a very talented seamstress; making curtains and anything the family needed. Painting was another talent of hers and she enjoyed painting nature and painting rocks. She loved to be outdoors, spending time in her flower garden.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband Larry as well as her two older brothers: Jim and Jerry. 

Patsy is survived by her children: Scott (Cindy) Nyberg, Monica (Ray) Mikowski, Kerry (Carl) Wilkes; six grandchildren: Jennifer, Christopher (Vicki), Cassie (Kenny), Katie, Allie and Jill (Johnny); three great grandchildren: Dominic, Taylor and Hudson. She is also survived by her brother Jack as well as several special nieces and nephews and many close friends.

Patsy will be greatly missed by those who knew her, those she paved the way for, and those who were touched by her kindness and generosity.
