STELZER, Patricia "Pat" (Jacobs), 83, of Springfield, passed away Tuesday, October 22, 2019 at Springfield Regional Medical Center. Born in Springfield on September 7, 1936, she was the daughter of George K and Beatrice (Snook) Jacobs. Pat graduated from Northeastern High School in 1953. She married James Glea Stelzer on May 12, 1956 and they were married 57 years till his passing in 2013. One of Pat's first jobs was with the Springfield News-Sun where she wrote a byline on the Society Page.

Pat taught in the Springfield City School system for over 25 years at Schaefer Middle School, Springfield North and South High Schools and a short time at Clark State Community College. Pat loved history and writing and even had two books published during her retirement (Deadly Research by George & Dangerous Research by George.) One of Pat's favorite pastimes was theater. She volunteered her time with Music Stage and Springfield Civic Theater, not to mention helping with the directing and choreography of plays at Schaefer Middle School, Northwestern and Springfield South High Schools. Pat had many hobbies and interests such as being an avid reader, writing painting and trips to historical places. However, none brought her more joy than spending time with her grandchildren.
