Patricia 'Pat' Buen

Patricia ‘Pat’ Buen, 75, Jamestown, formerly of Velva, ND died Monday, April 09, 2018 in a Jamestown long term care facility.

Pat was born January 6, 1943 in Lake Charles, LA to Captain Herbert and Laura (Griffin) Wilson.  She grew up in Berthold, ND and graduated from high school with the class of 1961.

Pat was united in marriage to Gene Buen on April 14, 1961 in Palermo, ND.  They resided in Minot for a couple of years.  Pat worked at First National Bank.  They moved to Velva in the fall of 1964.

Pat spent the next two decades of her life as a full-time mother dedicated fully to her children and their activities.  Pat returned to the banking world with People’s State Bank in Velva working for 25 years, retiring in 2013. Gene passed away May 23, 2015.

Pat was a member of Oak Valley Lutheran Church, where she served as the secretary for 13 years, was involved in Bible school, church circles, ladies’ aide and Sunday school over the years.  Pat was a longtime member of the Early Bird Homemaker’s Club.

Pat enjoyed gardening and took great joy in growing flowers.  Baking and sewing were also on the list of her many talents.  She loved (most of the time) her role of coach’s wife and baseball mom to her own children and the hundreds of young men she traveled thousands of miles to watch every North Dakota summer.

Pat’s loving family includes her children, Dianna (Mark) Pollert, Jamestown, ND, Daniel Buen, Williston, ND and David (Renata) Buen, Minot; grandchildren, Ashley (Corey) Eagleson, Trevor (Kari) Pollert and Ella and Everly Buen; great-grandchildren, Coley and Cadence Eagleson; sister, Kathy (Joe) Baber, Garrison, ND; brother, Jim (Sharon) Wilson, Bismarck; mother-in-law, Joyce Buen, Omaha, NE, sister-in-law, Pat Grant, Omaha NE; brother-in-law Ron (Pat) Buen, Victoria, British Columbia, along with many nieces and nephews.

MessageThanks be to God for the lives of Pat and Gene Buen. It was great to babysit Dianna and Danny, and then to watch your parents with David. School, church, Girl Scouts, and community activities were all special times. How very blessed we are! Prayers and love support you all.

MessageDear Buen Family,

We truly enjoyed being involved with both Gene and Pat during our seven years in Velva and beyond, They were both wonderful, fun people to associate with.

We have prayed for both them and you. The picture of Pat in the obituary really looked like the lady we associated with in Velva. They left a wonderful legacy for the Buen family.
