Patricia A. Lohrum

Patricia A. Lohrum, 89, of Versailles passed away at 2:45pm, Tuesday, January 11, 2022 at the Manderley Health Care Center in Osgood. Pat’s father operated a filling station in Cincinnati across from Coney Island and Pat was born there on March 17, 1932, the daughter of Alvier and Edna Lamb Steuer. She was married to Albert Lohrum on November 14, 1952, and he preceded her in death on March 31, 2006.

She was also preceded in death by her parents, and her brothers Fred and John Steuer.


Mrs. Lohrum was a 1950 graduate of Milan High School. She was a homemaker and had worked part time at the Spencer-Tyson Pharmacy in Versailles. Pat enjoyed collecting cookie jars and had amassed a collection of nearly 300, but her main joy in life came from doting on her grandchildren.
