Obituary for Patricia Carey Macho

Patricia Carey Macho passed away peacefully on August 15 with her beloved partner, Bob and family by her side. She was born in Menominee, MI to John and Lois (Levandoski) Macho, and moved to several cities including Minneapolis, MN, Phoenix, AZ, and Neenah-Menasha, before settling in Oshkosh.

Carey graduated from UW-Stevens Point and earned her MBA and Master of Special Education at UWO before embarking on a 28-year teaching career that began in Racine, WI. She returned to Oshkosh to teach at Jacob Shapiro Middle School. She was a dedicated teacher who brought humor and humanity into her classroom. She was respected by her peers and was a wonderful mentor to her student teachers throughout her career. Carey was an avid reader and lifelong learner. Her curiosity about the world developed into a love of travel and she was always eager to travel and explore other countries. Some of her favorite places were Florence, Italy, and Barcelona, Spain.

In addition to being a strong, independent woman, Carey was thoughtful, generous and a devoted friend who always took time to listen without being judgmental. She had a great wit and could make you laugh even (and especially) when you were down. She will be greatly missed!

Carey is predeceased by her parents; and sister, Cindy. She is survived by her life-long partner, Bob Misky; cousins, Jeff Levandoski, Sara (Levandoski) Bartlett, Lucy Levandoski and Tom Levandoski. She also leaves many, many friends whose guts she loved.

She will be interred in the family plot at St. Margaret’s Cemetery in Neenah, WI. There will be no formal services, but a celebration of her life will be held sometime in the future.

The family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the healthcare professionals and staff at Aurora Medical Center ICU for their care, support and compassion.
