Caroline Mae “Patty” Duryea, 81, of Alto, MI, passed away peacefully at her
home on November 23, 2020, with her family by her side. Patty was born in

Cisler, Tom (Barb) Barnaby, Joan (Norm) Buer, Ruth (Roy) Vorhees, Diane Playter,
and many nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her parents: Alvin

The family wishes to extend their gratitude to Faith Hospice for their loving care
and support.
