Patricia Konig Bruhn
Patricia Konig Bruhn, longtime resident of Spring Hill, TN departed her earthly home on September 14, 2021 at the age of 75.
Pat was born September 24, 1945 in Lawrence County, TN. She was the 6th child out of 16 children born to Ernest and Lucille Konig. She was a 1964 graduate of Summertown High School. She married John Bruhn in 1967.
Pat worked as a seamstress for years, and kept busy with volunteer, community, and church activities. In 2017, she made one of her dreams come true when she opened My Three Girls Tea Room. Pat enjoyed her teatime with friends and family, and each visitor was blessed by her hospitality. Pat was a seasoned traveler and was always scheduling road trips and hiking trips. She also enjoyed nature and her time exploring the woods surrounding her home. She loved God and loved people and truly made the most of every day that she was given.
Unknowingly, she even left her friends and family with a sweet goodbye – these words were posted on her Facebook account the morning she took her last walk: “Everything happens for a reason. You may not see it now, but sooner or later, God will reveal why He let things happen. Always remember that His way is better than our ways. His will is beyond our will. Put your trust in Him. Amen.”
In addition to her parents and her husband, she was preceded in death by her brothers: Gene Konig, Dewey Konig, and Gerry Konig; “sisters-in-love”: Judy Konig and Doris Konig; and “brother-in-love”: Junior Shrader.
Pat leaves behind a loving family, including her son: Mike Bruhn; daughter: Terri Jones; her “daughter- in-love”: Allison Stewart Bruhn; and “son-in-love”: Ken Jones; grandchildren “HALOKEKE”: Hayden Jones, Logan Jones, Keaton Jones, and Kenna Jones; and her “Iowa princesses”, Loxton Bruhn and Isabel Bruhn. She is also survived by family in Indiana and South Carolina, including stepdaughter: Julie (Jack) Linnerud; grandchildren: Adam (Elizabeth) Linnerud, and Allie Linnerud; great-grandchildren: Ella Grace and Nash Linnerud. Pat was very proud of her large Konig family and went out of her way to show her love for each of her siblings. She will be missed by family members: Dean Konig, Betty Shrader, Kenneth (Ivie) Konig, Larry Konig, Jimmy (Joan) Konig, Ted Konig, Sulynn (David) Nelson, Beverly (Gary) Davenport, Debby (Bim) Dial, Ernestine (Randy) Curtis, Annette (Tommy) Long, Steve (Wanda) Konig; “sisters-in-love”: Jody Konig, Sheila Konig, and Shirley Konig; and many nieces and nephews.
Pat had many close friends that she loved as family. Some of her dearest friends were: the McCord Family, the Warren Family, the Moody Family, Dobbins Family, the Neal Family, Deborah Stokes, Kay Elliott, Inez Hardy, her Tea Room friends, Community Baptist Church, and a host of other friends.
A Celebration of Life service for Patricia Konig Bruhn was held Saturday, September 18, 2021, at 11:00 a.m. at Spring Hill Memorial Funeral Home with Dr. Mike Stalnaker officiating. Memorials may be made to Community Baptist Church. Williamson Memorial Funeral Home was in charge of all arrangements.
