Pat L Foelske, 70, entered the gate of heaven May 9th, 2019, greeted by Jake, Grey Cloud, Shane, and beloved parents, and brother Dennis. She grew up in Princeton, Wi, Sycamore and Harvard, Il. She Graduated from Wisconsin State University-La Cross, Wi with a degree in social work. She had the ambition to become a police officer since the age of eight, much to the chagrin of her parents and family.

After college she moved to Denver/Aurora, CO area. She worked at the Aurora Stables prior to being hired by the Greeley Police Department (GPD) in 1971.

She began her duties as the first female “Patrolman”, on the GPD, receiving promotions to Sergeant and Lieutenant. She worked in patrol, detectives and internal affairs.

She was active in many law enforcement organizations during her career.

In 1992 she realized the dream of her life, combining her love of horses and her love of law enforcement when she was able to join the Weld County Sheriff’s Posse and receive training as a mounted law officer.
She was recognized as a Greeley Police Department mounted police officer and participated in many once-in-a-lifetime opportunities. She received certification as a mounted police techniques instructor in 2001 from the University of Louisville, KY. Last August she was awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Weld County Sheriff’s Posse.

She retired from the Greeley Police Department December 2007 with the rank of Lieutenant. She continued to assist with law enforcement events as well as community events and remained a member of the Posse.

Pat is survived by siblings, Jan (Aaron) Tassler, Sandy Plantz, Denise (Joseph) Cain, Donna and Bob (Victoria) Foelske; nephews, Robert (Amy) Foelske, and Ethan (Morgan) Plantz; niece, Danielle Foelske; Mary Schwartz ; and our adopted sister, Clare Wilson Weir.

Special appreciation to Seven Lakes Memory Care and Halcyon Hospice.

A Celebration of Life will be at 1:30pm on Thursday May 16th, 2019 at the West Greeley Baptist Church, 3251 W. 22nd St, Greeley, CO, 80634.

“Do not weep for me, for I’ve gone riding with our Lord. I’ll be watching over you all from above.”

I met Pat in May 2000 when I joined the weld county posse. She helped me from the first. Pat was always a wonderful person and I will always think of her as the family I never had.
