Patricia “Patty” Ann Handler, age 61, of Marion, Iowa, passed away at Living Center West on Sunday March 26, 2023, after a short battle with Leukemia. A Celebration of Life Service will be held at 2:00 p.m. Friday March 31, 2023, at Temple Judah in Cedar Rapids.
She was born in Norwalk, California on October 26, 1961, to Joan Novy Cutler and the late Donald Cutler. Patty grew up in Buena Park, California and was united in marriage to Mark B. Handler on October 13, 2001, in LA Habra, California.
Patty enjoyed shopping at outlet malls for the variety of stores they had there. She also enjoyed going to the Amana Colonies to check out bakeries and the old-time stores, plus going on day trips just to relax and enjoy the scenery.
I found Patty to be a great listener when I had problems that I needed help with, and she was always there for me when I needed her.
Patty is survived by her husband Mark, siblings, Mary Cutler, Theresa Murdock, Tom Cutler, brother-in-law, Jeff Murdock, her niece, Karissa Murdock and her nephew, Daniel Murdock.
Memorials may be directed to the family.
