Arnold was her great great grandfather. Her great grandfather was Hermanus Verstegen. He was son of Arnold and his first wife Anna Maria and born 1858.
Patricia does the upkeep of Arnold’s grave at the cemetery in Little Chute. This is a tradition that she has taken over from her mom and grandmother. Patricia traveled to the Netherlands in 2018 to find her Dutch roots. One of the places she traveled to was Zeeland, birthplace to Arnold Verstegen before he immigrated to Little Chute.
Patricia has no children. She is considering starting a fund so the grave of Arnold Verstegen will be taken care of after she passes away.
