Randy & Pat Gentz

Randy retired from The Home Depot in 2014. He enjoys traveling with me on occasion but would rather be tooling around in our convertible or tinkering around on the computer or in the yard. I enjoy cooking/baking, entertaining family/friends, attending child care classes/conferences, watching most sporting events, movies, sunrises & sunsets, and I LOVE TO TRAVEL! Many years ago I created a list of things I wanted to see, experience or accomplish on my journey in life. Be sure to ask me about some of the interesting things I have "crossed off my list."


Jason, Staci, Owen, Kenna, & etta

Jason is the manager at Arnzen Arms in Eden Prairie. Our daughter-in-law, Staci, is an LPN at Park Nicollet Clinic in Eagan. Jason and Staci are proud parents of Owen, Kenna, and Etta. (We knew becoming Grandparents would be awesome, but WOW - we are thrilled beyond words with these precious little ones).


Jessie, Louie, & Sophie

Our daughter Jessie works for Bon Appetit as the Marketing Manager for the Central Region. Jessie is also in her 10th season working for the Minnesota Vikings organization; four years as a cheerleader and now in her 6th year on the Minnesota Vikings Cheerleading staff. Jessie is passionate about enjoying the outdoors, traveling, cooking, spending time with family and friends, and she loves kids...which is why she is occasionally a  substitute for us in our absence - the kids are crazy about her!


Grandma Fran

Grandma Fran will pop into Pat's Precious People every once in a while. Not only is she my mom, she has truly become "Grandma" to all of the kids in my care. She too, has experience caring for children, as she and my dad cared for # children in their foster home. She now lives in Lakeville, and a treat for us all to have her over.
