LANCASTER – Patricia Gloria Siemens, age 65, of Lancaster, passed away on Tuesday, April 7, 2020, at Grant Regional Health Center in Lancaster. She was born on February 10, 1955, at Mason City Hospital in Mason City, IA. Patricia was the daughter of Jim and Gloria Mathews. Pat graduated from Mason City High School in 1973.
