Obituary for Patricia "Pat" Bourassa

A Celebration of Life with a short service will be held Wednesday, August 18, 2:00 PM to 4:30 PM at Great Life Fitness and Golf, formerly Worthington Country Club. Interment will be in St. Mary’s Cemetery in Worthington, MN.

Patricia (Julson) Bourassa of Worthington, MN passed away peacefully on April 29, 2020 at the age of 90.
Pat was born Christmas Eve 1929 to Edwin and Erma (Nace) Julson in Flandreau, SD. Shortly after graduating from Flandreau High School, Pat met her future husband Ron. They were married in Sioux City, IA in 1950 and made their home in Minneapolis, MN where she worked for Northwest Airlines. It was there that they started their family which eventually grew to be five loving children.
In 1960, the Bourassa family moved to Worthington, MN to purchase Oxford Bowl. Over the next 18 years, Pat and Ron (along with the kids) passionately created what became a centerpiece of Worthington entertainment. With 16 lanes, a full café and table games, the “Bowling Alley” was a way of life for Pat and her family.
Pat and Ron also made many close friendships through their involvement with the local Elks Lodge and Worthington Country Club. Pat greatly enjoyed bowling and loved playing cards of any kind with her great friends and family. Joining many of her friends for regular weekly Bridge games was a joyful mainstay of Pat’s later years.
First and foremost, Mom was always there for her kids and her calming presence is already missed.
Pat is survived by Steve (Teresa), Sioux Falls, SD, Jan Meyers, Apple Valley, MN, Deb (Greg) Peterson, Eden Prairie, MN, Tom (Candi), Eden Prairie, MN and Tery, Worthington, MN; along with 10 grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren. Pat was preceded in death by her husband Ron, her parents Edwin and Erma Julson, her brother Richard Julson, granddaughter Tricia Janssen Adelmann and her grandson Johnny Peterson.
She will be cremated and laid to rest next to her husband at Saint Mary’s Catholic Cemetery.
Donations to the family will be used for a Ron and Pat Bourassa Lake Okabena Memorial Bench.
