Patricia Frances Tydlacka was born in Moulton, Texas and passed away Wednesday, September 29, 2021 at the age of 74 in Katy, Texas. She was born to Joseph Frank Jasek and Agnes Bernadette Lev Jasek.
Patsy was married to Leonard Tydlacka for 53 years and has been a well-respected member of the Katy community for over 50 years. She loved dancing and listening to polka music. During her work years as a teacher’s aide in Junior High School, she created a warm and comforting environment for her students. Anyone that knew her could testify that she worked very hard at teaching students how to focus and put forth their best effort. Her title was “teacher’s aide” but she operated a high level of interaction with her students. She had a way of delivering teaching material that was both powerful and gentle at the same time. She had control of every student’s attention span. Patsy went beyond her job description by making lessons incredibly interesting and profoundly tailored to each student's learning style.
Not only was she a die-hard Katy Tiger fan, but she also loved the Houston Astros, Houston Rockets, and the Dallas Cowboys. She treasured her friends and family. She valued the relationships that she had with each and every person that was a part of her life.
Patsy is survived by her husband, Leonard Tydlacka of Katy, Texas; her two daughters, Christy Thompson and husband, Rodney of Lakeway, Texas, Shauna Tydlacka of Katy, Texas; her granddaughters, Kendall Thompson and Mallory Thompson; her brothers, Joe Jasek and wife Kay of Victoria, Texas, Charlie Jasek of Houston, Texas and Bennie Jasek and wife Barbara of Praha, Texas, and numerous other relatives and friends.
She is preceded in death by a son, Shannon Lee Tydlacka, her parents, Joseph and Agnes Jasek, brother James Jasek; sister, Lillie Zimmerhanzel; sister-in-law, Geri Jasek; brother-in-law, Gary Zimmerhanzel; and nephew, Darrell Jasek.
