Pat was born in Los Angeles, California to Harry and Ann (Kochevar) Pedersen. She grew up in Los Angeles until 1958 when her parents moved back to the Ladysmith area. Prior to 1958 Pat and her family made trips back to Wisconsin on Route 66 for a number of years to visit family in the Ladysmith and Sheldon area. Pat was a 1964 graduate of Ladysmith High School.

On December 23, 1969 she married Michael Klich Jr. at the Little Brown Church in Nashua, Iowa. Pat and Mike moved to Cumberland, WI. in 1970.

From her childhood camping days in California, Sequoia National Park was always her favorite place.
