Pat Spoonheim had been playing at the Sip 'n Dip ever since she got the gig on a fluke. She's been an Electric City icon for over 60 years. 

In an interview from 2018, she said it was "fate, I guess. It was the guy that was playing in here's vacation, and I was supposed to be here for one week and he blew town and never came back. Before I’d played here I'd never played a piano bar in my life."

She will be greatly missed in the community.

The obituary for Pat Spoonheim has been posted to the Schnider Funeral Home website here.

Memorial contributions are being taken following Pat Spoonheim’s passing at the First English Lutheran Church and Peace Hospice according to the obituary.
