Pat Kogele was born in Omaha, Nebraska to Robert and Gertrude (Burr) McGill.

When she was young, Pat loved to swim and play piano. While attending North High School, she was a highly-awarded marksman on the school’s competitive shooting team. Pat had many friends and enjoyed parties, school dances, and social events.

After graduation, Pat went to work at Mutual of Omaha, where she met and later married Richard Carritt. Together they raised two children, Kim and Kevin.

Pat was an avid reader, enjoyed playing bridge, studying history of all types, and always helped with her children’s school and extracurricular activities, including Girl Scouts, and PTA. She had a philanthropic spirit and loved animals.

Pat was an enthusiastic, lifelong learner. She began pursuing a degree in education while her children were still young, earning her bachelor’s degree and a teaching certificate. After a divorce, she started working for the Omaha Public School District and later continued her education, earning two Masters Degrees, one in counseling and one in education.

During her career in education she had many roles, including classroom teacher, principal, and counselor, the latter she found especially rewarding. Pat helped to run a summer camp for disabled kids, and volunteered for years at CASA, as a court appointed child advocate for abused and neglected children. Pat retired from OPS in 2002.

Pat married Mel Kogele, in the late 70’s and happily became stepmother to Mel’s adult children. The couple enjoyed entertaining their many friends and family, and went on many marvelous adventures together. Sadly, Mel passed away in 2007.
