About this Article

If there's someone who lived a full life, that's Juil Patricia "Pat" Wasmond. Wasmond and her husband, Bob, raised 11 children, and made a lasting impact on the lives of countless others by starting the Little Angels in Elgin, and opening Lolly's Dollhouse and Miniature store in 1971 in Elgin. "It boggles the mind, how one person can accomplish all of that in a lifetime," said her daughter, Shelley Lewis of Elgin. Wasmond died Sept. 2 at age 87.
