Patricia was many things; a teacher, an explorer, an adventurer; but mostly, she was a friend, a mother, and a grandmother.
She traveled to many countries where she created many memories and had so many funny stories to share from her travels.

During the Utah Winter Olympics in 2012, she was a volunteer nurse at the ski jump competition. She was a member of the Red Hat Society and a member of Beta Sigma Phi.
As a MOTHER, she was more than a friend or a shoulder to cry on, she was our families’ foundation. She was the most amazing woman. She planned massive family houseboat excursions, vacations and always made time for her grandkids by taking them on trips, going sledding, and much more. These adventures of ours will be greatly missed and we appreciate everything she did to bring us all close together.
Patricia was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She was a sunday school teacher, started a temple group that went to the St. George Temple weekly, and helped to start a ward tradition of A Day in Heaven.

She was the extra most bestest mom, grandma, sister, nurse and friend. She will be deeply missed…
