Patricia September 8, 1946 January 1, 2018 Daughter, friend, sister, wife, mother, grandmother; Pat's love was a constant in her life and a source of inspiration for those that knew her ~ Diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer, her healthcare team provided comfort and presented her options. Her faith in God and the medical community allowed Pat to focus on those she would leave behind and the strength to endure chemotherapy treatment. Strokes in October 2017 took their toll, but Pat's perseverance and prayer enabled her to see her son and grandson's health normalize. On New Years Eve she fell into a coma while in her husband's arms and peacefully passed from the effects of a massive brain hemorrhage the next day, Pat donated her body to the JABSoM. She was a friend, companion, and inspiration to all who knew her, Pat was the real deal. We are thankful for the time we had together and know that she will live on in the memories of her husband, son, daughter, son-in-law, six grandchildren, 3 sisters and scores of friends. Pat's Celebration of Life will be held at Aiea UMC at 5:30 p.m. on May 29th. Contact neffpl@gmail.com for details. Donations will be provided to JABSoM or fredhutch.org.
