Patty grew up in Ellensburg, WA attending Morgan Middle School and Ellensburg High School. She first moved to Tacoma after marrying William Clark. When this marriage was annulled, she moved back to Ellensburg and married David Minear on Feb. 2, 1977. After giving birth to two children, they divorced in 1984.
Patty returned to Tacoma and entered a relationship with life partner David Pease, having 2 children with him. Patty loved Tacoma and the lives she produced and touched in her too short life shall be forever changed by her passing. The laughter stilled, and the stories stopped, too soon. May God grant her the peace and fullfilment this life sometimes couldn’t.
We shall miss and mourn her passing every day for the rest of our lives, dear, dear, daughter, sister, mother, friend.
