Patti lived in Los Alamos for many years working at Brownell’s and Greg Ogborn’s before moving to Iowa where she met Chris. She worked for Easter Seals for 8 years before moving back to New Mexico to be closer to family and her beloved Jemez mountains. She worked for the Rio Rancho Schools and really enjoyed her job.
Patti loved to work in her garden and spent many hours there before her illness made it impossible. She always made sure the birds and hummingbirds that visited her yard were well fed.
A small service will be held on Saturday September 8th at 2p.m. at French”s Mortuary, 9300 Golf Course Rd. NW in Albuquerque for family and friends.
In Patti”s honor please feed the birds, plant a tree or a rose bush, and enjoy a beautiful New Mexico sunset.
