She was one of 11 children — 10 girls and one boy — and is survived by sister Ethel Howell of Wisconsin and brother Wesley McCoy of Idaho.
She leaves behind four children: Nadine Gray, Barbara Reese, Robert Turrell, Jr. (Tina) and Terri Turrell, all of Mariposa. Patt had six grandchildren, six great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild.
She had a busy life, including working at a factory, a bookbinder, as a retail clerk, motel night auditor, candy company distributor and even a singing cocktail waitress.
She and her husband Bob enjoyed riding his Harley for years and taking the family on many camping trips. She also enjoyed singing and playing the harmonica at karaoke. Internment will be private. A memorial service will be announced. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Manna House.
