Our beloved mother, wife, grandmother, and friend to many, passed away on November 25th, 2020 after a long battle with cancer. She was surrounded by her loving husband, children and grandchildren when she passed away in the comfort of her home.
Patty was loved immensely by all who knew her. She always showed compassion and concern for her family and those who she served. Patty was a proud member of Daughters of Utah Pioneers, J. Wylie Tomas camp as the chaplain, and gave “the most beautiful and heartfelt prayers” as described by Jarleen of the DUP society. She loved attending the Temple and was blessed to serve as a temple worker for 2 years.
Patty always lent an ear to listen and a shoulder to cry on, especially for her 8 children who love her dearly. She would give us her heartfelt advice without judgement. She would remind us to pray always and follow the commandments to have the Holy Ghost to guide us. Patty was a loving, devoted wife to her husband of 54 years. She was a great example of love, strength and dedication to the Savior, to her family, and all who knew her. She enjoyed knitting, crocheting, sewing, quilting, ceramics and all kinds of crafts. Patty was a wonderful cook and baker, always learning about health and nutrition and how to follow the Word of Wisdom. She enjoyed her knitting group, quilting group and book club. Patty loved spending time with her children and especially her grandchildren who range from ages 2 to 27. We love our mom more than words can express and we will truly miss her but we are grateful to know that we will meet again as an eternal family in heaven. Our family would like to extend our deepest gratitude to all of our mother’s friends, ward members and family who have served her in various loving ways including all the prayers throughout her lifetime and especially in the last few years.

What an incredibly beautiful tribute you and your family gave to your amazing mother... I am sure her heart is swollen with joy from the beautiful tribute that you and your family gave her and continue to give her through your incredible examples. She truly is a giant among men. Even though the times I was with your mom were brief on this earth she left a big and lasting imprint in my heart! I am so grateful for her stalwart example of a true disciple of our dear Father in Heaven and Savior Jesus Christ. She was an example of many Christ-Like Attributes. The ones that were so evident to me in my brief times spent with her and I am sure are so evident among all who know her are her Christ-Like love she shows everyone she comes in contact with and the Christ-like healing that love provides. Even just those few times I was blessed to be with her I was blessed immensely from this healing love that she so freely gave me...
I know that the resurrection is going to come much sooner than we realize and that you will be reunited with her before you know it!!!
If I could have one wish it would be to replace the pain and emptiness that you must be feeling right now in your heart with joy and peace. I am grateful for the quote that was shared at your mother's beautiful service that said, the pain felt right now is what will make your reunion with her that much more sweet and joyous.
Praying for all of you... Sending you my love.
My heartfelt condolences on the loss of the matriarch of your family. Although it was many years since I met your mother. She was a very lovely person. It is comforting to know she is now at peace and free of her physical illness and now on the other side... until she meets you all again. Love to your family.
Sincerely my love, Renee Pariseau
