On October 29, 2018, surrounded by her family, Patricia returned home to her Heavenly Father after suffering a heart attack. Patricia was born March 16, 1943, to Ola Mae West and Henry Brandon in Ada, Oklahoma. She spent most of her life living in Modesto, California where she gave birth to two beautiful children Timothy and Sherry. While spending these years as both the mother and father she worked two and three jobs to make ends meet. There was never a day that went by that her kids didn’t know they were loved.
Pat had a personality that left a positive impact on everyone’s life she came in contact with. It was never hard to fall in love with this beautiful woman.
As the kids got older Patricia was led to Tucson, Arizona. Here she would open her own Adult Care Facility. She was a woman who always took care of others before herself. After a few years in Arizona she was led to Utah where her kids and grandkids lived. Here she would help raise her grandkids when their parents had to work, growing a bond with them that many wait a life time to have. Here she would also meet many people and form many relationships that would last a lifetime.
The last 10 years you could always find her working hard at South Ogden Costco with a contagious smile on her face. She worked as a member service employee, always putting smiles on little ones faces when she marked their parents’ receipts with smiley faces. You could also always see her Christmas Eve dressed as Santa Clause handing out candy to all that came in. Her spunky hair, nails and attitude will definitely be missed at Costco.
For the last year and a half Patricia was able to spend unforgettable time with her beautiful great-grand baby Taelynn Tucker, who would become her pride and joy. She always looked forward to her daily visits and slobbery kisses. These memories will last a lifetime for Taelynn and family. She will never forger her Nana loved her.
Patricia is survived by her daughter, Sherry Christensen; grandchildren, Shelby (TJ) Mackese, Emily (Wes) Taylor, Preston (Kari) Serb; and great-granddaughter, Taelynn Tucker.
She is preceded in death by her mother, Ola Mae West; father, Henry Brandon; son, Timothy Hatton; granddaughter, Kristina Hatton; brother, Ronnie Merrell; and nephew Shane DuBrutz.
