Patricia Raty

1933 — 2014

Patricia Dorothea Raty passed peacefully surrounded by her family on May 7, 2014. She was born in Napa, Calif., to Dorothy and Patrick Dougherty. She lived in many towns and cities in California, Washington, Oregon and Montana until the age of 12, when settling in the pines of Gold Country in Georgetown.

Patricia said she would never leave and she didn’t. She attended Georgetown Elementary School and El Dorado High School. After marrying the love of her life, Lyle, on July 1, 1950, she worked in the Georgetown Veneer plant. She later worked in Placerville at the National Fruit Company until her career began at Auburn Faith Hospital as a Dietician. She retired after 30 years and devoted her time to her hobbies: worrying about her family, sewing, reading and making hangers for all those who appreciated her crochet talent.

Patricia was preceded in death by her parents; brother, Leonard; and sister, Beth. She is survived by husband, Lyle; brothers, Richard and Theodore; five children, Carla, Nora, Jess, Janell and Charmen; 17 grandchildren; and 13 great-grandchildren. She was a loving wife, mother and friend. She will be dearly missed by all. A memorial service is planned for Friday, May 16, at the Georgetown Community United Methodist Church, 2853 Church Street in Georgetown, at 2:30 p.m. A potluck reception will follow at Buckner Hall. Flowers may be sent to the church. Arrangements provided by Allen & Dahl Funeral Chapel. Call 530-365-5466 for more information.
