Patricia (Morrow) Dean died peacefully in her favorite place, South Lake Tahoe, surrounded by her family, following a brief illness with Melanoma, on Dec. 8, 2013. She was raised in Placerville, Calif., where she attended grade school and high school, then she moved to Riverside, Calif., where she spent the rest of her life.
Patsy was involved in many organizations, such as her childrens’ schools, El Dorado County Jr. Riders, Tequesquite Community Gardens, Goeske Senior Center, DANA, Friends of Mt. Rubidoux and Mission Bells Chorus. Her passions were the outdoors, animals (especially her horses and dogs, and she even had a pet Ocelot), equestrian, gardening, singing, biking, hiking, ballroom, square dancing and spending time with her grandchildren. All remember her as a giver with a big heart. She was always there to help family and friends.

She is survived by her brother, Richard Hosking and wife, Kristie of Placerville; children, Paul Dean of Riverside, David Dean and wife, Adriana of Irvine and Debbi McKrell and husband, Jim of Atascadero; grandchildren, Isabella (Zizi) and Luca Dean and Callie and Mia McKrell.
