Aug. 2, 1938 — Dec. 8, 2013

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.

Patsy was preceded in death by her son, Raymond Dean; and grandson, Jamie McKrell. 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.

A graveside service was held on Thursday, Dec. 16, at El Dorado Cemetery.

    Patti is Bright Star with a welcoming warm happy personality that drew people to her. She attended Friday Morning Club meetings at Janet Goeske Senior Center, and that is how I meant Patti. We shared love of animals, nature, and experience of having knowing and loving horses. I told her about the Tequesquite gardens as she lived nearby. My mother Doris Wright and I attended the filming of the Splash TV show with Patti. Getting to see the show required jumping some hurdles but on Patti's third try and Mom & my second try we were able to get good seats and watch it together. I never knew Patti was ill. She walked all over town, up and down hills. One hot day I found her walking by Tequesquite Park on her way home and gave her a ride the little distance remaining but it included the hill to her home. Aurora of FMC along with others are working at arranging a Memorial for her here in Riverside if that is OK with her family sometime in the future.
