Pat was born Dec. 11, 1941, in Arkansas, to Bud and Mutt Stinnett and was preceded in death by her parents and one brother, Gary Stinnett. She was a full-time caregiver to her son, Kevin, who has special needs. Her devotion to Kevin was unfailing as it was unselfish. She will always be remembered as a loving wife, mother and grandmother. She was so loved and admired by family and friends.
Pat attended El Dorado High School from 1956 to 1959 and graduated with honors and a 4.0 grade point average. She loved to bowl and had a perfect 300 game. Love of music was a big part of Pat’s life, along with NASCAR racing and the S.F. Giants. There was no bigger fan.
Pat was always spiritual, beginning at the age of six. She always walked with God. She became a member of the Baha’i Faith in 1974 and served as a secretary of the local Spirit of Assembly of Baha’i of El Dorado County.
