Mona Lou Patterson was preceded in death by her parents and a brother and sister. Pat was born in Emmett, Idaho. She graduated from Stephens College and The University of Arizona. She was a member of Chi Omega sorority and numerous campus organizations. Pat was head of the physical education department at Palo Verde High School. She taught physical education and coached the girls' volleyball team to many successful seasons. She loved golf and belonged to the "Dorado Swingers" and the ladies golf club at Pinetop Lakes. Pat was a master joke-teller and she never knew a stranger. You never needed a party when "Pat" was around because she made every situation a party. We will remember her as always being fun and forever a friend. She is survived by a nephew and her longtime partner, Joan Lackie. The family thanks the staffs at Atria Campana Del Rio, life guidance area, Sunrise Senior Living and the Hospice staff for all of their help. In lieu of flowers, friends may support the charity of their choice. A Celebration will be held at Casa Molina, 3001 N.
