Patricia Lorraine Davis entered peacefully into rest in San Lorenzo, California on October 22, 2019. She was 89 years old.
Born August 21, 1930 to parents Ethel and Charles Short, Patricia graduated from Lodi Academy in 1948. Following high school, she completed a course of study at Highland School of Nursing in 1954, and attended Chabot College. She worked for 23 years as a nurse at Kaiser Maternity, at the Daily Review as a columnist, as a librarian, and wrote freelance feature stories in “Brightside.” In her free time, Patricia enjoyed membership in the Sorry Safari Touring Society (MG Club) and the Mid Peninsula Old Time Auto Club. She loved theater, computers, music, her friends, and her cats.
Patricia wrote, of her wishes: “If you want to buy flowers, give them to someone you love. If you wish to remember me, please donate to the Chanticleers Theatre in Castro Valley or April Showers in San Leandro.
Arrangements have been entrusted to Grissom’s Chapel & Mortuary.
