In memory of
Patricia MacGregor April 11, 1931 - Oct. 7, 2016 Santa Cruz Patricia MacGregor died peacefully, surrounded by the love of her family, on October 7, 2016. She was preceded in death by her loving husband and soul mate, Stan. Patty is survived by her four children, Cindy MacGregor, Susan Christie and her partner Tom Buscovich, Ian MacGregor and his wife Lonnie Truax, and Courtney Welles and her husband Mike. She is also survived by her grandchildren, Jennifer Doyle, Ian Christie, Miles Shrewsbery, Christina Joseph, Nick Welles, Madeline Welles, Aaron Robinson, and Abigail Stokes, as well as nine great grand children. Patty met Stan while he was attending the Naval Academy. The military life brought them many adventures. They lived in Alabama, Ohio, Morocco, Washington, Coronado and Riverside California, before finally settling in Santa Cruz. At fifty, Patty decided to get her college degree and attended the University of California at Riverside, graduating with a degree in history. Their move to Santa Cruz brought them great joy and many new friends. The Cabrillo Choir played a big role in their lives and gave them the opportunity to sing at the Vatican, an experience they always treasured. Patty was an avid reader, and, with a glass of wine in hand, loved discussing books and current events with friends and family. Patty brought great joy to all who knew her. She was filled with gratitude for her family and all that she had, even with life's struggles. She will be greatly missed. A special thanks to the staff at Kindred Care for all the loving help they gave her. Remembrances and donations can be made to Hospice of Santa Cruz. A private memorial will be held at a later date.
