Deborah L. PATRICK
On October 7, 2016, Deborah Patrick passed away after a long battle with cancer. She was born in Sacramento, CA on November 22, 1953 and is survived by her husband, Monty Mayfield, parents William and Lucille Patrick, sister Cathy Patrick, aunt Betty Moore and many other relatives. William and Lucille, Deb's parents, put a high value on integrity and always "doing the right thing" which are values they instilled in their two daughters. Deb considered herself a very lucky person to have had the family she had and to have crossed paths with the dear lifelong friends she made over the years. She felt the number of those precious friendships far exceeded the saying "one can count their true friends on one hand". She graduated with a BS in Marketing from CSUS while employed for the State of California where she eventually worked for over 34 years, mostly for the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. She was appointed to the position of Warden during the last few years of her career, and credited her success to the many fine persons she had the pleasure of working with. Her hobbies included softball and snow skiing in younger years, horse competitions and a little ranch work in her middle years, and wine tasting,spending time with friends and telling "re-ride" stories in her later years. Humor played a big part in all three of these phases. Deb and her family would like to express their sincere appreciation for the kind, compassionate care she received from Dr. David Campbell, nursing staff Robin, Sarah, Kirstin, Dana, Emily and the technicians and office staff in the cancer care facility at the Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital. Her fine medical care often included moments of humor and friendship, which meant so much to her. Deb requested that no services be held. Donations in her memory may be made to any of the 6 charities she donated to for years: St. Judes Children's Hospital, Make-A-Wish, ASPCA, Livestrong Organization, Susan G. Komen Foundation or Wounded Warriors.
