Patricia Meyers Deems

Patricia Meyers Deems died October 12 at age 80.  Born June 13, 1930, in the Dalles, Oregon, Patty became a lifelong resident of Seattle. An only child raised by her maternal grandparents and her Aunt Hazel, she graduated from Roosevelt High School in 1948.  Her love of people, ballet (she danced for 18 years), the beach, large dogs and decorating are memorable traits, along with those signature giant earrings! Patty’s humor and buoyant spirit encouraged many at the Northshore Senior Center, where she spent hundreds of happy hours over more than a decade.

    I loved Patty like a sister. We had so many laughs and cries together. She lit up a room as soon as she came in. She was a trooper, dealing with her health issue did not keep her down. She loved to shop the thrift stores and always had a little gift tucked away to give you when I came to visit her. I always shared my roses with her as she loved fresh flowers in her room
    I will always remember her as a true friend and will miss her. I hope she will reconnect with John when she reaches heaven.

    John Dreewes, my father, spent many hours visiting with
    Patty at Northshore. Her friendship made his final years
    some of the best in his life. We found her to be one of
    the sweetest ladies we have ever met. She always had
    a smile and never a complaint. God bless her.

    So sorry for the lost of such a warm loving person.People like Patricia bring such joy. I know she’ll be dearly missed. The promise from Almighty God helps us to not just to look back longingly to the good times missed , but He spurs us on with the grand promise of continued joy with those we lose to death by means of the resurrection hope.John 5:25-28. To see ones like Patrica enjoying life under the best of conditions Yes Jehovah God desires to return to us , loved ones asleep in death by awakening them to life on a Paradise earth.Luke 23:43 My sympathies.

    Patty meant a lot to my father John Dreewes and I. We cared deeply for her. She always brought smiles to our faces.
    I remember meeting her when she lived at her house and my Dad would take the Access bus to visit her.
    She loved to decorate her house with art work. As the years went by, we got to know Patty very well and she became a part of the family.
    I was so happy she was able to attend our family functions; my daughters wedding and meet my Grandson.
    Patty always loved to coordinate her outfits with jewelry, especially earrings. I loved to bring her earrings.
    She loved them all.
    The last couple years when both my Dad and Patty’s health problems became worse, I would make sure that they would still see each other three times a week at the Senior Center. I would always find Patty in the gift shop browsing the knickknacks. I would wheel her out to a table to meet up with my Dad for coffee and cookies. She loved the snickerdoodles. We spent many afternoons just talking about family and life.
    Patty passed away almost a year to the day after my father passed away and I will miss her so much.
    I am very glad that I was able to visit her shortly before she passed on.

    I don’t possibly know how to thank you all for being such an important part of my my mom’s life.
