Patricia Myers

Patricia Elizabeth Myers was born January 6, 1950 in Long Beach, California. She was the second of four kids born to Robert and Esther Myers.

As a military family they lived in many different states, eventually settling in Seattle in 1965 when her dad took a job as a Boeing engineer. Pat graduated from Franklin High School (Seattle, WA) in 1968. She worked at Pacific NW Bell for many years before becoming a stay-at-home mom and opening a daycare.

Pat had a smile that would absolutely light up her face and an infectious laugh. She was very compassionate and was always the first to help somebody in need. She dedicated the last years of her career before retiring to working with adults with disabilities at Work Opportunities. She was very passionate about her job. She also did volunteer work at her local hospital. Pat was also involved with Girl Scouts as a youth and continued on as her two daughters’ Girl Scout leader for many years.

Patricia was an avid Seattle Mariners and Seahawks fan. She enjoyed going to the beach and the casino, reading and having lunch with her friends. She loved cats! She had cats her whole life. She referred to herself as “the crazy cat lady”. She especially loved black and white cats with white paws and named most of them Boots or Miss Boots.

She was a loving mother to three children and an amazing and very loving grandmother of 8 grandkids and two great-grandkids. She never forgot to send a card and/or a gift to every one of them for each birthday and holiday.

Patricia passed away at her home in Lynnwood, WA on September 23rd. She is preceded in death by her parents and her youngest sister, Kathlyn Stanberry. She is survived by her sister Linda Myers of Hayward, CA, her brother John (Lenore) Myers of Sparks, NV; her daughters Cindy Hoff (Adam Oster) of Sherwood, OR, Stephanie (Justin) Virgin of Happy Valley, OR; her son Brian (Heidi) Leggett of McMinnville, OR; eight grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. You will be greatly missed and will forever be in our hearts Mom.

Please send any condolences to Barton Funeral Home in Kirkland, WA to be forwarded to Cindy Hoff and Brian Leggett. There will be a small personal memorial with family and friends next year.

    We absolutely loved Pat from the moment we met her. She was funny and was able to hold her own with Shane’s banter. She was thrilled when we got our kids and they all knew her as “Grandma Pat.” Miss her already.

    I have such great memories of Pat that I will always keep with me. I had the opportunity to work alongside Pat for several years at Work Opportunities and for over a decade we worked together on the SEAFAIR Annual Holiday Cruise. Pat was incredibly compassionate about supporting individuals with disabilities and was responsible for providing numerous opportunities for her customers to access and contribute to their communities. She was often the first to volunteer her time to support individuals in attending Mariner games (it helped that she was a big fan!) as well as other recreational events. It wasn’t enough for her just to volunteer though, she always made sure she took it a step further to make the outing memorable. Every Christmas season she made sure to add reindeer antlers to her car so when customers arrived for the Holiday cruise, they would easily identify her! If you spent more than five minutes with Pat, you would know how much she loved her kids, grandkids, family, and of course….her cats. I am thinking of you Brian, Cindy, and Stephanie, and hope you take comfort in warm memories of your Mom. Rest in Peace Pat! You will be missed!

I have many great memories. Everytime Boo stands up on his hind legs l think he is saying hi “mom. Apple Bees will never be the same. 💔💔 Fellow Cat Lady.
