Long-time resident Brenda Patrick passed away on February 12, 2012. Her wish was to be cremated and remembered by family and friends at an informal service, with no flowers or donations.
Phil Ogden, her husband, led the service, which was held on May 5 in the Civano Activity Center. He showed pictures of Brenda, depicting her life, family and friends.
There were many in attendance, representing family, friends and the numerous groups with which she had been associated, including many of her friends here in Civano. A light Mexican buffet was served, honoring Brenda’s fondness for the food acquired during her years in Las Cruces prior to coming to Tucson.
She will be remembered for many things, including her support of community-building efforts, and especially for her love of books, a passion she shared with many including the children at the Civano Community School.
Thank you, Brenda, and travel well.
