Patrisha Anne Doscher-Good|
After a courageous battle with cancer, Patrisha passed away at her home in Kent, WA on May 30. She was 63 years old.
She is survived by her husband, Kevin S. Good, her daughter Ford Devine Ness-Doscher of Auburn WA and stepdaughter Lindsay Ilene Good of Seattle, WA. She is also survived by her brother, Michael Allen Doscher of Kuttawa KY, and a grandson, Sheyne Thomas Claflin of Mansfield, WA.
She was preceded in death by her parents, William Edwin Doscher and Verna Alice Doscher (ne;e Ford).
Pat was born in Chicago. She grew up in South Chicago until second grade, then moved to Wilmette. She graduated from New Trier High School in 1967 and the University of Washington in 1971. She earned her Masters Degree and Certificate of Advanced Studies beyond the Masters in the Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works from the State University of New York in 1977.
After time spent practicing art conservation at the DeYoung Museum in San Francisco, she was employed by the Boeing Company in 1979 as a material scientist for the Defense and Space division. Her work there on environmentally-preferred materials and processes resulted in four US patents and a Boeing Special Invention award. Later in her career, she moved into the Commercial Aircraft division, where she led the Environmental Health and Safety Organization for Boeing Commercial Airplanes Global Partners.
Pat loved her family, her many friends, her career and her life. She was a giving and forgiving person, a talented scientist and inventor, a caring wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend. We will all miss her terribly.
No memorial service is scheduled. In accordance with her wishes, her ashes will be scattered at Grand Canyon National Park.
