Patricia "Patte" Scott

Scott, Patricia "Patte"
Patte was born October 24, 1925 in Peekskill, New York and left us December 1, 2011. She was a lawyer retired as a prosecutor from the Maricopa County Attorney's office. Records seem to indicate that she was the 2nd female attorney member of the Arizona bar. In life Patte was active and adventurous, a world traveler, known by and a friend to many. She is survived by two sons, Bill and Christopher, three grandsons and her husband of the last 27 years, Mel Gofstein. In discussions with Mel, this 86 year old woman and 89 year old man decided not to make a big deal of whoever went first. The survivor was to let the living know that on the anniversary of passing they should "lift a glass" and remember the past. Farewell, Our LOVE remains.
