Patricia passed away peacefully on February 3, 2013 with her loving husband, family, and friends by her side. Patty was born in San Francisco and raised in Daly City, where she was runner up for "Miss Daly City" in 1966. She also lived in Pacifica for many years where she worked as a cocktail hostess at the Sea Bowl. Patty moved to Sonoma County (in 1993) where she and her husband Jack made their home in Windsor. She worked as a product demonstrator at Safeway and Raleys. Pat became a friend to many people in the community. She knew the true meaning of friendship and was always willing to lend a helping hand, an encouraging word or a loving gesture. Patty is survived by her husband Jack Yee, her brother Gene VanKoll, her sister Elaine Pagilaro, and her three sons, Ricky, Danny and Johnny Goodwin. She will be greatly missed but always remembered as such a blessing to us all. A memorial service to celebrate Patty's life will be held on March 2, 2013 at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church in Windsor at 11:00 a.m., followed by a reception at the Mary Agatha Furth Center.
