Patricia Marie Nevins Obituary
Nevins, Patricia Marie LA MESA, CALIFORNIA -- Patricia was born to John and Dorothy Wagner, on December 17, 1931. She was raised in West Los Angeles and graduated from St. Mary's Academy. While attending a Newman Club meeting at USC in 1950, she met William J. Nevins. They married August of 1951, with the desire to have 12 children. They were surprised with a baker's dozen, with the arrival of #13 in June of 1972. Patricia was an amazing woman, wife, mother and grandmother. Her ability to manage a busy household and juggle the everyday challenges life brings was an inspiration to all who have known her. She was the first college graduate in her family, and enjoyed a 17 year career as a senior escrow officer at San Diego Trust and Savings Bank. Upon retirement, she cared for her parents, and later her beloved husband, until his death in 2004. She and her husband were devout Catholic's with faith that could move mountains. She lived an example of faith, hope, and compassion; gifts that are evident in each one of her children. She is survived by all 13 children; Kathleen, Peggy, Timothy, Terrence, Cecilia, Maripat, Matthew, Michael, Patrick, Monica, Delia, Brian, and Annmarie, their spouses, 32 grandchildren, and 10 great grandchildren, as well as her sister, Nancy and her family. She leaves behind many relatives, extended family and a host of wonderful friends from Santa Sophia Parish as well as her dear friends at La Vida Real.
