Resident of Soquel
It is with towering waves of sadness and great rollers of emotion the Burchett and DeWitt families announce the passing of Patricia Louise Burchett.
Trish was a successful real estate agent for many years. Her time off was filled with family gatherings, caring for her beautiful garden, interior design projects, playing bridge, and making dolls. She was a master doll maker spending countless hours creating them for the special people in her life. Trish always felt that she was surrounded by the most loving family and the best of friends.
She was diagnosed with cancer in 2010. Through her treatment she never let cancer define her. With her positive attitude she lived each day to the fullest. Trish will be remembered for her kindness, sense of humor and great capacity to love; life is eternal and love is immortal. She will be missed and is etched in our hearts forever.
Trish is survived by her husband of 28 years, Vern; sister, Yvonne Hill; children Debi, Tim, Diane, Mat, Kristine and Mark; Vern's children Julie, Jeff, and 19 grandchildren. Trish was preceded in death by her son Michael.
A celebration of Trish's life will be held on Saturday, October 27th at 2:00pm at the Pacific Cultural Center, 1307 Seabright Avenue, Santa Cruz, CA 95062.
In lieu of flowers the family requests that donations be made in memory of Trish Burchett to Hospice of Santa Cruz, 940 Disc Drive, Scotts Valley, CA 95066.
