Patricia Lee CONROY

Obituary Condolences

Patricia Lee CONROY 1941 ~ 2012 For many years Pat taught Danish and Old Icelandic at the University of Washington, making significant contributions to our knowledge of Old Icelandic sagas and Faeroese ballad. After illness forced an early retirement, Pat found pleasure in maintaining her bird-friendly garden, following the adventures of Inspector Montalbano and attending Seattle Baroque Orchestra / Early Music Guild concerts. Pat is survived by her sister, Faith Niles, of Del Mar, California, and her brother, Michael Conroy, of Corinth, Texas. That she bore her illness with gallantry and grace will come as no surprise to the many who were touched by her teaching. Remembrances are suggested to the Seattle Baroque Orchestra / Early Music Guild or to the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.
