Daly, Patricia Eve Nance  
PATRICIA EVE NANCE DALY A beloved wife, mother, sister and friend, Patricia Eve Nance Daly went to be with her Heavenly Father on August 19, 2015. She is survived by her husband Con Daly III, daughter Theresa Morehead (Kevin), sons Conrad Daly IV and Toby Belfils, grandchildren Logan Daly and Erin Rose Davis, sister Joanie Nance of New Jersey, sister-in-law Brenda Zwiefelhofer (Jerry) and family, stepfather Alex Cernac, as well as various aunts, uncles and cousins in the Lodi area of California. She is also survived by many dear friends especially Eleanor Berg, Mary Schmedding and Nina DeVilbiss. Patricia was preceded in death by her father George Nance, mother Eve Nance Modlin Cernac, stepfather Kenneth Modlin, sister Michele Nance, and brother George Nance. Patricia was born in Vallejo, CA on Sept. 10, 1941. The family later moved to Lodi where she attended Catholic school. As a teenager they moved to Eureka where she attended Eureka High School, and having a beautiful soprano voice, sang in the choir. When she was 20, she was in the Miss Eureka Beauty Pageant and placed within the top ten contestants. On August 27, 1961 she married Con Daly III. Following their time in Alaska when Con was in the US Army, they settled down locally and had two children. She received her AA degree from College of the Redwoods and her BA degree from Humboldt State, with a major in psychology and a minor in philosophy. She worked part-time as a rental manager for several years and spent much time painting, replacing carpet and linoleum and mowing the lawns. Growing up as the eldest child in her family, she had learned to be like a second mother, so when she had children of her own, she had already acquired some experience. As a mother, she did a lot to insure that we had a good childhood. She was responsible, caring and creative. She attended PTA meetings and saw to it that her children had the right teachers. She allowed friends to visit at the house and hosted birthday parties for us. At times she would take us to Englewood (a family summer place near Redcrest) to swim and camp. She also took us to San Francisco, Redding, and other places in California to visit with family. She enjoyed hosting dinner parties where great food, music, and dancing were enjoyed by all. As a Christian, she spent many hours reading the Bible and praying for her family, friends, and other matters of concern. During times of conflict within the family she was the type of woman who did what she could to bring about resolution and harmony. St. Bernard's was her home church for many years. Singing was a ministry for her and she did that for over 30 years. Patricia loved to travel and had been to Australia, Israel, Italy, Hawaii, New York and other states within the US. She and Con had small homes in Cave Junction, OR and Clear Lake, CA, where they loved to get away with their pets and visit with friends. She attended many city council meetings in Eureka and took a special interest in re-establishing our railroad system. While living on Cummings Road, she organized a group of people to close down a dump, as toxic wastes were seeping into water systems. The dump was shut down in 2000. She was all of this and much more - a woman of great strength, faith, friendship and love. She will be missed by many and will continue to live in our hearts. We are most grateful and blessed to have had her in our lives. Now she can sing with the angels! Many thanks to Hospice of Humboldt and all their staff, especially to Francine and Kat who came as a team and helped so much. We appreciate everything you did. Private family services were held. Memorial contributions may be made to Hospice of Humboldt or a charity of your choice. Please sign the guestbook at under obituaries.
