Patricia Ann Hegwer, 79, passed away Thursday, July 19, 2012. Patricia was the daughter of George and Becky Sharman and was born in Albany, Ga., on Dec. 20, 1932. She was the second of five children.
Upon graduating from high school, Pat joined the Air Force and was stationed in San Antonio, Texas. It was there she met her husband, Frank, to whom she was married for nearly 60 years until his passing in January 2011. Together, she and Frank raised three sons while Frank continued his Air Force career.
They lived in many different locations, including Japan and Puerto Rico, before retiring in 1970. Upon his retirement from the Air Force, they moved to Sunspot, where they lived for many years until eventually retiring permanently and moving to Alamogordo.
Both Pat and Frank were very active in the Alamogordo Elks Club and enjoyed traveling in their RV.
Throughout her life, Pat enjoyed many types of hobbies, including cooking, gardening, oil and water color painting, and making baskets. Patricia was known for her generosity and her love for her husband and family. She was at her happiest when she was in the kitchen cooking for family get-togethers.
Patricia is survived by her three sons Bruce and wife, Edie, of Albuquerque; Ben and wife, Jil, of Rifle, Colo.; and Stephen and wife, Christina, of Alamogordo; five grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.
A memorial service will be held Tuesday, July 24, 2012, at 11 a.m. at Our Savior Lutheran Church in Alamogordo.
The family asks that in lieu of flowers and food, donations be made in Pat's name to her two favorite charities - Our Savior Lutheran Church and Dolly Parton's Imagination Library of Otero County.
