Judi Patterson, age 75 passed at home in Redondo Beach, California on Saturday, June 11, 2016 after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in September of 2015.

Judi was born in 1941 in Los Angeles, California to Joseph LeRoy Amos and Elanor Glade LaMont (AKA, Peggy Hill). After graduation from Washington High School Judi attended College at University of Southern California and while starting a family in between finished her BA Degree at Cal State Dominguez Hills in 1972. Judi continued her education while raising her family and received her Master's Degree in Clinical Psychology, M.A.-M.F.C.C. from Pepperdine University in 1975.
Judi began working for Kaiser Permanente in Los Angeles, California in 1976. She was later promoted by Kaiser and relocated to their Palos Verdes, CA offices 10 minutes from her home in Redondo Beach. She retired from Kaiser in 1998 to spend more time with her family and grandchildren and to enjoy her life.
Judi loved her husband, family, grandchildren and friends. She was always involved lovingly in their lives and always there when family or friends needed someone to listen, give advice, offer a hug or just someone to pick them up on a not so great day and try to make it better. She enjoyed travel, painting, gardening, reading, golf, and playing games with her grandchildren and others. Judi dedicated her life to her family and loved ones.
Judi's desire was to be cremated and have her family spread her ashes in a small private setting of her desired location. Her thoughts for family and friends is to celebrate her by living your life to the fullest every day you can while you are here on this earth.
In lieu of flowers the family asks the you donate to the Pancreatic Cancer Society Action Network that Wage Hope at 310-725-0025 or visit www.pancan.org. Please sign the guestbook at www.dailybreeze.com/obits.
