Patricia was born in Jerome, Idaho on August 12, 1939, to parents Charles and Florence Elbrader, the youngest of four children. Her family had limited means but abundant love. In her early years they lived in various locations in Idaho and California. For a time her father managed the riding stables in Squaw Valley where she may have developed her lifelong love of horses. The family landed in Sacramento in 1952, where Pat attended McClatchy High School. In her sophomore year the family moved to Penryn and she attended Placer High. It was there that she met the love of her life, Marvin. The two were married in June 1957, just a month after she graduated Placer.
Together they raised four children. In 1961, Pat went to work for the Placer County Sheriffs Department as a dispatcher. Over the years she held a variety of positions in the Sheriffs Department and District Attorney's Office. Her favorite assignment was Coordinator of the Search and Rescue unit which was commanded by her husband Marvin and where her entire family served as volunteers. For 63 years she was an active member of St. Joseph's Catholic Church.
Her favorite things in life were horses, green grass and the outdoors. She was a three-time finisher of the Tevis 100 Mile Ride. Nothing delighted her more than spending time with her family. She strived to make every holiday and birthday special. Her Christmas stockings were legendary. Her boundless energy and caring for others is well known. She was never too busy or tired to help a family member or friend in need. She inspired all who were fortunate enough to know her and she made us all better people.
Patricia is survived by husband Marvin; sons Dennis (Shannon) and Daniel (Susan); daughter Diane (Keith Arellano); son in law Steven Mancebo; grandchildren Leslie, Nick, Jamie, Joey, Christopher, Trevor, Tyler, Justin, Taylor and great grandchildren Emma, Camille, Zephram, Sawyer and Claire.
She was preceded in death by her parents Charles and Florence Elbrader, daughter Denise, grandson Blake, brother Jesse Elbrader and sisters Theresa Claiborne and Carol Zappala.
We will never forget your unconditional love and how you touched our lives. Your spirit will remain and guide us forever.
Due to Covid-19, a private ceremony will be held for family only.

I was so saddened when Marvin called to tell me of Patty's passing. Although I moved 15 years ago, Patty and I stayed in touch each Christmas. Patty taught me so much about horses and riding. I will never forget the many hours Patty J, Patty D, Keven Besana and I spent in the saddle, riding for pleasure and work - nor will I forget the many hours spent sitting in her kitchen tasting the many dishes she cooked. Many a year Patty and I rode drag in the early morning hours for Tevas and the 100 mile run. Patty was one of the kindest people I ever met - always had a positive word and smile. I am so sorry for your loss Marvin, I know how much you will miss her - the heartache in your voice last night said it all. If you need anything, please call. Rest in peace Patty and we will ride again! Love to you and yours.

I had the pleasure of working with Patty and Marvin at the California State Fair for a number of years as a mounted patrol police officer. While riding patrols together Patty and I would be asked by fair attendees if we were mother and daughter. We would both laugh and occasionally I would refer to her as "mom". I so enjoyed the opportunity to share our love of horses while engaging with the public in a positive way. Patty proved herself to be a successful career woman, community volunteer, wife, and mother. I am saddened by the news of her passing and will always remember her smile, compassion toward others, and youthful outlook on life. My prayers go out to Marvin and the entire family!

I am grateful for knowing Patti, who was our coordinator at Placer County Sheriff's Office for Search and Rescue (SAR).
She did many functions for SAR besides coordinating our daily needs. She was a Hug-a-tree program presenter to youngsters. She was instrumental in inviting Ab Taylor, who was a tracking exert for the Border Patrol and who came to Placer County several times.
I recall the year, when she took our SAR teams to the Oakland Fire. She arranged for our team to stay at her relative's night before the search, which kept us in tip top shape for the search operations.
Captain Marvin and Deputy Joe Jacinto, I sympathize for your loss. My prayers are with you and your family.

The world lost so much when Pat left us. She was always kind, funny, loving and cheerful. We are so blessed to have had her in our lives for 20+ years. She loved our grand kids like they were her own. She was so proud of her family. I never met anyone that didn't love her. I always tell people that when I grow up I want to be just like Pat Jacinto. I still do. Marv-we are here for you. Anything you need or want just ask. We love you like our family. We wish you peace.

I had the privilege of knowing Patty by being a member of the mounted unit of the Placer County Sheriffs Department Search and Rescue unit. Patty always had a smile on her face and kind words and encouragement for everyone. She and her husband Marvin have been friends for 40 years and I will miss her. Marvin I can’t tell you how sorry I am for your unbelievable loss, prayers for you and your entire family.

Pat was such a good happy person and friend to me. We did a lot of things together in the 90s. She was our small team leader when we searched at the Oakland fire, she helped me with insights when I worked at Placer County OES and just talking horses. Never had a mean word for any man or horse. Always helpful. I will miss her. My sincere condolences to Marvin and the Jacinto family

Julie and I were extremely saddened to learn of Patricia's passing. I first meant Patricia when I joined the Placer County Sheriff's Search and Rescue Unit back in November 1985, and have continued to serve. She was a wonderfully helpful individual throughout her assignment as the liaison to our unit until she retired from the Sheriff's Department a number of years ago. Julie and I would see Marvin and Patricia at St. Joseph's Church in Auburn almost every Sunday. We always had fun in seeing who could get to the Edelweiss Restaurant in Old Town Auburn after church first to have breakfast. Marvin, our deepest sympathy goes to you. If there is anything that we can do, please let us know.
