Patricia Campbell Beaver Obituary
October 15, 1929 - July 15, 2016 Patricia Campbell (Pat) Beaver passed away peacefully on July 15, 2016 at the age of 86 in Palm Desert. A resident of Palm Desert for 30 years, she grew up and raised her family in Los Angeles. In addition to her large and loving family, Pat was surrounded all her life by many devoted friends. Pat retired in 1994 from 27 years in retail management in Beverly Hills and Palm Desert, including cosmetics district manager for Macy's Palm Desert. Upon retirement she devoted herself to volunteer work with Eisenhower Hospital, Emmanuel House and the La Quinta Senior Center where she was named Volunteer of the Year in 2005. Pat loved nothing more than spending time with her family and friends, playing Scrabble or cards, or sitting under an umbrella at Santa Monica Beach, talking with her children and listening to Vin Scully. And of course her afternoon glass or two of wine. In recent years she looked forward to family vacations on Balboa Island where she had spent many summers as a young girl. Pat was born in Los Angeles Oct. 15, 1929 to William Wilson Campbell and Doreen Kavanagh Campbell. She graduated from Marymount High School and attended U.C.L.A. She married James Beaver in 1948 and they had five children: James (Jane) of Palm Desert: Kathleen (Don Nowak) of Palm Desert: William, of San Francisco; Daniel (Deborah) of Moraga; and Timothy (Pamela) of Westchester. She is also survived by two sisters, Kay Benham of Norwalk, CT and Mary Appleby of La Jolla, as well as three grandchildren, Christopher, Campbell, and Callan, and many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her husband, parents, and her brother William Campbell and sister Jean Theresa Campbell. She was truly an independent woman and an example to her children of how to live a good life. Mom, to say we miss you doesn't touch our true feelings. We're thinking of you and will be for a very long time. A small family service is planned with a remembrance and celebration to follow later in the year. Donations to will be welcomed.
