Patricia Merritt Bartholf Obituary
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our mom and grandmother, Patricia Merritt Bartholf, on Nov. 29, 2017, in Fairbanks. Her daughter and great-grandson were with her when she got her wings to heaven.
Mom was born in Phoenix, Arizona, on Feb. 10, 1937. At a very young age she moved to Fallon, Nevada, where she attended school up through the tenth grade.
At that time, she fell in love with, and married Dick Merritt. They had four children together. Mom lived life to the fullest, and what a journey she had. She was blessed with knowing the Lord and it showed in the person she was. After many years in Nevada, she moved to North Pole to be with her daughter and family, where she lived for five years.
She was preceded in death by her father, Buddy S. McDougall; her mom and step-dad, Helen and Barney; and her infant daughter, Donna Lynn Merritt.
There will be a memorial service in January in North Pole. In the spring, Mom will be laid to rest in Fallon, Nevada, with her baby daughter.
She is survived by her daughter, Pam Busby, of North Pole; son, Mark Merritt, of Billings, Montana; and son, Richard Merritt, of Mina, Nevada; along with numerous grand- and great-grandchildren.
