PATRICIA JANE McCUTCHAN
1924-2018
Patricia Jane "Pat" McCutchan was born in Mankato, Minnesota on January 7, 1924.
Pat earned a diploma in nursing from the Presentation School of Nursing-McKennan in Sioux Falls, South Dakota in 1945. Shortly after graduation, she moved to San Pedro, California, where she lived for almost 40 years. During her years in San Pedro, Pat worked as a private physician office nurse, as a Red Cross nurse, and as a nursing supervisor at San Pedro Hospital, now known as Providence Little Company of Mary Medical Center San Pedro.
Pat moved to Temecula, California in 1987 with her husband, Virgil Ray "Mac" McCutchan, the former owner of San Pedro's landmark Seaside Pharmacy, established in 1889. She continued to commute to San Pedro to work as a nursing supervisor at San Pedro Hospital until the 1990s, while also working as a nursing supervisor at Inland Valley Hospital in Temecula.
Pat was an active member of the Colleagues, a fundraising auxiliary of the San Pedro-South Bay Assistance League. In Temecula, she joined the Assistance League of Temecula Valley, where she particularly enjoyed working in the Assistance League Thrift Shop. In recognition of her many years of commitment, in 2007/2008, Pat was awarded the Assistance League's Ada Edwards Laughlin Award of Temecula Valley for outstanding service.
Pat is survived by her five children, Susan (John Spaulding), Nancy Nottingham, Jayne (Hans Hufschmid), Karen (Brian Dreisbach) and Heather McCutchan, as well as her two 'adopted' daughters, Catherine Sih of San Jose, California and Madeleine Dichamp-Douspis of Paris, France. In addition, she leaves eight grandchildren and three great grandchildren.
Services will be held on Thursday, February 15, 2018 at 1pm at Temecula United Methodist Church, 42690 Margarita Road, Temecula, CA 92592.
