Patty attended Skyline High School. She married Alan L. Palfreyman on August 5th 1969, sealed for time and all eternity in the Salt Lake Temple. They were blissfully married for 51 years.
Patty was a selfless individual that could light up any room with her smile and infectious laughter. She loved to dance through life and passed that along to her children. Along with her loving husband her pride and joy in life were her 8 daughters, 1 son, their spouses and her 21 grandkids with 2 more on the way. She was so excited to meet them that she went to heaven just to be the first in line to hold them.
She worked for many years at Cottonwood High School helping special education students, where she loved the kids as much as they loved her.
It didn't matter if you were meeting for the first time or an old friend you were always greeted with a huge hug. Holidays were her favorite time even the ones she self-created so that she could be with her family, allowing her to spread her magic to all, passing on cherished traditions that will live on for generations.

Palfreyman, Children: Stacie (Guy) Allen, Tracie (Mark) Osborne, Jamie, Tammie (Shawn) Andreason, Katie (Travis) Mabey, Beckie, Justin (Katie) Palfreyman, Allie (Randy) Pettit, Shellie (Matt) Angus, 21 Grandchildren (plus 2), Sisters Renae (Budd) Ferre and Jackie Woodruff.
