Patricia Maria Sears, 84, passed away January 18, 2021. Patty was born in Price, UT to Michael and Eleanor Silvagni. She grew up in Las Vegas where her grandfather, P.O. Silvagni, built the Apache Hotel. She attended Las Vegas High School, and graduated from Marymount High School in Los Angeles, CA. Patty met the love of her life, Bill, and they were married for 64 years. She was a loving and devoted wife, incredible mother, and best friend. Her presence, energy and enthusiasm were a force in the lives of her family and friends. She enjoyed cooking, loved to read and play bridge, but her passion was the beach. Patty is survived by her sister Gina (Perry), four children, Robert (Juliana), Susan Kramer, Thomas (Sharon), and Kimberly Sears-Gobble (Donald), her four grandchildren Jamie Tyson (Daniel), Michael Sears (Aubrey), Sydney McFarlin (Jake), and Catherine Kuthe (Matthew), and six great grandchildren. Memorial services will be held at Southern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery, and her life will be celebrated at a later date. Donations may be made to Absolute Palliative Hospice Care in lieu of flowers. Services will be private.
