Pat was born February 11, 1940 in Portland, OR to Edna and Walter Reasoner. She was one of 12 children and grew up in the Meadow Brook area. She attended Meadow Brook School House and Graduated from Molalla High school in 1957. She attended Nursing School for a year and a half and worked at the Jewish Nursing home in Portland, OR until her marriage to Archie on May 21, 1960. The First child was born in July of 1961 and continued a child a year for the next 3 years. Then five years later the last son was born. Pat lived on their farm on Eby Rd. until her passing.
Pat spent every summer as the kids were growing in the fields picking beans, strawberries, marion berries and evergreen berries. The babies were piled into the buggy and down the road they went to pick. When the kids got too big for the buggy she pulled them in a blue wagon. One child was always napping in the wagon while Pat was busy picking.
Life on the farm was not easy for her, but later in life she was able to travel and became a world traveler. Her and her sister Margaret made many trips to Europe, Cruises, Moffit Brother Bus Tours. Any chance to go to Reno, Wyndover, or Chinook Winds she was ready to go.
A Celebration of Life and dinner is planned for June 10, 2023 at 5 pm at the Molalla SDA Seventh day Adventist church Fellowship Hall, 835 N. Molalla Ave, Molalla OR.
