Patricia Antonia Derbeck O’Donovan Friedson, age 72, was born July 27, 1949, in California, and passed away peacefully at Shuksan Healthcare in Bellingham, Washington, on Thursday, July 29, 2021.

The ceremony will include time for friends and loved ones to share a story, a remembrance, or a prayer.   As Patricia once said....

"Life, in all its wonderfulness, goes on."
