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.
Patricia was a wildly gifted story-teller, writer, harpist, artist and caregiver. She will be cherished for the sweetness of her soul, which was ever attuned to wonder, beauty, truth, humor and kindness. Even in adversity, she magnified love’s light in this dark world.
She leaves behind her cousin Yvonne Henriksson and many devoted friends, who are filled with gratitude for her life.
A graveside service will be held at Greenacres Memorial Park, Wednesday, August 25, at 10 a.m. In lieu of flowers, contributions for her site and memorial stone may be made to https://gofund.me/36b3a4cc.
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."
