Patricia Ann Cothern

Patricia Ann Cothern
Jan. 2, 1936 – Jan. 25, 2013
A Loving Mother, A Compassionate Companion, A Tolerant Friend

Patricia (Trish) Cothern was born in Payette, Idaho, the daughter of Edward Earl Parsons and Bessie (Bess) May Parsons (nee Musgrove). She is survived by her husband of 56 years, James Cothern, her three children, Teresa Leigh Williams of Denver, Colo., James Steven (Steve) Cothern of Goleta, Calif., her daughter Susan Denise Golubics of Walnut Creek, Calif., her five grandsons, her sister Dorothy Noyes, of Littleton, Colo. and her brother Ed Parsons of Payette, Idaho.

Pat grew up in Payette and attended the University of Idaho and Michigan State University where she earned a degree in physical education and music. She taught physical education, music, and dance in the Bozeman, Mont. public school system for several years. After moving to Davis she worked for years in the health care field as an employee of first Dr. Robert Silva and then of Stewart (Bud) Cassell, both of Davis.

She was an avid skier, a devoted musician who loved Chopin, a skilled seamstress and quilter and an avid gardener. After retirement she turned her attentions and energies to those activities and began volunteering at Kaiser in South Sacramento and also rocking babies at Sutter Medical in Sacramento.

She was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma in August 2006, but it initially did not diminish her energies. She was forced to stop skiing, but concentrated her attention to the other activities and to a local chapter of PEO, of which she was a member for 54 years. As her physical energies diminished, she turned to quilting and gardening. She completed seven quilts in 2012 and an unfinished quilt remains in her quilting room, which she was working on three weeks before her death.

Services will be conducted at the Davis Community Church on Thursday, Feb. 7, 2013 at 10 a.m.

Memorial donations to the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation are encouraged in lieu of flowers.
