May 1, 1945 — April 3, 2011

Patty Atkinson passed away April 3, 2011. She was a beloved mother, sister, grandmother and friend. Patty was born May 1, 1945, to Ernie and Barabar Sander. She grew up in Napa, attending Shearer Elementary School, Ridgeview Junior High and graduating from Napa High School. In 1963 she married Ray Atkinson. Together they raised four daughters.

Patty’s greatest joy in life was her family and friends. She always had an open door policy to kids and friends in need. She invited many less fortunate friends of her daughters to live with them until they were ready to move forward on their own.

Patty strongly supported and worked tirelessly in all her daughters’ sporting events, school functions, social events and hobbies.

Patty is survived by her daughters, Mary (Tim) Harrison of Davis; Amy (Mike) Vieira of Sparks, Nev.; Carrie (Steve) Schweizer of Napa; and Marty (Casey) Simpson of Lake Forest. Patty was also the proud grandmother of eight grandchildren: Tanner, Taylor and Mackenzie Harrison; Macie, Megan and Cassidy Schweizer; and Sarah and Shayne Simpson; two sisters: Kris (Warren) Mercer of Lincoln and Sue (Bob) Gargani of El Dorado Hills; brother Dick (Wendy) Sander of San Francisco; as well as many nieces, nephews and cousins. She was preceded in death by her parents, Ernie and Barbara Sander, and her son, Samuel Sander Atkinson.

Her family and entire community have lost a very special person. She will be deeply missed.

Everyone is warmly invited to a celebration of her life at 1 p.m. Thursday, April 14, at the Tulocay Chapel in Napa. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation in her memory to the charity of your choice. Memories and words of sympathy may be sent to the family online at http://www.tulocaycemetery.org.
