Patricia (Pat) Patchin


Patricia (Pat) Patchin of Boise, passed away peacefully at home on January 23, 2019 following an extended illness. She was born in Casper, Wyoming, she and her twin sister Pauline were the youngest of seven kids born to Alma and Ruth Layland. She grew up on ranches in western Wyoming, helping her folks do all that was necessary to make a ranch succeed, from raking hay to cooking for the hired hands. She attended Cokeville High School and graduated in 1946. Following graduation she worked on the ranch, and also joined her older sister Helen in Salt Lake City where she worked for the telephone company. Later, through her older brother, she met and married Don Patchin in 1951 and together they raised three sons, Rocky, Paul and Jim and a niece Josephine in Idaho, California and Oregon.

Pat was a wonderful mother and homemaker who was devoted to her family, raising her children and niece with love and discipline, determined to mold them into productive and caring adults. She was protective of her kids but also demanded accountability when they were in the wrong. Pat volunteered for various organizations, serving as president of the local chapter of the American Legion Women’s Auxiliary and as a board member of the Children’s Home Society. Most importantly, she was a loving wife, mother and grandmother who poured her life and love into each one of her family.

She is survived by her sons, Rocky (Karen) Patchin of Lacey, WA; Paul (Linda) Patchin of Boise, Jim (Chelese) Patchin of Shelley, ID; Josephine Puff of Henderson, NV, twelve grandchildren and four great-granddaughters.
