Read more about the life story of Patricia and share your memory.
Patricia passed away quietly on the morning of July 18th, 2023 after a long illness. She left a beautiful legacy of a loving husband Gerald Baggett, Sr. (Jerry) and her grown children, Pamela Parkhill, Cynthia Alder and Gerald Baggett Jr. (Jay). She also expressed great pride in her Grand Children, Terry and Jenny Lutz, son and daughter of Pam and Charlie Parkhill. Shawn and Sara Stevenson, daughter of Cindy and Daril Alder, Samantha and Brett Baggett, Daughter and son of Jay and Lisa Baggett. Her great-grand-children, Molly, Emily and Tommy Lutz, children of Terry and Courtney Lutz and children of Jenny and Rob Ebert: Dakota, Kent and Colton. Colton and his wife Harlee have a daughter Lilah, Patricia’s great-great-grand daughter.
Pat was the daughter of the late William and Sara Goodrich of Carrollton, Georgia. She and Jerry made California their home for more than sixty years, raising their family and living what she often called a fairy tale life style in Southern California. She also leaves behind many wonderful friends surrounding their home in the Mandalay Bay boating community of Channel Islands Harbor, California where they lived for thirty-three years before making a late-in-life move to Tucson, Arizona to be near their daughter, Cindy and her family late last year.
Patricia met her husband Jerry while they were students at the University of Alabama. She was a Delta Zeta beauty and Jerry, a rough around the edges veteran returning to academia after the Korean War. They met at one of Jerry’s Phi-Kappa-Sigma fraternity social mixers and she eventually agreed to a first date arranged through a family friend. They agreed to be married the last semester of Jerry’s senior year and she visited his parents for the first time. Jerry’s mother said: “Pat. If you marry Jerry, you will always have fun but you’ll never have much money. Are you prepared for that?”
They were married in a small wedding at her parents’ home in Georgia and the rest is a magical journey intoin to history.
