PATRICIA M BLATT FEB 19, 1929–JUNE 6, 2024

Patricia M Blatt passed away peacefully June 6th 2024, at her assisted living home, The Enclave, in Gilbert AZ. Born to parents Joseph L Pattisson and Norma Pattisson (Canepa), in San Francisco CA, Patt, (with 2 Ts) as she preferred to be known, attended school and grew up in San Francisco along with her brother Joseph L Pattisson Jr. Patt was an avid skier, and met her husband, Herb Blatt through their membership in the Peninsula Ski Club of San Mateo. They made their home in San Mateo, Belmont, then in 1969, Woodside, where they resided for 30 years. In Woodside they found a wonderful community, where they made many close, longtime friends, with Shasta house boating trips a summer staple. Patt was involved with Woodside/Portola Valley Newcomers, Children’s Home Society, the Woodside Village Church Guild Hall, and participated in many of the stage productions at Woodside Elementary School’s George Sellman Auditorium over the years. Patt and Herb also enjoyed tennis, playing in many Woodside SWAT tournaments. After going back to work in bookkeeping, Patt then decided on travel, becoming an agent and working with Travel Express in the Pioneer Building for many years. As an agent, Patt and Herb were able to travel the world, something her and her father Joseph L Pattisson Sr. both dreamt of many years before, when she was a young girl. After husband Herb retired from the ocean shipping business in San Francisco, they both decided a change of scenery was due. In the late 90’s, to be closer to family in Indio CA, they built a lovely home at Bermuda Dunes Country Club, near Palm Desert CA. There they pursued their new passion, golf. After Herb’s passing in 2006, Patt moved to Palm Valley Country Club, buying and remodeling 2 homes there. Patt enjoyed an active social life there, having met many new friends, through both golf and the doggie park nearby, where Patt took her new companion, a Lhasa Apso named Daphne. In more recent years, Patt transitioned to assist living, first in Long Beach CA, then Gilbert AZ, to be closer to her family. Patt is survived by son Chris, daughter-in-law Jan (Queen Creek AZ), grandchildren Christina Cocchi (Mesa AZ) and Randy Blatt (Los Alamitos CA), her brother Joe Pattisson and his wife Jackie, (Parker Colorado). She is preceded in death by husband Herb in December 2006, and son Gerritt, in January 2024. Patt will be laid to rest in The Canepa Family Vault at The Italian Cemetery in Colma CA. Further arrangements are pending.
