went on to attend College of Saint Elizabeth in
Convent Station, New Jersey. Pat graduated St.
E’s in 1961 with a Bachelor of Arts in history
and a minor in English and secondary education.
Pat married Don Freeman in 1961. Prior to
having their three children, Pat taught the 3rd
grade. The young family moved to California
in 1970 where Pat made cherished lifelong
friends and was an active part of the San Mateo
community for the next 30 years. She was a longstanding and enthusiastic volunteer
with many organizations. Pat eventually began a career with Wells Fargo Bank where
she flourished and enjoyed the close friendships of many co-workers.
In 2000, Pat pursued her dream and moved over the hill to Ocean Colony, Half Moon
Bay. There she cultivated many friendships and was active in the Coast Women’s Club
and its many offshoots during her 15 years on Burning Tree Road. Pat loved her bridge
and mahjong groups; she liked the games, but she especially delighted in socializing
with her many treasured friends.
Pat loved to travel and enjoyed many trips over the years with her beloved sisters Janet
and Nancy, her children and her close friends. She was a lover of animals, especially
dogs, and took pleasure in frequent walks on the beach with Ursa and then Hogan. The
49ers were Pat’s team and, despite their recent off-years, she would enthusiastically
cheer and appreciate a good play. When there were no sports on, we would often watch
the double header of Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy; Dave, mom and Caroline loudly
competing against the contestants, always with mom’s favorite mint chocolate chip ice

Pat will be remembered for her infectious laugh, warm and welcoming smile and
boundless energy. Those lucky enough to have known Pat felt her vibrant spirit which
lit up a room! She was gracious and generous always, had a positive outlook despite
her disease, a sharp sense of humor and a zest for life that never dimmed until she was
ready to go home.
Pat is survived by her loving family including daughter Caroline (Dave) and
granddaughters Gaby and Sarah of Boise, ID, son Michael of Fairfax, CA, daughter
Elizabeth (Don) and granddaughter Samantha of Monument, CO, sister Nancy (Do)
Tubbs of Mantoloking, MJ and Vero Beach, FL and many adoring nieces and nephews.
Pat was preceded in death by her sister Janet Regan and her former husband Don. A
celebration of her life is being planned for March 2019 in Half Moon Bay.
