Patricia (Patty) Ann Stanton passed away peacefully on September 18, 2017 in Grass Valley, CA. She was 83.

She was born August 3, 1934 in Porterville, CA; she was the daughter of Charles Cullen and Rhea Stanton of Applegate, CA.

As she raised her family, Patty worked night shift at the Placer County Hospital as a nurses aide. She also enjoyed working independently as a private caregiver.
