Patricia (Pat) Baird was born November 22,1930 in Colfax Washington to Hugh and Eva Wheeler. The family moved to Tacoma Washington where they lived for most of her childhood and Graduated High School there. Pat then continued on with her higher Education at Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma to pursue her Nursing degree and Graduated as a Registered Nurse. Pat spent the majority of her nursing career as a surgery nurse and surgery supervisor at St. Anthony’s Hospital in Pendleton, Oregon and retired in 1992 with 40 years of service. Pat married Marvin M. Baird On April 25th,1953. These love birds met at a roller skating rink in Tacoma Washington while he was in the Navy and she was in nursing school. Marvin passed away in January of 1976, and Pat stayed in the family home where she passed away after more than 60 years in the Pendleton Community. Pat enjoyed being active in Community and philanthropic organizations and her Church. She was a past president of Pioneer Ladies, Beta Sigma Phi 1960-2016, Red Hat Ladies Society, TOPS treasurer for 9 years, Alumni of Tacoma Nursing Association, and Christian Woman’s Fellowship. She also enjoyed crocheting and sewing as well as watching her Grandkids play sports and traveling. Pat is survived by her 4 children, Cathy Case (Russ) Hermiston OR, Patti Sager (Randy) Lake Stevens WA, David Baird (Shirley) Pendleton OR, Marvin (Cammie) Spokane WA. She treasured her family especially her thirteen Grandchildren, twenty nine Great Grandchildren and six Great-great Grandchildren as well as nieces and nephews. Her greatest award is for being the most loving Mother and Grandmother. She always had a kind word and beautiful smile to share with anyone who came in contact with her. Pat is preceded in death by her parents, her husband, and her three brothers Richard, Robert and Mike Wheeler. Graveside service of her cremated remains will be announced in the spring. Even at the end she was thinking about everyone getting too cold to be outside for a winter burial. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to First Christian Church Memorial Fund, Pendleton Oregon in care of Burns Mortuary of Pendleton in Pat’s honor.
