Patricia Jane Duhig Notes:  The photo at the right shows Patty at about age 8.  She graduated from Napa High School in 1965.  Patty's brief marriage in 1968 was quickly annulled.

Patty's second marriage in 1977 lasted for over 23 years.  In 1979 she did the art work for her mother's cookbook Vi's Vittles. The photo below shows Patty at Katharine Hancock's funeral in Westminster, California, on 14 Mar 1987.

After the death on 12 Sep 1997 of Toni Walker, Garth's first wife, Patty travelled to Southern California from Texas to help with the details and the packing and moving of Toni's stuff.  Patty later said she wished so much it had been her, not Toni who died that day.

Patty returned to Napa following the death of her husband Garth in September 2000.  She passed on at age 57 on 8 Apr 2004 due to colon cancer — the same cancer that earlier had killed her husband.
