Patricia “Pat” Ann Neu, age 76, of Sutter Creek, CA, passed away Thursday, June 26, 2014 at Vibra Hospital, in Folsom. Patricia was born in Ione, WA on June 21, 1938, a daughter of the late Dorothy Belle (Wall) and Francis William Jay. Her family moved to Jackson when she was 3 years old. Pat graduated from Jackson High School in 1956 and immediately joined the U.S. Navy anxious to leave Jackson and experience life. Shortly after joining the Navy she met Lester (Gene) Neu and they were married in October of 1956. When the couple were honorably discharged from the Navy they would move back to Jackson and begin their family. Their daughters would recall wonderful family camping trips, and vacationing on the west coast, Washington and Oregon. In 1970 Gene and Pat would divorce but remain friends. Pat would continue to make Jackson her home and raise her daughters, who would also graduate from Jackson High School.

Patricia worked as an accountant for 35 years first in the Jackson area and then Stockton, retiring at the age of 75 from Ron Rishwain, CPA. In her later years she was baptized at St. Lukes Catholic Church in Stockton. Pat truly enjoyed spending time with her children, her grandchildren and their families. She also enjoyed her visits with her grand puppies.

Pat’s health began failing several months ago, but she was blessed to have lived long enough to see photos of her first great grandchild. Cecilia Wright was born 9 days prior to Pat’s passing. Just days later on June 21st Pat’s family was able to celebrate her 76th birthday with her.

Pat is survived by her daughters, Kathleen Neu, of Sacramento, CA; Dorothy, and her husband, Tom Britto, of Myrtle Creek, OR; niece that affectionately called Pat Auntie , Brenda Crawford and her husband, K.C. of Stockton; sister, Geri Saunders, of Jackson, CA; grandchildren, Jessica Neu, Elizabeth Britto, Alex Britto, great granddaughter, Cecilia and niece, Amy Swart.
