LAKE COUNTY, Calif. — Patricia Ann Del Valle was a wonderful grandmother, mother, daughter, sister, aunt and friend.

God unexpectedly took her into his kingdom on Feb. 27, 2022, after a hard-fought battle with complications due to the COVID-19 virus.

Patricia was born to Elizabeth Holmes and Joseph Del Valle on Oct 1,1952, in Colusa County.

She had seven siblings: Joseph, Mary, Frank, Fred, Delores, Carmen and Leonard.

She was proud of her Pomo Indian heritage, and she was a tribal member with the Big Valley Band of Pomo Indians.

She accomplished many things in her life, some of which included being a class officer and high school cheerleader at Clear Lake High, dental assistant for Tribal Health and a hairdresser when she resided in Hayward. California.

She has two children, Jason Micah Whitcher (deceased) and Brittany Marie Bright Star Del Valle, along with three grandchildren, Kyrin, Asher and Michael, whom she had unconditional love for even though one has lived far away from her.

Patty was full of life and laughter, with the biggest heart. She was always bringing smiles to familiar faces, as she is known by many people and had quite a few friends.

Patricia loved spending time putting together puzzles and visiting with her grandson Kyrin, spoiling him whenever she got the chance. She always had a smile on her face as she’d watch him get excited by her presents and her company.

She was blessed with her third grandson in January, a week before she was admitted into the hospital. She was able to get the chance to meet Asher (2 months old) before her sudden passing, but did not get time to hold him, due to her not feeling well.

Patty was a very strong woman who fought hard and believed she could take on the world. She loved life and her grandsons very much.

As she joins her family in heaven, she leaves behind her daughter, grandsons, a sister, a brother, many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

Patricia’s memorial service will be held at the Big Valley Gymnasium, 1002 Osprey Court in Lakeport, on Saturday, March 26, from 1 to 4 p.m.
