Obituary for Patricia Lee (O’Grady) Artz

Patricia Lee (O’Grady) Artz, 90, of Bremerton, Washington, passed away on Saturday, March 27, 2021, from natural causes.

Pat was born in Great Falls, Montana on March 18, 1931, to Elizabeth (Pilgeram) and Thomas O’Grady. She graduated from the University of Montana with her teaching degree in 1949 and received her master’s degree in 1953 from the University of Oregon. Pat taught business for many years in Montana, Ohio, Oregon, and Virginia.

It was at the University of Montana that Pat met the love of her life, Robert Artz, and they were married in Great Falls, Montana in 1955. Pat and Bob spent many happy years living in Springfield, Oregon, Annandale, Virginia, and Simi Valley, California.

Unfortunately, their life together was tragically cut short when Bob was killed in a plane crash in 1979. After Bob’s untimely death, Pat remained in Simi Valley for 36 years until she moved to Bremerton, Washington, to be closer to family.

Pat was preceded in death by her parents; husband; and sister, Margaret "Peggy" Bearbower. She is survived by many nieces and nephews who will miss her dearly.

The family would like to thank The Ridge for all the support and loving care they have provided for the last 5 years.
