Pat Ferguson

Pat Ferguson, 69, of Leavenworth, passed away on Saturday, Feb. 17, 2018 after a two year battle with breast and lymph node cancer. Pat died at home surrounded by family.
Patricia Jean Somerville Ferguson was born on Nov. 16, 1948 in San Francisco, California. She grew up in Portland, Oregon and graduated from Sunset High School in 1967.
For the past 48 years, Pat has been a resident of Leavenworth. Throughout these years she has proven herself to be a very independent and hard working woman. She spent time working for the Forest Service, Mack’s Lure, Mountain Springs Resort and for the past 10 years she has operated her own housekeeping business. She recently confirmed that the time she spent on the Trail Crew for the Forest Service were some of the most memorable and rewarding work of her life.
Pat enjoyed living her life filled with laughter and the companionship of the friends and family around her. She was drawn to the vast beauty of the Cascade Range and logged countless miles hiking amongst them. Her travels took her as far as the Hawaiian Island of Molokai, three times, where she would sunbathe to her hearts content. She enjoyed the solitude of a good book, the many cats, dogs, turtles that were ever present in her home and maintaining her annual garden. But mostly... she loved the ebb and flow of raising her children and grandchildren. She was a dedicated mother and grandmother and was always there to support her children when needed.
Pat is survived by her children; Ann Hopperstad, Nancy (Terry) Schultz, Holly Danna, Kellie Ferguson, Corey Ferguson, Keith Ferguson, Casey Ferguson, Cady Ferguson, and eight grandchildren; Joe, Travis, Jake, Dylan, Angelina, Dallas, Ozzy, Alex.
She was preceded in death by her son Buck Carlson, son-in-law Rod Hopperstad, and parents Bill & Jean Somerville.
The family would like to thank the friends and neighbors who reached out to Pat or stopped by during these final months and weeks. Thank you to Mountain Springs Lodge for their generosity of providing a hearty meal which brought the whole family together one last time before return to their respective homes and cities. And a special thank you to Hospice RN Jana who provided wonderful heartfelt care to Pat and for her constant guidance and support to the family.
At Pat’s request, no service was held.
