Pat was born in Norwood, MA to Glen and Gladys Hoglund on September 13, 1946. As the daughter of an Air Force Officer, she moved frequently throughout the United States and abroad as a child. She graduated from H.H. Arnold High School in Wiesbaden, Germany in 1964 and went on to earn a Bachelor’s degree from Colorado State University. She moved to Corvallis, OR in 1975, where she took great pride working as a secretary both at Oregon State University (7 years) and Crescent Valley High School (10 years). She was admired by her colleagues for her dedication to her work and for her kindness and compassion to those around her. She loved spending time with friends and family. She had a beautiful smile and those who knew her described her as kind, thoughtful and caring. She lived her life with grace and dignity and was admired for her strength. Some of her favorite hobbies included playing cards and computer games. She enjoyed reading and was continually expanding her knowledge of anything and everything, but especially loved mystery novels. After living in Corvallis for over 40 years, she moved to Washington to be closer to family. She is survived by her daughters Cheri Collins (Trevor) of Enterprise, OR and Christy Davis (Jon) of Vancouver, WA, as well as grandchildren Jordan Collins, Grace Collins and Tyler Davis. She was preceded in death by her parents, Lt. Col. Glen and Gladys Hoglund. In 1999, Pat was the recipient of a golden retriever named Ryan, from Canine Companions for Independence.
