Patricia was born in Jerome, Idaho on August 12, 1939, to parents Charles and Florence Elbrader, the youngest of four children. Her family had limited means but abundant love. In her early years they lived in various locations in Idaho and California. For a time her father managed the riding stables in Squaw Valley where she may have developed her lifelong love of horses. The family landed in Sacramento in 1952, where Pat attended McClatchy High School. In her sophomore year the family moved to Penryn and she attended Placer High. It was there that she met the love of her life, Marvin. The two were married in June 1957, just a month after she graduated Placer. Together they raised four children. In 1961, Pat went to work for the Placer County Sheriffs Department as a dispatcher. Over the years she held a variety of positions in the Sheriffs Department and District Attorney’s Office. Her favorite assignment was Coordinator of the Search and Rescue unit which was commanded by her husband Marvin and where her entire family served as volunteers. For 63 years she was an active member of St. Joseph’s Catholic Church. Her favorite things in life were horses, green grass and the outdoors. She was a three-time finisher of the Tevis 100 Mile Ride. Nothing delighted her more than spending time with her family. She strived to make every holiday and birthday special. Her Christmas stockings were legendary. Her boundless energy and caring for others is well known. She was never too busy or tired to help a family member or friend in need. She inspired all who were fortunate enough to know her and she made us all better people. Patricia is survived by husband Marvin, Sons Dennis (Shannon) and Daniel (Susan), Daughter Diane (Keith Arellano), Son in Law Steven Mancebo, Grandchildren Leslie, Nick, Jamie, Joey, Christopher, Trevor, Tyler, Justin, Taylor and Great Grandchildren Emma, Camille, Zephram, Sawyer and Claire. She was preceded in death by her parents Charles and Florence Elbrader, daughter Denise, grandson Blake, brother Jesse Elbrader and sisters Theresa Claiborne and Carol Zappala. We will never forget your unconditional love and how you touched on our lives. Your spirit will remain and guide us forever. Due to Covid-19, a private ceremony will be held for family only.

Sincere condolences from the family of Rick Meredith (deceased), Placer Co. Sheriff's Deputy.
When you come into the family of the Sheriff's Department, there are always "mother hens" to help you along the way. Pat was one of them. She was always kind, and supportive - a bright light to help you find your way.
We are so sorry for your loss.

“Aunt Pat” was such a special person to us; we were blessed to have been considered a part of her large and loving family. When we think of Pat we think of her fearlessness, her steadfastness, and her strength to face whatever challenges life brought with grace and dignity. We remember too her kind heart, her generosity, her wonderful sense of humor and her constant concern for others. Pat always showed us much love and support and we treasured her for it.
Our deepest condolences to all of Pat’s family; our hearts our broken by her passing. May her bright smile shine forever.
