Patricia Walior Cedeño April 29, 1943 - April 26, 2012

Patricia peacefully ended her battle against cancer Thursday morning in her home surrounded by her loving family. Born in Aberdeen, SD, she traveled the world with her family in her youth as one of 4 children to US Air Force Col. John T. Walior and his wife, Margaret Jane Carberry. Patricia attended the University of Dayton where she met the love of her life, US Army Col. Francisco (Frank) J. Cedeño. Their marriage allowed them to continue a love of traveling the world, where along the way they were blessed with 4 children of their own. She was a devoted Catholic, wife and mother who was generous with her life to others, and caring and nurturing to her family. Upon her retirement from the Army and Air Force Exchange Service, she and Frank moved from the Dallas area to Austin to be closer to family members who had settled in the central Texas area. She will be sorely missed, while living on in spirit.

Patricia is survived by her husband Frank, her sister Barbara, brother William, son Michael and his wife Jean, daughter Kathryn and her husband Darren, daughter Reneé and her husband George, and daughter Pamela and her husband Jason, and the blessing of 11 beautiful grandchildren.

The family offers our deepest appreciation to Drs. Lakshmi Bala and Karen Cohen of Texas Oncology and their respective staff, Hospice Austin, and for the spiritual support provided by Rev. Isidore Ndagizimana and Rev. Vincent Nguyen, CSsR of St. Albert the Great Catholic Church.

A Rosary Service will be held at half past noon on Saturday, the 28th of April, 2012 at St. Albert the Great Catholic Church. Immediately following, a Memorial Mass will be celebrated at 1 o’clock in the afternoon.

In lieu of flowers and customary remembrances, donations will be accepted to, in memory of Patricia Cedeño. Condolences may be made at

Our lives were made brighter and happier with Pat & Frank in our lives. Pat always had that smile that made it seem like the smile was just for you. We love you and our lives are a little less happy with the loss of such a loving person, Jesse & Rosemary Gonzales

Mr. Cedeno
My condolences on the passing of your beloved wife. Your family was always a great influence on ours at Holy Spirit and I instantly remembered events of our interactions when mom told me of your wife's passing. You and your family will remain in my family's prayers.
