Patsy Lee (Peterson) Nash 82, was carried to heaven in the healing arms of our savior on July 20, 2020 with family by her side. Patsy Lee Peterson was born in Toppenish, Washington to parents Edwin and Lois (Smith) Peterson. She started school in Toppenish attending Barrett school then Wy’East school and The Dalles High School. She was one of the last to graduate from Barrett School.
David and Patsy were married in New Meadows, Idaho and were married for 62 years. They were married in a feed store; they had to fetch the justice of peace. He was rototilling in his garden. Together they had 4 children and when they went off to school Patsy went back to work as a grocery clerk. She worked at Rosauers until she retired and there she made many lifelong friends.
She was always up for anything and loved camping, fishing, horse riding, crafting and motorcycles. She always told the story of the time she was riding David’s motorcycle through town and it was causing the store windows to rattle, she got pulled over for it. She didn’t know that David had taken the pipes off.
She loved spur of the moment trips, out of the blue one time she said, let’s go to Canada… that is a trip we will never forget. She loved the ocean and trips to the casino and was always a winner! She would tell us how she came from a family that didn’t really hug or tell her how she was loved so she always made sure to tell you how much she loved you. Patsy loved her family she would hug you and hold you tight to make sure you knew how much you were loved. Anyone who knew Patsy will remember her spunk and passion for life. She stubbornly fought to overcome many health challenges. Reagan (great grandchild) asked grandma what made her so strong, she answered, the love of my family and friends.
Patsy would babysit her two great granddaughters and it was such a big deal for her. She loved to watch them grow. She loved her cats and dogs. One day she told us she would teach her kitty to walk on a leash outside and well she got it done!! From daughter Joni: I got to witness the meaning of true love through my mom and dad. They were always together and I could see the love in their eyes when they saw each other, kissed and of course, an I love you. This has been hard on my dad as they had never been apart for more than a couple weeks.
Patsy is survived by her husband David Nash; daughter Joni (Stephen) Capps; grandchildren Danny Gilkerson (Lindsay Borg); great granddaughters Reagen, Remi Gilkerson; Grandson Jacob Dean (Kelly Porter); Grandson James “Jimmy” (Mranda) Gilkerson; great granddaughter Addyson Gilkerson; granddaughter Molly Jo Lively (Anthony Cutshall) great grandson Parker Wesley Cutshall; brothers Bobby, Jerry, Larry(Sandra) Peterson; brother in laws Eldon Nash (Mary Ann Peterson), Boyd Nash; sister in law Diane Nash and Charlotte Nash (Howard Cookston) and many nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her parents, infant son Marcus Nash, son Robert Daniel Nash; daughter Amy Jo Lively; brother Edwin (david) Peterson; sister Elsie Peterson (Ed Gefre); father in law Daniel Nash; mother in law Ethel Nash.
Patsy Nash was a wife, daughter, sister, mother, grandmother, great grandmother Aunt! The mold was broken after God made Patsy Lee and she will be missed by all.

Sympathy and comfort of the Gospel to all of Patsy's loved ones. We were privileged to know this dear woman through Hood River Valley Christian Church where we are members. Patsy's winning smile which shone in her eyes as well as her mouth will surely be missed. Our loss is surely heave's gain as she resides with the company of those who have gone to be with our Lord before us. Blessings to all, Rev Donnamae & Glenn Grannemann, The Dalles

I will always remember fondly sharing a bedroom/bunk on top and Patsy on the bottom at one of our Women's Ministries camp outs. We spent the night laughing at some of the things we both had been responsible for in our childhoods. I loved our time together and I also know she is now not suffering. God is richer because her spirit has entered HIS kingdom. We are richer because HE shared her with us.
