Sadden to read about Pat's passing.  Just was reintroduced to her at a luncheon in 2012.  Didn't really know her very well in high school but enjoyed talking with her at this luncheon.  Prayers and comfort going out right now for her family.  Much to young.

I am so sorry to hear about the passing of Pat.  I too did not know her that well, but it sadddens me again when one of my classmates is gone.  Everyday is a gift.  Time is passing too quickly.  I did get a chance to talk with Pat at our 50th class reunion, but can't remember if she was at our last dinner at Deer Park Villa.  I believe she was.  My prayers go out to her family and special friends.

Every time I see that one of us has passed I stop for a moment and think about how short this trip really is and how important each day should be viewed. May Pat rest in peace ...she was way too young to go.

I am deeply sorry to hear about the passing of Pat Nolan Mortiz. I am saddened by any loss to our '61 graduating class. It seems she had a life well lived with a devoted family. That is all anyone can ask for oin this journey. May she rest in peace.  Joan Moran

As most of our classmates seem to believe, we are much too young to be moving on to the next adventure in our lives.  Our sincere condolences to the Moritz family on their loss.  May Pat rest in peace.

I too am so sad to lose Pat. When I was living in San Francisco going to nursing school  Pat and Colleen and our dates would go out.  My sister Eileen was also a college friend of Pat's and I got to see her and Don at their home.  It was great to see her several years ago when I hosted a luncheon for the MC girls at my home. I was fortunate to speak with her a month or so ago even though she had lost much of her voice to radation. She was a devoted mother and wife with a wonderful husband. My prayers to Don and the family. May she rest in peace. Sheila
