Obituary For Patricia Lee Works

Patricia-Lee Works, age 97, died on St. Patrick’s Day at her home in Jackson, surrounded by family. Pat was born in Santa Barbara in 1924 (a fourth generation Californian). There she married Bob Works and raised three daughters. In 1962, the family moved to Jackson when Bob was hired to teach at Jackson Elementary School. She was the parish secretary at St. Patrick Catholic Church for 30 years. She also worked at Woodbury’s, Jackson Cleaners and Gordon Hill Nursery.

She was a talented seamstress and knitter – many Jackson children were greeted at birth with beautiful knit Christmas stockings. She loved her home and garden on Stasal. For years, she and Bob attended daily Mass at St. Patrick and they loved Friday lunch at Teresa’s. They were well-known for walking, hand-in-hand, all over town.

She is survived by her daughters Terri Works (Andy Rodriguez) of Jackson, Bambi Torres (John Torres) of Carson City and Patricia Moraes (Sidney Moraes) of Brazil; five grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.

Her funeral was held Wednesday at St. Patrick and she was laid to rest next to her beloved Bob. She was a founding member of Friends of the Amador County Library so any memorial donations should be made to FACL, PO Box 701 Jackson, California 95642.

    Dear Terri and Family: I am so saddened to hear of the death of your mom. She was one of the most sweetest and kindest ladies I know. She always had a smile on her face and always gave me a hug and made me feel like she was so happy to see me. I will miss seeing "my little pixie". She is finally reunited with the love of her life. Love and hugs to you and your family. Sue Miguel
