Patricia "Pat" Heroff-Fielding, 83, of Granite, Oregon, died on March 12, 2018 at St. Alphonsus Hospital in Baker City. A Celebration of Pat's Life "Wake" will be held at a later date.
Patricia Carol Greene was born on January 27, 1936 in Salt Lake City, Utah. She was raised and educated there, graduating from South High School. Pat married Donald Heroff and they had three children. They later divorced, but always remained good friends until his passing in 2008.
Pat and Mitch met while working at the University of Utah Medical Center in Salt Lake City, Utah. The Medical Center had 8 high rises and 3,000 employees. They were married on September 3, 1983. In 1995 they got away from the city life, and moved to Granite. Mitch built the Granite Lodge from 1995 to 1998 and soon after they were open for business.
Daughter Jai Cee shared " You have my utmost respect and I couldn't have been more blessed in this lifetime journey with you by my side to teach, mentor, guide me. To teach respect for all others, to share what you can when you can, to accept others for who they are, but not to cast pearls to those who trample them under foot. You taught and led by example. You stood up for/and with those who had trouble standing by themselves. Always an open door policy - if you were hungry, eat; if you needed a place to sleep, that there was room - or just someone to listen and share time . You could light the room with charm and bring down to the floor those who thought they were better than others in the blink of an eye. I'll Cherish our menu adventures as well as our moments of silence and solitude."
She was preceded in death by her daughter Dawn Rae in 1967.
Pat is survived by her husband Mitch; daughter Jai Cee Heroff of Granite, Oregon; son Michael Heroff; sister in law Andy Mash of Sumpter.
