Patricia "Trish" Ann (Welser) Sanders passed away Thursday, Jan. 3, 2013, after a brave battle with cancer and liver disease.
She was born in Castalia on March 22, 1938, to Constance and Hazel (Wobser) Welser.
Patricia worked as a flight attendant for Continental Airlines during the 1950's and even garnered the "Miss Continental" award at one point. She later found her true calling by caring for the elderly as a certified nursing assistant. She loved animals gardening, music and the 'occasional' ice cream treat.

She was preceded in death by her parents; aunts, uncles, and other relatives.
Cremation has taken place.
Donations may be made in her honor to Denver Animal Shelter, 1241 Bayand St., Denver, CO 80223, or to one's favorite charity.
