Longtime Alaskan Patricia Meagher died Monday, May 18, 2009 at Heritage Place in Soldotna. She was 72.
At her request, no services are planned. Her ashes will be scattered in the Kenai River in a private ceremony.
Mrs. Meagher was born Mar. 19, 1939 in Tulia, Texas. She was a homemaker. She moved to Alaska in 1982 and lived in the Soldotna and Kenai areas.
"Patricia Meagher possessed the kindest of hearts and the soul of a saint. Her main mission in life was nurturing her family and doing everything she could to make her children and spouses welcome in her life. Her many friends and acquaintances also benefited from her love and generosity. Her grandsons were the light of her life. That light got brighter in January 2008, when her great-grandson, Bryan, came into her life.
"You always felt good being around Pat. She could make you feel better about life and could always find the 'Silver Lining' in any situation. A man could not ask for a better mother-in-law. She was never judgmental and was always positive in tough times. Pat will be missed for her kindness, good karma and her heart of pure gold. We will all miss you Banner," her family said.
Mrs. Meagher was preceded in death by her husband, Cliff Meagher, sister, Dorothy O'Brien, and brother, Keith Jackson.
She is survived by her daughters and sons-in-law, Christy and Rod Berg of Soldotna and Dawn Meagher and Elias Lira of Napa, Calif.; sons, Marty and Dennis Meagher of Napa, Calif.; grandsons Nick Berg of Soldotna, and Patrick O'Reilly and Elias Lira Jr., both of Napa; and a great-grandson, Bryan Berg of Soldotna.
