Holton, April 8, 1956 in Raton, New Mexico.  They raised one daughter and three sons.

Mrs. Holton had a strong Catholic faith and unconditional love for her family and friends. She loved the history of her family.   She spent countless hours researching genealogy and shared her joy with all those interested in her research. Patricia was a devoted wife, mother and friend.
In her early years, she worked for the Salida Fuel Company and later for Utility Trailer in City of Industry, California as a purchasing agent.  She also worked for many years as a school bus driver in Buena Vista. Patricia will live on in the hearts of those who love her.

Patricia was preceded in death by parents Edward and Mary Bradbury; maternal and paternal grandparents; son, William Holton, brothers, Ed Bradbury Jr., Edward C, Samuel, Ace, William Bradbury; sisters, Mary Ellen Dano, Gertrude Elsie Bradbury; and great granddaughter, Janelle.

My grandmother was wonderful wife, kind friend and loving mother. I will remember her making sandwiches for our picnics, sending sweet birthday cards and her stubbornness! I wish we had had more time together, but I am relieved her suffering has ended. All my love, Ashley

Dear Bob, Jeni and family. I would like to express my sincere sympathy in the loss of your mother. Unfortunately, I never met her, but I know by the stories you have told of your Mom that she was an incredible person. May the memories you hold deep in your heart comfort you during this time of sadness and grief. May these memories also keep her forever living in your hearts, your minds and your soul. God Bless and Comfort You All.

She is at peace with God, imagine a world without pain or heartache. Now imagine her there with God...smiling for eternity. He will wipe every tear from their eyes, there will be no more death, or mourning or crying or pain. Revelation 21:4 (NIV).

Keeping you in our prayers, Love Susan and Jerry
