Patricia "Pat" Hecht

Patricia (Pat) Hecht, resident of Davis, California, died Thursday, November 2, in San Francisco,  surrounded by her family.

Pat was born September 24, 1940 in San Francisco to William and Maxine Fullendorf. She attended St. Anne’s Grammar School, Mercy High School, and earned a Bachelors’ Degree from San Francisco State University.

Pat taught elementary school in San Francisco and Copperopolis, California. She later worked at Longs Drugs in Davis and retired from Woodland Community College where she worked in Student Services.

During her retirement years Pat gave generously as a volunteer at the Davis Senior Center. She served as a Senior Peer Counselor through the Yolo County Older Adult Program and later through the Citizens Who Care program of Yolo County where she made weekly visits to Seniors in need of support to navigate life’s challenges.

Pat also participated in the City of Davis’ Citizen Police Academy along with other events and organizations which support the community of Davis.

One cannot remember Pat without being aware of her insatiable humor, her generous spirit, her genuine love of people, the arts, and the San Francisco Giants.

Pat is preceded in death by her parents, William and Maxine Fullendorf of San Francisco, her brother William (Bill) Fullendorf of Foster City, and her son, William Earnest (Bill) Hecht of Pleasanton. She is survived by her loving friend, Margot Loschke, daughter Patti Hecht of Elk Grove, daughter Margaret (Peggy) Hecht Traverso and son-in-law Murre Traverso of Davis, and Nancy Hecht (Bill E Hecht) of Pleasanton. Pat was a loving Grandmother to Tyler (Patti Hecht), Dylan and Joshua (Bill E Hecht), and Shelby and Joey Traverso (Peggy Hecht Traverso)

A celebration of Pat’s life will be held Saturday, December 9, 2017 at the Davis Senior Center from 11;00 A.M. to 2:00 P.M.

A thought about Pat of the Doody Clan. Pat once said my sisters Mary,Margaret and I I were her cousins twice removed. She sure had a fun loving way of looking at life. My thoughts and prayers to her family and friends. Patty Simonson

I am so sorry to hear about Pat. I visited with her and Margot several times, but not much recently. Even though Margot was my friend Pat became a friend too and it was always delightful to visit with her. Praying for all of the family and Margot.

I knew Pat years ago and wish I had done a better job of staying in touch with her. She was a unique and generous woman with a kind and pure soul. She never met a stranger, and I never heard her utter an unkind word. As most everyone has noted, she had a great sense of humor and made those around her feel happy to be in her presence. I will miss Pat.My sincere condolences to her family.
