Patricia Ruth Hecht

September 7, 1954 — September 28, 2023


Patricia Ruth Hecht, age 69, passed away peacefully on September 28, 2023, in her home. She was born September 7, 1954, in Greenville, Michigan to Edward and Kathleen Hecht. She was a 1973 graduate of Montrose High School.

Soon following, she married Sam Hawks, August 30, 1974, and to the union was born Mary and J. Dutch. She married Steven Saunders on March 28, 1987, in Las Vegas, Nevada. Together they raised their five children. They shared 24 years together.

She was a jack of all trades. Patti was known to be one of the first female welders; she received a welding certificate in 1982. She was a CNA nurse. She was also an animal technician on a dairy farm. Her last career was being a professional seamstress.

Patti truly lived life to the fullest through simple pleasures: chatting with friends and family, spending time with her grandchildren, sharing her knowledge in the kitchen, and making gifts in her craft room.

She is survived by her mother, three siblings, five children, twelve grandchildren, five great grandchildren, and many nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Family, friends, and others whose lives Patti touched are invited to Delta Christian Church 795 1600 Rd, Delta CO; Sunday October 8th at 3p.m. to join in remembrance of the strong woman she was. In lieu of flowers the family asks for donations to Hope West.
