Pat Kerr, our devoted mother who placed her relationship with her children and grandchildren above all other aspects of her life, passed away on October 28, 2022, in her home in Santa Cruz, California, at the age of 93, from reasons that were unrelated to any illness or accident.
Pat had placed her relationship with her children and grandchildren above all other aspects of her life. Despite the fact that Pat Mahoney was born in Sterling, Colorado on January 19, 1929 to parents R.W. “Mac” Mahoney and Wilma Lowder, he spent his youth in the peaceful hamlet of Willard, Colorado. His parents were R.W. “Mac” Mahoney and Wilma Lowder. Pat Mahoney was born to R.W. “Mac” Mahoney and Wilma Lowder, who later became Pat’s parents.
In 1946, she graduated from Sterling High School with a diploma, and the following year, she attended Colorado State College of Education in Greeley to further her education. She completed her education together with the other students in her class. Pat’s maternal and paternal grandparents, as well as her brother Edmund Mahoney and her sister Jean Ramey, all passed away before she was born.
Her husband Samuel Kerr had already passed away before she did, thus her passing was not unexpected. Her children James Kerr (and his wife Connie) of Aptos, Susan Kerr (and her husband Melody Randel) of Santa Cruz, Elizabeth Halperin (and her husband Keith) of San Francisco, and Patricia Kerr (and her husband Gerald Carlin) of Berkeley are her living descendants. Susan lives in Santa Cruz, Elizabeth lives in San Francisco, Susan lives in Santa Cruz, and Patricia lives in Berkeley.
Patricia lives in Berkeley, Susan lives in Santa Cruz, Elizabeth lives in San Francisco, and Susan lives in Santa Cruz. Susan also lives in Santa Cruz. In addition, she leaves behind eight of her grandchildren and five of her great-grandchildren. She was a doting grandmother.

The funeral will take place on November 5, at 5:00 p.m. Those who desire to show their condolences are encouraged not to send flowers but rather to make a donation to a charitable organization of your choosing in lieu of sending flowers.
