"I slept and dreamt that life was joy. I awoke and saw that life was service. I acted and behold, service was joy. " Rabindranath Tagore
Patricia Dawn Near English, age 78, passed away peacefully and surrounded by love on January 2, 2021, following a brief illness. She was born September 17, 1942, to Beatrice Michos and Perry Near.
Patricia loved to love people. She danced like she worked crossword puzzles, with brilliance and in joy. She never met a chocolate chip cookie she didn't like and had the most wonderful, eclectic taste in music.
For more than 35 years Patricia worked in places populated with the less fortunate such as Camarillo State Hospital and several nursing homes, providing social services, but more than that, honoring the humanity and protecting the dignity of each person she served. This vocation truly suited her servant's heart. She also instilled the virtues of love and service in all who knew her through her strong example.
Patricia is survived by her progeny Travis and Loni Kate English, her brother Greg Phelps, and so many more family members, both biological and chosen, as well as her beloved church community at the Universalist Unitarian Church of Santa Paula.
There will be a virtual memorial via Zoom coordinated by her church on Saturday, January 23rd at 2pm. Details will be made available on the church website: uucsp.org/events.
