Patricia L. Modderman, “Patti”, was born November 10, 1940, in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada to Casey and Patricia Bonn. She was joined by the birth of her brothers, Terry and Richard, when she was six years old and they moved to Vancouver, BC where she started first grade. A few years later the family moved to Portland, Oregon and became naturalized citizens. She was later joined by her sisters, JoAnn and Janice. Patti attended elementary school in the Portland area and graduated from Saint Mary’s Academy in 1958. After the birth of her daughters, Margie and Teena, she started with Safeway Stores in Portland in the purchasing department, typing purchase orders. After the birth of her son, Richard, she continued her career in the advertising department. In 1972 she met Dave Modderman. They were married in 1973 and moved to Fremont, California where she continued her career while raising a blended family of five children which included John and Stacey, all teenagers. She retired in 1999 as the Director of Inventory Management of the San Francisco Safeway Division.

Patti and Dave retired to Rancho Mirage, California and lived in Rancho Las Palmas Country Club where they were both involved with playing golf and Patti became the President of the Lady’s Golf Association. After five years there they decided to move closer to their children and moved to PebbleCreek Golf Resort. Patti passed away on January 2, 2020, from complications of surgery.
Patti is survived by her husband, Dave Modderman; daughters, Margie Brito, Teena Hildebrand, and Stacey Munsell; sons, John Modderman, and Richard Modderman; eight grandchildren, four great-grandchildren; brother, Terry Bonn; and sisters, JoAnn Taylor, and Janice Fisher.  She was preceded in death by her parents, Casey and Patricia Bonn; brothers, Richard Bonn, and Steve Bonn.

  4. Sending Love & Prayers to all of you at this time. Patti was always fun to be around, she loved life & she loved to laugh and she always seemed to be up for an adventure. I know she will be missed greatly, here on earth but she will be well loved by her Savior in Heaven and all those whom she held dear to her heart that passed before her. A special prayer in my heart for Dave as he begins to move forward. May he take comfort in knowing they will be together some day in the future, and that family & friends are always nearby to help at this time of loss. 🙏
