Pattie M. McDonald Urrabazo Johnson, age 75 of Buckeye, AZ died July 30, 2019, in Buckeye. She was born April 10, 1944, in St. Ignatius, MT to Alex and Carmelita McDonald. A strong woman, Pattie had powerful faith. She believed in taking care of business and found a way to do anything that she needed to do. She was a realist and a philosopher and accepted everyone with unconditional love. She would speak with anyone and always left them with wisdom that would help them to feel good about themselves.
Vivacious and fun-loving, she possessed a contagious joy that she shared with those around her. She loved music, especially Elvis, and broke into dance whenever she heard music. She enjoyed building, collecting antiques, and drinking Pepsi! Her children and family meant the world to her.
