Patti Ryan passed away on Saturday, Dec. 14, 2013, surrounded by her friends. Patti was the loving daughter of Ione and Pat Ryan, and sister to the late Robert Ryan. Patti was born and raised in San Francisco and had lived in Sonoma for the last 20 years.

Patti leaves behind aunts, cousins, and many friends whom she loved very much, and a lifelong friend, Tony Shepard from Palm Desert.

Patti was chief flight attendant for World Airways and served our troops between California and the Far East during the Vietnam War. Patti later became active in real estate in San Francisco and Sonoma and will be missed by many.

Memorial services are pending and will be published in the paper after the first of January.

We love you, Patti.
