Patricia Ann Vernon, 88, passed away February 1, 2020. Pat was born
November 22nd, 1932 in Midvale, Utah, to Harold T. and Thelma Kemp
Hewlett. She was the eldest of four children. Gigi, as she's
affectionately known here in Lake Havasu City, moved to California
with her Parents in 1947.

She married the love of her life, Jack Vernon, in 1950. Together they
were blessed with 54 years of marriage, two children, three
grandchildren; one chosen grandchild; six great-grandchildren and
several nieces and nephews.

She owned a salon, Pat's Hair Fashions. In 1969, she and Jack moved to
the Colorado River, where they owned and operated The Rite Spot. They
retired to Lake Havasu City, in the early 80s. She was a strong,
witty, sarcastic, fun-loving and free spirited person, who was very
loyal to her family and close friends.

She loved spending time with her family, riding horses and Harley's,
playing bingo, cruising the high seas with her friend Marilyn after
she was widowed and driving her convertible PT Cruiser. Never without
a witty comeback, she had sayings that would make the saddest person
erupt in a full belly laugh. We are all incredibly saddened to have
lost such a bright light in our lives.

Pat was preceded in death by her husband; Jack, daughter; Glory Ann
and sister; Barbara Meyers.

She is survived by her brother; Harold Hewlett and sister; Mary
Galloway. Daughter; Jacklyn Ballard (Randy), grandchildren; Steven
Broadbent, Jennifer Wilson and Jackson Allender.
