Patricia Ann Sedich passed into the arms of her Good Shepherd on Aug.
29, 2020 after a long battle with multiple sclerosis. Patty was
welcomed into the world on July 31, 1957, in Kingman, Arizona, by her
parents Tiburcio Juan (Butch) and Celia (Vinnie) Esquibel. She
attended local schools, graduating from Kingman High School in 1975,
where she enjoyed her time as a cheerleader. She married her high
school sweetheart, George Sedich, in September 1975.

Patty became a nurse, working at Kingman Regional Medical Center and
as a recovery nurse in an out-patient facility. Her professional
career and love of gym workouts was cut short by a diagnosis of
multiple sclerosis, which she battled with great courage the rest of
her life. Her husband, George, made this long journey with her during
their marriage of almost 45 years.

Patty was a devoted daughter to her mother, Vinnie, and father, Butch.
Despite her own struggles, she offered both love and encouragement to
both of her parents. Family was her passion and purpose, and her love
for her siblings and nephews never wavered. Patty’s two nephews, Tyler
and Kyle, became the focus of her life as her world narrowed because
of her illness. Patty and her husband, George, attended every game and
every school event they could in order to support the boys’ activities
and efforts. She took her role as godmother very seriously,
encouraging her nephews to excel.

Patty was predeceased by her father, Tiburcio Juan Esquibel, and her
mother, Celia Esquibel. She is survived by her husband, George Sedich;
sisters, Viola (Dean) Pethers and Lisa (Kevin) Julle; her uncles, Moe
Murillo, Joe Murillo, and Roger Murillo; and her nephews, Tyler Julle
and Kyle Julle.

A private memorial gathering for Patty will be at a later date due to
pandemic concerns.
