Known as Pat by all who knew and loved her, Patricia Jean (Vinson) Etchart was born in Oklahoma City and passed away in a Las Vegas hospital with her husband Ron and daughter Debbie at her side. She left a large extended family in Nevada, Oklahoma, and Texas.
She is survived by her husband of 28 years, Ronald (Ron) E. Etchart. They had three children: Debra (Debbie) Jean (Etchart) Lee (husband Carl) of Laughlin, Richard (Rick) Allen Etchart of Utah, and Steven Etchart of AZ.

Pat married Ron in May of 1986 and joined his large, NV Etchart family. She dearly loved her mother-in-law Dora Etchart (deceased) of Pioche, NV. She worked for several years in the Caliente Youth Center where she excelled working with the teens. Pat enjoyed camping out and fishing in Lincoln County with Ron, their two children and their two large basset hounds. She also enjoyed the many family barbeque’s with her Etchart family and friends in Panaca. Ron, Pat and Steven had been living in Kingman, AZ for the past few years where Steven has just completed the first grade.
