Patricia (Trish) Marie Gette passed away at her Pleasanton home on September 1, 2021 at the age of 73, surrounded by her loving family. Trish was born the first of four children in Columbus, Ohio to Brice and Mary Mantel. She lived in the small town of New Carlisle, Ohio until she married the love of her life, Bill Gette. Trish died 51 years and nine days after they were married.
After giving birth to two sons, she fulfilled her lifelong dream of becoming a registered nurse by attending the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and receiving her Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing. For almost 30 years, Trish took great joy and pride in caring for sick newborns and their families during a very tough time in their lives. Her rewards were often the notes and cards she received from families after the babies became healthy adults.
Her true passion was her family, and she raised her children with loving kindness and devotion. As both boys married, she welcomed both daughters in law with love as well, and then showered the grandchildren with devoted attention. She liked to read, sew for her grandchildren, and make quilts and scrapbooks for them.
Trish is survived by her devoted husband Bill. She greatly enjoyed traveling extensively with him, leaving her with very fond memories. She is also survived by her sons Aaron and Ryan, their wives, Jen and Yoon, her grandchildren Jami and Adam, her sisters Carol Davis and Susan Aiken, and her brother Brice Mantel. She leaves a legacy of deep love and kindness for her family and her dear friends.
