Patricia Louise Sorensen, age 93, passed away Sept. 6, 2018 at her home in Escalante, Utah. She was born April 16, 1925 in Muskegon, Michigan to Gladys Arnold and Richard C. Revord, one of three children. She married Robert George Sorensen in April of 1942. He died in March of 1993.
Mom was very proud of her fruit orchard and blackberry patch. She could always be found out working in the back yard or in her saw shop where she cut and polished rocks from all around the world. She was a silversmith, making all her own settings for the rocks she cut. Mom started working with metals while in high school and continued on for over 75 years. She taught silversmithing to many of the seniors in Val Vista Village in Mesa, Arizona where she spent her winter months.
Mom loved talking to people. She was interested in what brought them to Escalante and where they were from. She had many opportunities meeting and making friends while owning and operating the Moqui Motel with her husband Bob.
Survivors include her two children Steven Sorensen and Sue (Donald) Mosier both of Escalante, Utah; five grandchildren, thirteen great-grandchildren, and eighteen great-great-grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her brother and sister, her husband, and her parents.
A family memorial will be held at a later date. Arrangements were made with Mosdell Mortuary.
