Dear Golden Eagles,


It is my sad duty to inform you that Mrs. Patricia C. Pearson, widow of MajGen Jeremiah W. Pearson, USMC (Ret), LTO 6/1/2012, and sister of Golden Eagle Col Gary Van Gysel, USMC (Ret), passed away on 11 Jan 2015 in her home in San Juan Capistrano, CA. Patty was born in Rochester, NY in 1942 and attended college at Albany State Teacher's College. After 20 years of teaching high school English in New York, she moved to California and met and married Jed Pearson in 1986. Jed passed away in 2012; they had no children in their marriage. In recent years, Patty suffered greatly with acute arthritis and heart disease; she never complained and was always the bright spot in a room. She is now with our Lord and Jed and no longer in pain. Patty will be interred with Jed at Arlington National Cemetery at a date to be announced.


In Sadness, Don Boecker- Pilot
