Patricia "Patsy" Lee (Wagner) Horner August 28, 1934 ~ December 27, 2012 Patricia Lee (Wagner) Horner, 78 died on December 27, 2012 of a heart attack while sleeping. She was born in Yakima, WA to Gweneth Isabel (Cuyle) Heron and Leland D. Wagner on August 28, 1934. She is survived by her husband Kenneth D. Horner, her sister Judy (Charles) Parsons, her sister-in-law Connie Medernach (Jack) her sons and their wives, Jeffrey Horner (Carla), Gregory Horner (Dawn), Michael Horner (Michelle), eight grandchildren, two great grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. Preceding her in death is her sister Avrille (Jeanie) Patterson and her mother, Gweneth Heron. Patty met her husband, Kenneth "Kenny" while attending high school in Olympia, WA. She attended Washington State University for a short time before coming back home to marry her high school sweetheart. After they were married, Ken and Patty moved to Vancouver, WA where they raised their three sons. When the boys were young, they spent a few years in Seattle, WA and Salem, OR before returning permanently to Vancouver. After retirement, they moved to Ridgefield, WA where they have lived for the past 17 years. Patty was very involved with her children while they were growing up. When her children were older, she went back to work as a secretary and business clerk for the Vancouver School District; she was with the district for 15 years before her retirement. Patty was an avid gardener, loved to cook (making everything from scratch) and adored animals. To her grandchildren she was "Snow White", as she had names for all the critters who would regularly visit her backyard. She had many friends and always put others' needs before her own. Nearly nine years ago she was diagnosed with oral cancer and beat the odds three times. She was a true fighter and an inspiration to family and friends. Funeral services will be held at Evergreen Memorial Gardens, Saturday January 5, 2013. 1101 NE 112th Ave. Vancouver, WA 98664. Phone (360) 892-6060. Please sign her guestbook at www.
