Patricia Farmer

March 12, 1944 — October 29, 2021

PATRICIA MARIE FARMER, 77 of Brule, passed away October 29, 2021, at Great Plains Health in North Platte.

Patricia was born March 12, 1944, at Omaha, NE, to Robert and Julia (Kearney) Hitchcock. She graduated from Jefferson High School.

Trish resided in Nebraska, Illinois, Iowa, Washington, and Arizona, before settling in Los Alamitos, California, where she worked at a large hospital as the secretary to the Administrator.

While visiting her mother, Julia, in Lemoyne, Trish made the acquaintance of Ty Farmer, and the couple was married a week later on July 20, 1978. Trish and Ty made their home in Brule, where they've resided ever since.

Trish and Ty raised miniature horses, which she loved. She was also a very talented painter and had a proclivity for depicting wildlife. She saw and appreciated the beauty in the things around her, from art and jewelry to relationships with her family and even her two favorite dogs Roscoe and Maggie, who preceded her in death. She also had a wonderful sense of humor.

Trish was more comfortable staying at home with her dogs, miniature horses and watching her favorite tv shows. She had a deep faith and longing for God.

Trish was preceded in death by her parents and son-in-law, Richard Brewster.

Survivors include her husband, Ty of Brule; children, James (Anna) Scollard of Apple Valley, CA, Connie (Tim) Barrett of North Platte, Laurie (Scott) Cooper of Bradford, IA, Paul (Marci) Farmer of Letcher, SD, Samantha Farmer of Brule; 16 grandchildren; 10 great-grandchildren with one more on the way; brother, Richard (Bev) Hitchcock of Carroll, NE; along with many other relatives and friends.
