Patricia (Meadows) Todhunter
Resident of El Cerrito Patricia (Pat) quietly slipped away the evening of September 8, 2018 following a long battle with Alzheimer’s disease. She was born 88 years ago in Berkeley to parents Lorina Edwards Meadows and Roland Earl Meadows. She was predeceased in 1997 by her daughter Laurie Jean Robertson. She is survived by her husband of thirty-six years, Davis Todhunter and her son, William Robertson of Sparks, Nevada.
Pat was very proud that she had attended Berkeley High and the University of California, Berkeley. (She would not let her husband wear anything red; not even at Christmas.) She was a member of Lambda chapter of Sigma Kappa sorority and for many years volunteered her professional services to keep the house beautiful.
For almost forty years she maintained her business, Patricia Robertson Interiors, at a retail location in Orinda. Pat’s major at Cal was Decorative Arts.
Pat enjoyed her membership in Rotary, first in Orinda and later El Cerrito. She was a member of the American Society of Interior Designers and served on the board of the San Francisco Chapter. In addition to being a member of the Berkeley City Club, she was part of a group that restored much of the interior of the Club’s historic Julia Morgan building. Pat was a member of First Presbyterian Church in Oakland where she found the opportunity to share her professional skills and resources.
There are many neighborhood dogs that are going to miss the treats she would hand out. Patricia was perhaps the kindest, gentlest and most giving person any of us are likely to meet.
