On May 23, 2018 at age 83, in Honolulu, Hawaii. Patricia was born in Philadelphia, PA, to Peter and Helen (Gillespie) Falls. She trained at Fitzgerald Mercy Hospital as a medical laboratory technician and later worked at American Medical Labs in Fairfax for many years, before beginning her second career in real estate in Northern Virginia at Coldwell Banker. Patricia met her future husband Robert (a career military officer) in Philadelphia and they married in 1957, sharing 55 years together travelling the world for both work and pleasure. Robert predeceased her in 2012.
Patricia moved with her family to Reston in 1974. She loved museums, theatre and concerts (particularly Wolf Trap), and was a long-standing Washington Redskins fan. She and Robert both fell in love with Hawaii when they first visited on an R&R trip in 1966. Following their retirement, the couple divided their time between Honolulu and Reston. She is survived by her two daughters, Pamela and Leslie; her grandson Jesse; brother D. Gerald Falls and many beloved nieces and nephews. She will be deeply missed by her family and friends.
Patricia will be laid to rest next to Robert on Monday, the 15th of April, 2019 at Arlington National Cemetery. The service will held in the Old Post Chapel at Joint Base Myer–Henderson Hall at 2:45pm. All are welcome
