Patricia Walsh

October 2, 1956 — December 24, 2023

 

Patricia Ann Walsh (nee Doogan), beloved wife of Michael A. Walsh, loving Step-mother of Michelle (Bryon Moudy) Walsh, Theresa (Kris) Wicklund and Christine (Jesse Earles) Walsh, step-grandmother of Kara Wicklund, sister of Katy (Nick) Campolongo, aunt of Tara (Doug) Haas, Maria Campolongo and Amy Campolongo, preceded in death by her parents William and Marion Doogan.

Patricia was a lifelong nurse and caregiver.  She obtained her Registered Nurse credential (Bethesda Hospital, 1978) and BS in Nursing (University of Cincinnati, 1993) and completed graduate level business courses at both Xavier University and UC.  She initially held clinical and supervisory positions in critical care, cardiology, and cardiac and bone marrow transplant at University (1978-92) and Jewish Hospitals (1993-94) in Cincinnati.  Her contributions included education of patients and medical staff, as well as coordinating and co-authoring published medical research.  Patricia was commissioned and served as a Captain in the US Air Force Reserve Nurse Corps from 1991-95.  Patti became a senior national consultant focusing on hospital medical supply chain solutions, cost reduction and value analysis with McFaul & Lyons, Ernst & Young, Cardinal HealthCare and McKesson (1994-2002) and served as a Manager at Christ Hospital (2009-10) in this role.  She also worked as a Community Outreach Coordinator for Hospice of Cincinnati (2002-04) and Director of Business Development at VistaCare Hospice (2006).  During her time in North Carolina, Patti volunteered with the Chocowinity Community Emergency Response Team (CERT:  2016-20).  Throughout her life, Patti was a vital and proactive medical consultant on her own care, that of her family and many friends.  She remained a Licensed Registered Nurse in Ohio until her passing.  She will be best remembered for her genuine concern for others and for nature, her positive personality ("sparkle'') and smile.  Asked for her own epitaph:  "I tried".
