Patricia Ann “Patti” Groh, 69, of Madera, California, passed away on April 20, 2021.
Patti was born to Frank and Betty Shipe in Oroville, CA on October 12, 1951. She graduated from Oroville High School where she met the love of her life, Robert, and they moved to Fresno in 1971. She went on to receive a Bachelor’s Degree from California State University, Fresno as well as her Master’s Degree in Social Work.
Patti was a loving wife, mother and grandmother. She spent her last 26 years living in the Madera Ranchos where she loved to cook and was an active member in her church. She was also a member of the Ranchos Hills Senior Center and the Golden Valley Chamber of Commerce. But her greatest joy was spending time with her two grandsons. She also loved to do volunteer work and in 2017 she received the Volunteer of the Year Award from the Golden Valley Chamber of Commerce.
Patti will be deeply missed by her husband of 51 years, Robert; their son Tim and his wife Patty; grandsons Hudson and Carson; brother Jim Shipe and sister Barbara Shipe; as well as many extended family and friends.
