Patricia "Pat" McGee Gray, 89, of Denver, Colorado, died peacefully on August 26, 2023. She was born on October 26, 1933, in Spartanburg, South Carolina, the only child of George and Frieda (Fitzgerald) McGee.
Pat attended Agnes Scott College where she received a BA in English with a minor in French. She married the late Retired Capt. Donald Gray in 1956. They made their home wherever the US Air Force took them, from England, to upstate New York, the southern US, and eventually to settle in Denver, Colorado in 1972. Pat had a dramatic flair and enjoyed developing melodrama productions and singing in the Denver First Unitarian church choir.
She devoted her life to her family, which included her "other" daughters and granddaughter, many extended family and friends and multitudes of beloved "four-leggers". She had a keen sense of curiosity and humor and was known for her witty puns and intellectual musings. Pat had a special fondness for animals and always had a furry friend by her side.
She is survived by her son, Daniel Gray (Chris Anderson), her daughter, Claire McMullen (Charlie), and her daughter, Jamie Boes (Neil). Pat also leaves behind her cherished grandchildren, Isabelle, Frances, Taylor, Heidi, and Ben.
In memory of Pat, contributions can be made to the Maxx Fund Denver Colorado, a local organization dedicated to helping animals in need. Donations can also be made to the National Wildlife Federation, an organization that was close to Pat's heart.
Patricia "Pat" McGee Gray will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her. May her soul rest in eternal peace.
A Celebration of Life service will be held on Monday, October 23, 2023 at 1:00pm.
