Patricia Ann (Hubertus) Tobin Obituary
Patti passed away peacefully after a long illness, with family by her side, in Grand Junction, CO.

She was born and raised in Durango, CO, the eldest child of Cloyd and Bertha Hubertus. The daughter of longtime Chief of Police and his sainted wife, Patti enjoyed an idyllic childhood as a Becky Thatcher in a Tom Sawyer world. She loved the Durango of her youth. She married in 1973, and she and her husband raised their three sons in Durango and Dolores, Colorado, and Susanville, California where Patti carved out a long career as a bookkeeper for the Susanville Indian Rancheria. She made many friends and always remained the consummate Mom.

She is survived by her three sons, Bo (Misty) Tobin and Shea (Michelle) Tobin, of Grand Junction, and Ross (Becca) Tobin of Erie, Colorado; her loving husband, Brian, and nine grandchildren. Also surviving are sisters, Susie and Shelley Hubertus and three brothers, Tom, Steve, and Mike Hubertus, all of Durango, Colorado. Her parents, and her brother, Bobby, preceded her in death.

Toward the end, she had lost her mobility and her eyesight, but she never lost her indomitable spirit which she had exemplified all her life and which served as an inspiration to her boys whom she raised to honorable manhood. Her first thoughts every day and her final thoughts before passing were for her boys. They love her mightily and will cherish her memory. Patti's siblings and extended family and friends will also carry her love with them.

Special thanks to Patti's care givers, Kim McIntire, Shellie Johnson, Deborah Meryhew, and Jessie Butler, and the vigilant staff at HopeWest Hospice.

The family plans a spring memorial in Durango.
