Obituary: Harriet Patricia "Patty" Walser McCain

Harriet Patricia Walser McCain or "Patty as she was known throughout most of her life, finally succumbed to several health issues on April 24, 2015 in Prescott, Arizona. She was 66. She now rests in the hands of her Lord, Jesus Christ.

Patty was born to Anthon "Tony" and Elizabeth "Betty" Walser in Williams, Arizona on July 11, 1948. She let no school subject get the better of her and continued this pursuit to master any subject all of her life. Her drive led her to graduate as Salutatorian of Williams High School Class of 1966. Her academic ability garnered her a full scholarship to the University of Arizona.

In her younger years, she was the head twirler of the Kachina Dolls twirling group, which regularly marched in local parades and competed in state-wide competitions at the Arizona State Fair. She was also a member of the Williams Masonic Lodge Rainbow Girls and a Williams High School representative to Arizona Girls State. In her mid-thirties, she joined the U.S. Navy and served as an electrician technician serving in Maine and Hawaii.

Patty's life was filled enough for more than one person and never dull. She was unique, she was loved and she will be missed.

Preceded in death by her father Anthon Wasler, mother Elizabeth Walser, sister Toni Ann Walser Thompson and survived by her brother Michael Walser, her nephews Samuel Walser, Wesley Walser and Jeffrey Thompson and nieces Lisa Thompson and Julie Thompson.
