Patricia McClure

November 22nd, 1958 - August 13th, 2014

Patricia Joy McClure was born 11/22/58 to Ralph Morgan Parker II "Pete" and Barbara Gertrude Parker . She had an older brother, Ralph Morgan Parker III, and later a younger sister (Pamela Ruth Parker-Martin - 11/09/61 - 08/04/13). She lived in California up until High School, when she and her family moved to Rocky Point, Long Island, NY. There she found her true love and passion for art. Everything from drawing and painting, to creating miniatures for doll houses, there was no craft or art project Pat didn't enjoy, and excel at. The family moved to Evergreen, Colorado, in 1976. There, while working at her father's auto parts store, she met Allen William McClure Jr. "Bill." The two were married only a few months after they met. In 1981 she gave birth to her only child, Genevieve McClure. After divorcing Bill that same year, she moved back to Evergreen to be closer to her parents. Soon after the family moved to Indian Hills, Colorado. Pat found a new passion, Buttons! She joined the Aspen Leaf Button Club, and the Colorado State Button Society. and was an active member of the button community up until her death. When she moved to Longmont in 2003, she joined the Lark But'ning Button Club, while still staying active with the Aspen Leaf members. During her time as a Button Member, Pat held various council member roles, and won a variety of awards for her amazing buttons and displays. One of her favorite things to do, both within the club, and in all other aspects of her life, was to teach. She loved teaching classes on everything from polymer clay buttons, to drawing, to bow making, and everything in between. Pat was diagnosed with breast cancer in January of 2011. After a mastectomy and treatment, she was in remission for a brief time in 2012. In 2013 the cancer had come back, and had spread to her liver. After more treatment, she was back in remission, but again only briefly. Her breast cancer spread to her brain, and she went back into treatment for a third time. After a long, hard battle with cancer, Pat passed away on August 13, 2014, in the Applewood Living Center in Longmont, Colorado. She is survived by her daughter Genevieve, her nieces Emily Martin, Sarah Martin, Margo Parker, her brother Ralph Morgan Parker III, her nephews Adam and Jackson Parker, and her great niece Aurora Gava. She was a wonderful woman, and will be sorely missed.

I will miss Pat at our button club meetings, workshops and shows. She was an expert on plastic buttons, and whenever a question came up, we would look for Pat for the answer, which she always had! Most of all, I will miss her smiling face and positive attitude. Losing her is a great loss. My sincere condolences, Darlene Gruber

For many years my Mother worked at the Pepsi Center as an Usher. She LOVED getting to work with people, and getting a "front row seat" to so many great events. She was especially proud of meeting people when she got to work backstage, like the band Green Day, or various hockey teams. One of her biggest accomplishments, and something she was very proud of, was going back to school in 2011. She started classes at Front Range Community College, and decided to enroll full time. She was working towards an Associates Degree in Art, and was so exciting to be learning and doing new things in the art world. She was featured in the Firehouse Art Gallery in Longmont, and was asked to return at a later date. Her art, like her, was stunning. She was very interested in pastels during the final months of her life, and really enjoyed getting to learn a "new to her" art form.
