Patricia Anne O’Donovan was born July 7, 1932, in Washington, D.C. the daughter of Jerome J. and Jane (Hayes) O’Donovan.

She attended Immaculata-Dunblane Elementary School, Georgetown Visitation Preparatory School and Western High School, Washington, D.C. She was united in marriage to Edward R. Osborn April 21, 1956, in Washington, D.C. He preceded her in death December 1, 1999.

Pat was an assistant buyer for Julius Garfinckel & Co., in Washington, D.C. prior to moving to Davenport in 1956.  Her Davenport career began at Petersen Harned Von Maur where she worked until starting her family.  While raising her son John, daughter Margaret, and their beloved Basset Hound Cleo, Pat was active in the community volunteering at Mercy Hospital, the Kahl Home, the Little Stone House, PTA President at Grant Elementary School, President of the Women’s Bar Association, and member of the Junior League of the Quad Cities.

She had a real zest for life with a lovely disposition and a beautiful smile that made everyone feel better!

In later years she returned to work at Von Maur and then Younkers. Her wonderful sense of style, fashion, creativity and engaging personality made shopping an event! She retired in 2003.

She had a variety of interests including fashion, art, music, theatre, movies, politics, sports especially horse racing and the Chicago Cubs.  Toasting her team with a glass of champagne after their World Series victory!
