Patricia (Patti) Jean Aijian (Hobbs) of Canyon Country, CA., passed away unexpectedly in Coeur d’Alene, ID on August 19, 2019.

She was born in Spokane, WA. on June 17, 1955, to Richard and Marjorie (Ottosen) Hobbs. Patti graduated from Rogers High School in 1973 and attended Whitworth College where she met the love of her life, Philip Aijian. They married in 1978 and had two daughters, Meri and Christi. Patti and her family loved to travel and especially enjoyed going to Disneyland. She was extraordinarily wise, kind, and caring, and she was full of love for her friends and family.

Patti worked as an EMT at Encino Hospital and Valley Hospital in Los Angeles, CA, and then was a business owner for almost 30 years in Van Nuys, CA. She graduated from Le Cordon Bleu Culinary Arts Program in Pasadena, CA. She was a fabulous chef and loved to bake and cook for family and friends. Patti was also proud to be the pastor’s wife for the past 18 years.

She is survived by her husband Phil, her two daughters – Meri (Travis) Keller, Anaheim, CA, and Christi (Jack) Scott, Culver City, CA; three grandchildren – Bradley (11), Aaron (9), and Miranda (7) Keller and Baby Scott (due in December); beloved dog Lily; Sharon “Sheri” (Jim) Bradley, (sister and brother-in-law) Spokane, WA; Gerri Hobbs (step-mother); sister and brother in-laws, nieces and nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins and dear friends.

The family is extremely thankful for the wonderful care from the staff of Kootenai Health Hospital and LifeCenter Northwest. There will be a gravesite gathering in Spokane and a memorial service at First Presbyterian Church in Newhall, CA to be announced later.
