Andrea Nicole Patacini
Andrea Patacini passed away at the age of 39, at her home January 22, 2021. Andrea was born July 28,
1981 to Steven and Karen Cloudt in Baker City, Oregon. She grew up in Baker and graduated high school from Baker High School in 1999. After graduation, she went to Boise State University for two years then transferred to Oregon State University to complete her degree in nutrition. Her last year of education was spent in Omaha, Nebraska where she completed a nutrition internship.
Her first job was at St. Elizabeth Hospital in Baker City, Oregon where she worked for one year. Her next job was in Sunnyside Hospital in Washington where she worked for four years. Andrea was most recently working for Trios Health System as a Registered Dietician and just received recognition for serving the system for five years.
While working at Sunnyside Hospital, she met her husband, Robert Patacini after being introduced through his mother. Andrea and Robert reside in Kennewick, Washington where they are raising their two children Lena age 8 and Mason age 6. Andrea, Robert and the kids enjoyed boating on the Columbia River and travelling. Andrea loved to dance, hike and visit with friends. Andrea was always joking and trying to make people laugh.
Andrea developed diabetes at the age of nine and was an active member and advocate for juvenile diabetes research. As a registered dietitian and fellow diabetic, she loved guiding and educating new diabetics. One of her biggest accomplishments was helping develop the diabetes camp for the Trios Health System.
Throughout her life, Andrea was known for her great laugh, friendly nature and her ability to make those around her laugh. She enjoyed watching re-runs of the Office even though it irritated her husband! She touched a lot of lives in her short time with us.
She is survived by her husband Robert, children Lena and Mason, step daughter Amy, parents Steve and Karen Cloudt, brother, David, sisters, Christy and Amy and four nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her grandparents Joe and Lena Frericks, Avery Cloudt and Wealtha Silvera, her aunt Nikki Rankin and Uncle Bruce Cloudt.
A friend from high-school has set up a Go-fund me account as a gift to the children and to pay for any other expenses needed. If you would like to donate to the fund look her up under “In Memory of Andrea Patacini” on gofundme.com. Donations to the American Diabetes Association would also be accepted in honor of Andrea.
We are so sorry for your loss Andy and we all send our sympathies to your family. She was an amazing lady and did make a big difference in so many lives. We wish you well during this challenging time.
Our thoughts are with you. Love to you, Aunt Peg, Uncle Allen, Carey, Michael, Jason and your loving Grandma Pat.
