Pat Vinton, 88, passed away Aug. 11, 2022 at Linden Court Nursing Home in North Platte.

Patricia Louise Vinton was born Feb. 2, 1934 in Hyannis to Willard and Frances (Motl) Vinton. The oldest of five children, Pat grew up on the family ranch south of Whitman. Like many Sandhillers born during early ranch establishment, she and her siblings worked long days with their parents harvesting and feeding hay with draft horses, caring for cattle, tending enormous gardens, milking cows, raising chickens, and building and fixing fence. They lived in a small, primitive house until Pat was 15, when she helped dig out the basement for the new house using horses, or often, just a shovel.
