Obituary for Patricia Ann Wells (Eicke)

Patricia Wells of Washington D.C. passed away unexpectedly of natural causes on February 4th 2020 at her home in Washington DC at age 67.

Pat was born Patricia Ann Eicke in Washington, D.C. on January 8, 1953 to Mary and Woodward Eicke. She grew up in Kensington and Rockville Maryland and graduated from Woodward High School in 1971. Pat worked at Fannie Mae for many years where she met her life partner Jim Bradley who passed away in 2017. Pat and Jim loved each other deeply and enjoyed traveling all over the world together, being with family, and spending time at their home.

After retirement, Pat committed much of her time and much of her love to volunteer work with the American Red Cross and the People, Animals, Love organization - PAL. She and her dogs frequently visited the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center to comfort patients and their families. She was particularly committed to helping our service members and their families and repaying them for their service to our country.

Pat is survived by her beloved dog Elsa, her brother John Eicke and sister Karen Shoemaker, her nieces Samantha, Catherine and Melissa, her nephews Steven and Christopher, Jim’s children Kristin and Matt, her great nieces Jamie, Madeline and Savannah and her great nephew Spencer.

Pat leaves behind an incredible legacy of giving more than she took. For her family, the patients she visited and their families, her fellow volunteers, her coworkers and her neighbors, she was a loving and generous person who always reached out to help. Her legacy is one of love and service to others, which everyone she touched knows so well.

There are many ways to honor Pat’s memory and celebrate her life - thank members of the military and their families for their service and their sacrifices, pet a dog and give them a treat, give without hesitation when you see a need, talk to a stranger, take a trip with someone you love to someplace new or do anything that makes the world a better place for others. If you do one of these things, think of Pat saying “thanks for passing it forward”.

A celebration of Pat’s life will be held in the future. Internment services will private. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be given to Hero Dogs, Inc., P.O. Box 64, Brookeville, MD 20833-0064, http://www.hero-dogs.org/.

We worked with Pat and Jim and Fannie Mae and enjoyed getting together socially as well. Pat was so welcoming and always fun to be with. It was great to see the photos of Pat and her family when she was young! We are so sorry to her family for their loss. Please let us know if there will be a service, as we would love to come. Mike and Amy King

As part of the Red Cross Dog pack I will miss Pat very much not only as an amazing leader but also as a friend. Pat was a special, unique person who taught me much by example through her selfless actions.
One of the things I learned through Pat was how many stores are "pet friendly". She once told me she loved taking Rika to Tiffanys. I was shocked to learn Tiffanys was dog friendly. She said "just google dog friendly stores". As a result Sasha gets to go with me many more places than I would ever have known she could. Now that Pat is gone she has made me very aware of yet another important thing. Life is too short. Love and appreciate those in your life every day because they may not be here tomorrow.
Pat, we love you and are missing you terribly!

Pat was such a lovely caring person. Although I only knew Pat since Oct 19, when Hero Dogs therapy dog Ashley and I started our therapy dog work with the Red Cross at Walter Reed, she immediately welcomed us into the Red Cross family and made us feel right at home and part of the team. Pat was a big supporter of giving back to vets and their families. As a vet myself she often said she was truly grateful to have the opportunity to give back to the veteran community. Pat will be truly missed and will be impossible to replace. God speed Pat and rest assured you made a positive difference in the lives of many people.

Pat was one of a kind. She gave so much of herself and she will be missed very much. Visiting Walter Reed and the patients there was a priority in her life and she loved every minute of it. She would always comment "what a great visit we had today". Ivy and I will miss her terribly. The Red Cross Animal Therapy Pack have lost a very special friend.
❤️ Petra Roman
