Patricia Keyton Graven, 80, passed away peacefully on December 5, 2014, at 8pm, at Gulf Coast Medical Center in Fort Myers, Florida. While there, she had great conversation with the staff about the current affairs of the hospital industry today. The family feels so blessed that the staff provided her with such great care and was so engaged in her conversations. Her daughter and son-in-law, Maureen and Wade Shumway, were with her. Her daughter, Robin Estrada, and granddaughter, Penny Shumway, had been there also. She was enjoying a fantastic Thanksgiving trip with them on Captiva Island. One of her great loves was shelling on Captiva and Sanibel Islands with her family. Patricia was born a strong and self-reliant child in Kansas City, Missouri in 1934. Her parents were Henry and Vera Keyton. She truly loved her parents and is now reunited with them. She would often fondly tell stories of her childhood with her brothers, Henry and Cecil, and their escapades. Both boys remarked as grown men that their sister was the best cook, best mom, and one of the smartest ladies that ever existed. Patricia was passionate about life and a tireless provider for her family. This passion led her to become a hospital administrator at Memorial City Hospital, where she worked for approximately 20 years. As an administrator there, she was at different times responsible for the business office, safety officer, disaster planning, etc. When she retired, Memorial City Hospital was a part of the Memorial Herman group and they hired her as a consultant to assist with their Joint Commission Accreditation. Most of all, Patricia was a mother. She loved all ten of her children. She is predeceased by three of her beloved children Sue Vohs, Joseph Michael Graven, and Moira Anne Graven, but will now be able to embrace them again. She is survived by her children and their spouses and friends: Robin Estrada and Gyl Holland, William and Rose Vohs, Melissa Hargitai, Cindy Vohs, Maureen and Wade Shumway, Joe and Shawn Duncan, and Michael Duncan. She is survived by her grandchildren: John Estrada, Sara Vohs, Timothy Scoggins, Nicholai Hargitai, Mark Hargitai, Penelope Shumway, Kimberley Duncan and Reagan Duncan. She is also survived by her beloved great grandchildren. Patricia was a faithful follower of Christ and the Catholic Church. Some of her most meaningful times were at St. John Vianney Church in Houston, where she was blessed and honored to be a lector.
