Surrounded by her loving family, Patricia Florence (McNulty) Todd was lifted up to be with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on March 18, 2005, after a short, courageous battle with lung cancer.
Pat was born on May 8, 1955, in Greybull, Wyo., to Thomas J. and Sally O. McNulty. The family lived in Billings, Big Timber, Kalispell and Libby. One of Pat's greatest gifts from Heaven was her loving daughter Brenda (Close), who blessed her with granddaughters, Patience (8) and Faith (5 months).
Pat married her best friend and soul mate, Richard E. Todd, on Sept. 3, 1988. Working for Ames Construction, Dick and Pat traveled to many parts of the country, and Pat made every place a home and touched the hearts of everybody she met. She was more than a friend to many and loved by more than we can count.
When Dick and Pat married, two large loving families were united. In addition to Pat's own eight brothers and sisters, she was also blessed with seven more brothers and sisters, who she shared her life with and loved immensely.
Pat loved animals, fishing, cooking, gardening, music and crafts; and made dreamcatchers for many special friends and family members. She loved to laugh and always made those around her feel special.
Those left behind include her devoted husband, Dick of Billings; daughter, Brenda (Brian) Engle and granddaughters, Patience and Faith of Mitchellville, Iowa; five sisters, Trula (Mike) Hefley, overseas, Phyllis (Mark) Mead of Stanwood, Wash., Cathy (Bill) Kelly of Blaine, Wash., Jane McNulty and Nancy (Ed) Groves, both of Billings; and three brothers, Skip (Karla) Harvey of Billings, Tom McNulty of Phoenix, Ariz., and Tim McNulty of Cortez, Colo., as well as several nieces and nephews.
A celebration of Pat's life will be held at 11 a.m. Tuesday, March 22, in the Chapel of the Cremation or Funeral Gallery.
The family wishes to extend its heartfelt thanks to the staff at Horizon Hospice House for their loving care and support. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Horizon Hospice House, 1019 Neptune Blvd., Billings, MT 59105.
