Patricia Moyes
Baker City, 1940-2016
Patricia “Patty or Pat”
Ellen Moyes,
76, passed
into that
blessed and
eternal rest
on October
27, 2016. Her
service will
be held Fri-
day, Nov. 4 at
2 p.m. in the United Meth-
odist Church, 1919 Second
St. in Baker City and will
be followed by internment
at Mt. Hope Cemetery and
a luncheon at the church
for family and friends.
Patty was born June 2,
1940 in Mount Vernon
Springs, Oregon to Robert
“Bob” Thomas Bales and
Lila Grace Friendly. She
spent the fi rst few years
of her life on the Bales
sheep ranch near John Day,
Oregon. The Bales rela-
tives sold off the ranch and
in January of 1945 Patty’s
family moved to Baker,
Oregon. This is where she
completed all her school
years and where she spent
the rest of her life.
Patty attended Baker
Business College and went
on to pass the state tax
exam. Her working years
were spent as a bookkeeper
for the YMCA and other
Baker businesses. She also
did tax prep and had stints
as a cab driver and an
Avon lady.
In 1960 she was married
to Robert “Bob” Maurice
Moyes of Baker, Oregon.
They had 2 children, Mi-
chael Maurice and Kevin
Brent. Her most special
memories were of camping
with her parents, broth-
ers and in-laws, digging
old bottles that had turned
purple, and going hunting
and fi shing with her dad.
Patty and her sister-in-law
Wanda would get Grandma
Irvin to babysit the kids
and they’d go bottle and
deer hunting and while
they would never see any
deer, just elk, they did
have a good time. Patty
cherished the memories of
how good her sisters were
to her, of giving her oldest
niece her fi rst bath, and
the thrill of the birth of her
In 1978 her marriage
to Bob was dissolved,
but Patty continued to
enjoy the company of her
husband’s siblings, Phyllis,
Phillip, Wanda, Norman,
Becky and Nathan. Tragi-
cally in 1982 Patty’s son
Kevin died in a drowning
Patty loved carnations of

all colors, stuffed animals,
especially teddy bears,
reading books and playing
computer games. She used
her giant pen collection,
some 2,000 or so unique
pens, to do crossword
puzzles and word fi nds. If
you went on trip, her usual
request was that you bring
her back a pen or two.
Elvis was her favorite
performer and her collec-
tion of Elvis records was
something she refused to
part with. She enjoyed the
rock ‘n’ roll of the 60s and
80s, Def Leppard, Led
Zeppelin, and Glen Frey
and The Eagles. She was
thrilled to attend a Toby
Keith concert with grand-
daughter Miranda in the
last decade of her life.
Patty’s son, Michael, a
disabled veteran, recalls
how she was like a mom
to all his friends and how
she would do anything
for anyone. She taught his
Uncle Phillip how to drive
and took Uncle Nathan
out for lots of driving
practice. She was a friend
to everyone she came in
contact with and the best
mom ever!
Patty lived the last 2 and
half years at Settler’s Park
Assisted Living Communi-
ty where a giant teddy bear
sat in one of the chairs.
She was preceded in death
by her son Kevin Moyes;
parents Bob and Lila Bales
of Baker; sister Roberta
Bard of Pueblo West, CO;
brother Dennis Bales of
Umatilla, OR; sister-in-law

and Mandy White of Bend,
OR; sister, Sally Farmer
and brother, Darrell Bales,
both of Baker; in-laws,
Wanda, Phillip, Phyllis,
Nathan and Becky; and
3 generations of nieces
and nephews. Patty loved
Michael’s half-siblings,
Keith and Jennifer Lee
and Michelle Boudreau as
her own. She dearly loved
her 9 great-grandchildren
Sean, Skyler, Airyana,
Kenneth, Brandi, Braydon,
her buddy Blake, Breeana
and Isabella. Last but not
least, she had a special
love for Michael’s dog
