Patricia K. Lind


Patricia K. (Brabbin) Lind passed away on Friday, June 22, 2018, in Vista, California, surrounded by family after a valiant fight against cancer.

Born to Evalyne and Pat Brabbin on December 16, 1939, Patricia (or Patsy as she was known to many) grew up in Buckeye, Arizona. After high school, she studied at Hardin-Simmons University in Texas before returning back home where she would marry Delbert Beyer and have three children, Marcy, Scott and Michelle. After attending beauty school, Patricia proudly opened her own hair salon in Buckeye.

In 1973, Patricia moved to California, eventually settling in Chula Vista where she would raise her children. Patricia had a vibrant personality, a penchant for entertaining and a door that was always open to family and friends. She also loved to travel, including memorable trips to Hawaii, Japan, Spain and Alaska. Patricia pursued several careers in retail and owned two businesses, a costume shop and an upscale dress shop, in San Diego.

Patricia moved to Encinitas, California in 1999 to be near her son and his family. Her daughters later moved to the North County, happily bringing the family together in one place. It was in Encinitas that Patricia found what she called her dream job, a Receptionist at Coldwell Banker, where she made many friends doing what she did best – making people smile. Patricia cherished her six grandchildren and spent most of her spare time showering them with love and attention, which they joyously returned in kind.

Patricia is survived by her children, Scott Beyer, Marcy Beyer and Michelle Herrera; her sister, Phyllis Hallman; her brother, Larry Brabbin; and her six grandchildren, Hanna Beyer, Hallie Beyer, Sam Beyer, Stella Herrera, Sascha Herrera and Silas Herrera.

A Funeral Mass for Patricia will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Friday, July 20, 2018, at St. Mary Parish, 1170 S. Broadway, Escondido, California, Rev. Scott S. Herrera presiding liturgy. All are welcome to attend, and a reception will follow. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to one of Patricia’s favorite charities: the Community Resource Center North County (; and Helen Woodward Animal Center (
