Patricia Murphy Gayne Memorial Fund

Donation protected
The Gayne Family, Alison and Hayley, daughters of Patti Gayne have started this GoFundMe as a result of the outpouring of support from family and friends wanting to help during their time of need. Patti Gayne was a force and will be forever remembered for her witty one-liners and huge heart, among other innumerable qualities.

This fund will help with funeral expenses, home health care, and other expenses.

Please Note: Out of respect for Patti's wishes as she was a very private person, please do not share this GoFundMe link publicly.
Friends and family members have been invited to participate in this fund via the Facebook Group page or directly via email.

In other words, this fund is published for an exclusive audience, not for public distribution.

Thank you in advance for respecting this request.

Alison and Hayley will be inviting people to the Facebook Group.
If you have a suggestion of someone that should receive an invite, you may email:

Thank you.

The Facebook Group where this private GoFundMe link is shared is also a place where you are invited to share pictures and memories of Patti.

This fund will be open in perpetuity. Even small amounts add up. Thank you in advance for your contribution. Donors who contribute at the $100 level and above level will be gifted a print from Alison or a 1-hour voice lesson from Hayley as a thank you. If you would like to redeem their thank you gifts, please note that in the comment section of your donation and they will make arrangements to mail you a print of Alison's stunning visual art or schedule an expert vocal lesson with Hayley.

Not only is this fund going toward end-of-life health care and funeral expenses but we are raising money to retrofit the Gayne house where Patti's daughter, Alison and her grandson, Seneca are living. The house requires many updates.

Unfortunately, the septic system at the Gayne house had to be repaired in the last weeks of Patti's life. This was a huge unexpected expense. Moreover, the gravel driveway was recently redone because of the septic repair. The house also needs an entire electrical update and the foundation needs to be repaired in addition to other required renovations.

Many thanks for your donations.
Remember, please do not share this GoFundMe link publicly.
We look forward to seeing memories and photos shared in the Facebook Group.

With Gratitude,

Alison and Hayley
They Entire Extended Gayne Family
