BATH — Patricia Prevorsek passed away peacefully in the presence of her family on Nov. 3, 2014. She was born in Eltham, Kent, outside of London, England, to Harry and Rosina Welton. She was the oldest of four children, Valerie Welton Vellenoweth, Alan Welton, and Penny Ann Hemmings.

During World War II, she survived multiple bombings and was buried in basements twice. She eventually was evacuated to the country. When she was 18 years old, she traveled to the U.S. and met her first husband, Richard H. Burhoe, while working at the Yale Library. She had four children, Leslie, Laurie, Tom and Liz. With her husband in education, she lived on various private school campuses including the Thatcher School in Ojai, Calif., St. John’s in England and Kent Place in Summit, N.J. She enjoyed raising her children, playing tennis and bridge, traveling during the summer breaks, camping in Scotland and Wales and eventually having a waterfront cabin on the coast of Maine.

After the end of her first marriage, she became a paralegal and worked for Allied-Signal in Morristown, N.J. She met her second husband, Dusan C. Prevorsek, who was a polymer scientist, accomplished skier, pianist and violinist. They enjoyed many years of sailing, skiing and traveling all over the world. After retirement, she split her time between a hillside home in Hood River, Ore., and a quiet cabin in Whitefield, Maine.

She became an accomplished textile artist, made beautiful quilts, handspun and hand dyed wools, and wove elaborate coverlets that won several regional prizes in Oregon. She also enjoyed gardening, the opera and spending time with her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

In addition to her parents and second husband Dusan, she was predeceased by her sister Penny Ann Hemmings of Welling, Kent, England.

She is survived by her brother, Alan Welton of Portsmouth, England, sister, Valerie Vellenoweth of France. She will especially be missed by her children: daughter, Leslie Burhoe and partner Chris Cushman of Wayne, Maine, grandchildren, Bert and Ida, greatgrandchildren, Nathalie, Stella, Fern, Emery and Wyatt; daughter, Laurie Burhoe and husband Jon Keyes of Bath, Maine, grandchildren, Luke, Katie and Nina; son, Tom Burhoe and wife Carla of Diamond Point, N.Y., grandchildren Allison and Mitchell, daughter, Elizabeth Burhoe Mills of Bath, Maine, and granddaughter Amanda.

Trisha was a kind and loving person, quick to smile and she found humor and happiness in her very full and varied life. She was a wonderful Nana to her grandchildren and greatgrandchildren and left us with beautiful hand-knit sweaters, handmade quilts and woven items. But mostly she left us with wonderful memories of her caring manner, resilient character and her love for us all.

A memorial service will be held at 3 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 15, 2014, at Daigle Funeral Home, 819 High St., Bath. A gathering of family and friends will follow at the Kennebec Tavern, Commercial Street, Bath. In lieu of flowers, please send contributions to the Maine Farmers and Gardeners Association, P.O. Box 170, Unity, ME 04988. Trisha loved the Common Ground Country Fair and everything that MOFGA stands for. Condolences may be made online at m.
