Resident of Danville

On Wednesday, January 7, Pat Hejtmanek passed away with her family by her side. The cancer that she had fought so well nine years ago had returned, and her body couldn’t fight it again. It is a blessing that she wasn’t sick long, and that it all went very quickly.

Patricia (Mostny) Hejtmanek

Pat was born in Santiago, Chile, as the first of five children. At the age of 12, she immigrated to San Francisco with her family and quickly adapted to American life. She was married happily for many years, and had three amazing children. While she spent most of her life in the Bay Area, she also lived in Bakersfield and El Paso. Her primary focus was being a mother. She also volunteered with her childrens’ schools, Jewish Organizations, and the Junior League. In recent years, she has been successful professionally in selling real estate.

She was a vibrant, positive person. She was feisty, witty, gave great advice, and was full of energy. Her laughter was contagious. Pat was a friend to many and left a lasting impression on those whom she knew.

Pat is survived by her children, Jen and husband Tom, Steven and Rachel; her grandchildren Abbie and Zoe; her parents, Kurt and Marion Mostny; her siblings Daniela van der Steen, Yvonne Nouri, David Mostny, and Andrea Mostny; as well as many cousins, nieces, and nephews.
