A picture of Pat Honchar

Patricia Anastasia Honchar ’70, April 25, 2013, in Atlanta, Georgia, following a long illness. Pat earned a BA in anthropology from Reed and began her career as an epidemiologist after completing an MS at Columbia University School of Public Health. She worked for the U.S. Public Health Service in Europe, Ohio, Texas, and Georgia. Pat and physician Richard Rothenberg were married in 1988 and they had a son and daughter. In 2000, they made a second home near Halifax, Nova Scotia, where they spent summers, and Pat devoted time to being a mother, writing, and her work as an epidemiologist consultant. She studied and collected Inuit art and was a dog fancier. Survivors include her husband, children, and stepson. “She will always be missed!”
