Patricia Joanne Sheaff Gimber

We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of Patricia JoAnne Sheaff Gimber. Patti was born on April 21st, 1953, in Oakland, California, and died at the age of 69 on October 11th, 2022, in Roseville, California.

Patti was a Rainbow Girl, a ballet dancer who could choreograph her own solos, a graduate of Head-Royce School (class of ‘71), a member of San Diego State University’s Madrigals from ’71 to ’72, and a member of the Oakland Symphony Chorus from ’73 to ’74. She completed an AA degree in Music from the College of Alameda in ’74.

Patti began a lifelong adventure with D. Gregory Gimber III on October 21st, 1978. She was a loving mother, who had the toughest job of homemaker to a house full of boys. Our home was always full of music that she would either sing, play for us on the piano, or crank up full blast on her stereo. Patti was widowed on December 8th, 2011, but always kept her wedding ring on. She was a devoted daughter, sister, friend, aunt, wife, mother, and grandmother.

Patti passed away peacefully, surrounded by her loved ones after complications from myotonic muscular dystrophy.  She is survived by her two sons, Christopher (Jennifer) and Matthew Gimber;  grandchildren, Zachary and Connor Gimber; sister Mary (John) Accacian, and brothers Bill (Linda) Sheaff and Brian (Cynthia) Sheaff.

The funeral will be a private ceremony with only close friends and family members present. In lieu of flowers, please feel free to make a donation in her name to: Head-Royce School, (510) 531-1300 (, or to any charity of your choice.
