Patricia Barbara (Bullene) Ryan, beloved wife of Kevin Ryan, died on the first day of May. Both she and Kevin were lifelong citizens of Salinas, growing up a little more than a mile apart. Pat's roots in California go back six generations.

Pat and her twin Michael were born on the fourth of December, 1947 to Richard and Lillian Bullene. She was a member of Sacred Heart Parish all her life. The important events of her life were celebrated there: her Baptism, First Confession, First Communion, Confirmation and her Marriage to Kevin. Appropriately her Mass of Christian Burial will be at Sacred Heart. There we will gather to celebrate a life of commitment to family, Church and community.

Pat was an active member of Sacred Heart Parish and for fourteen years president of the Altar Society. Both she and Kevin enjoyed the time they spent in Rodeo Association events. She began her working career at the Parks Department of Salinas, then the Elections Department of Monterey County. For over two decades she served in the Superior Courts of the county.

Pat's death leaves a vacant space, not only in the heart of her husband Kevin and his sister Theresa Whitford, but also in those of her siblings: Michael Bullene (Melinda), Mary Krouse (John), Fr. Richard Bullene, Kathy Bullene and Elizabeth Stelloh (David). She will be mourned by her many nieces and nephews, grand nieces and nephews, and by friends whose lives she touched with her gentle care and concern.

Visitation will be held Thursday, May 4, 2017 from 3:00pm to 7:00pm at Struve and Laporte Funeral Chapel, 41 West San Luis Street, Salinas, CA 93901.

The Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Friday, May 5, 2017 at 10:00am at Sacred Heart Church, 22 Stone Street, Salinas, CA 93901

Burial to follow at Queen of Heaven Cemetery, 18200 Damian Way, Salinas, CA 93907.

Donations in Pat's memory may be made to Sacred Heart Parish or the American Lung Association.
