Patricia Ann Lawler
Patrica Lawler Seep was born February 5, 1937 and grew up as a military “Brat”. (Though her married name was Seep, she continued to use Lawler professionally). Following two years as an educator in the U.S., she joined DoDDS from 1961-74 and enjoyed assignments in Turkey, Germany, England and Okinawa. Pat spent her career as a school counselor, psychologist and, finally, as director of Exceptional Children’s Services at Camp Lejeune, NC, where she worked for over twenty years.
Pat was an outgoing, giving and caring educator who was admired by students, staff and the community. Many students indicated she made a lasting difference in their lives and had kept in touch with her for more than thirty years. A former Kubasaki H.S. graduate, who Pat had befriended especially after the girl’s mother died of cancer, helped care for Pat during her last two months. Pat passed away May 17, 2001 at Twin Rivers Nursing Home in North Carolina after a long battle with diabetes.
