CHP's Golden Gate Communications Center is deeply saddened to report the passing of Public Safety Dispatch Supervisor II (PSDSII) Mary Pat Marshall, A06588. Mary Pat passed away unexpectedly on July 26, 2014, at approximately 0500 hours at Kaiser Hospital, Santa Clara. Mary Pat was admitted to Kaiser Hospital on July 16, 2014, to undergo surgery to treat a heart condition. Due to unforeseen medical circumstances the day of the procedure, the surgery was not performed. She remained admitted at Kaiser, and on July 24, 2014, a pace maker was implanted. Mary Pat was in good spirits on July 25th, and was looking forward to being released in a couple days. The morning of July 26, 2014, at approximately 0420 hours, Mary Pat’s heart went into arrhythmia. The hospital staff was unable to resuscitate her.

Mary Pat Marshall joined the Department in 1982, working in the San Francisco Area as a Communications Operator. In 1991, with the consolidation of dispatch centers, she was assigned to the Golden Gate Communications Center. She promoted to Public Safety Dispatch Supervisor I in 1999, and PSDSII in 2003.

Mary Pat Marshall was an icon in the world of dispatching and 9-1-1 calls, and was deeply involved in the California Chapter of the National Emergency Number Association (CALNENA). Her technical knowledge and expertise in the Computer Aided Dispatching system and related programs were unsurpassed.

Mary Pat was loved and admired by many, and she will be deeply missed.

Memorial services have been arranged for Thursday, August 7th at 11:00 AM at Holy Rosary Church 1313 A St, Antioch, CA 94509 (925) 757-4020.   Reception to follow at the VFW Hall around the corner on 815 Fulton Shipyard Rd (At Wilbur Road), Antioch, CA 94509 (925) 757-2010 [reposted from CalNENA].
