Dedicated Build Employee and Friend Patti Cooper Abbott Dies

Patti Cooper, Build Rehabilitation IndustriesDear friends,

It is with a heavy heart and great sadness that I, on behalf of myself and Build Rehabilitation Industries, announce the passing of Patti Cooper Abbott, a friend and employee.

Patti was my friend for over 38 years and a Build employee numerous times during those years, including the last six years of her career where she served as our Director of Support Services. During her time at Build, Patti was dedicated to ensuring that developmentally disabled adults were given every possible opportunity to achieve their individual employment goals. Patti’s love for life and tireless efforts empowered our clients to become more independent and productive members of our community.

Patti Cooper Abbott is survived by her husband Tony Abbott and her children Paul and Brandon, along with lots of sisters and grandchildren.

Celebration of Life services for Patti will be held in Temecula on Saturday, February 18 and in Idyllwild on Sunday, February 26. Specific locations and times for these services will be widely communicated when finalized.

In lieu of flowers, Tony and Patti’s family ask that donations be made in her name to Build Rehabilitation Industries. You may donate to Build by clicking on the following PayPal button or mail your donation directly – address below.
