Patti Hallendorff born April 27th, 1930 in Fort Smith, Arkansas finally made her last trip home to be with her family, on or before, and her heavenly father on July 14th, 2016. Patti lived her last years in Berryville, Arkansas, except for a year or so in Fort Smith, having retired with her husband Richard from California in 1994.
Patti, whose professional name was “Patti Starr” was a dancer, vocalist, musician and popular band leader for many years in and around the areas of California, Oregon and Nevada. For the longest period of her home was in the Ventura, Ojai, Santa Barbara area. Patti and her band performed at private parties (many of which were for famous people), fairs, clubs and on floats in the Pasadena Rose Parade and Portland Oregon Rose Parade. Patti did say however, that in all her years of performing, the high point of her, was being asked to play at the White House for First Lady, Nancy Regan’s birthday party, by President Ronald Regan himself! She stated that if she never played another instrument or sang another note that was the epitome of her career.
Patti was preceded in death by her parents, William R. Myers and Lillian J. Myers (Nita), and by her dear husband, Richard H. Hallendorff. Patti loved this country and was a proud, outspoken conservative patriot. She was a member of the “Daughters of the American Revolution” and the “Fellowship of the Christians and Jews”. She was happy to sing anytime or any place (honorable) when asked. She sang at The Great Passion play every season for more than five years and by invitation at several different churches around the Eureka Springs and Berryville area. Patti loved singing gospel music and loved her God and her family. Patti always worked hard and focused on what she had to do. She always did her best.
Pattie leaves behind her three daughters, Christina S. Stephens, Jan I. Caballero and Robin D. Donahue, six grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. Patti’l life was long and full, and she always said, “When you get to heaven, look for me. I’ll be playing and singing with the heavenly band.” Patti will be buried next to her husband and many of her beloved family. Inscribed on her headstone will be – “Perfections at Last”.
