Love Story 
The Perfect Woman 
Sadly Patricia Roc died on December the 30th 2003 in Locarno, Switzerland officially
from kidney failure although it was really a combination of a number of things associated
with old age. Below are links to obituaries reported in the Media at the time.
I am sure we will all remember her for her delightful performances and all she gave to us.
Even if she did not know every one of her fans personally I know she cherished all the
good wishes and interest that people sent her. I also feel she touched, sometimes quite
deeply, many lives through her work.
