Patricia A. Disney — matriarch of a family whose $10-million donation was the foundation of a comprehensive cancer center at Providence St. Joseph Medical Center — has died. She was 77.
Married to Roy, Walt Disney's nephew, for more than 50 years, the couple divorced in 2007. She died Friday of Alzheimer’s disease surrounded by family members at her home in Toluca Lake, according to announcements from the hospital and the family.
Roy Disney, who remarried in 2008, died a year later at 79.
The couple donated the $10 million in seed money for the Roy and Patricia Disney Family Cancer Center, the first comprehensive cancer treatment facility in the San Fernando Valley, which opened in 2010.
