Georgia Patricia Knowles Bridley

Patricia (Trish) Bridley died May 9 at the age of 68 surrounded by her family and friends, after a brief illness.

She was born June 9, 1942, in Amarillo, Texas, graduated from Amarillo High School, and worked in Amarillo until moving to New Windsor, N.Y., in early 1966. There she married U.S. Air Force Capt. Charles A. (Chuck) Bridley. They lived in various parts of the United States, ending up in Dublin when Chuck retired from the Air Force in 1982. Trish studied photography for several years and created exceptional pictures. She also was an early computer expert, initially working with companies to convert from manual accounting systems to early computer systems. While working at West Point, she developed a program she called the Key Word Index that later was used as a model for an early database program.

Ms. Bridley was predeceased by her brother Wayne Knowles. She is survived by her husband Charles; daughter Cathy; Aunt Mary Gentry; sister-in-law Sharon Knowles; sister-in-law Mary Ann (Bridley) Szporluk and her husband Roman Szporluk; and nephews and nieces. A memorial service was held May 28 at St. Clare's Episcopal Church, 3350 Hopyard Road, Pleasanton. Donations may be made to the St. Clare's Christian Preschool Rain Campaign or a charity of choice.
