Described by the fashion magazine as “the quietest and perhaps the most intense of the original supermodels,” Patitz didn’t follow the other ambitious models of her era to Paris or New York. Instead, she found comfort in California’s natural beauty and determined never to sell her soul to a corporation.

In a 2009 interview with the Guardian, she said:

“There were glamorous moments, but it was exhausting. The low points were having to travel so much and being exhausted. I always thought that [fashion and modeling] wasn’t who I was; it was what I did. It didn’t define me. Living out here and coming back to this place was like a sigh of relief in a sense.”

Patitz is survived by her 19-year-old son Jonah.
