Patricia Peterson Pinegar (born February 3, 1937) is an American religious leader. She was the ninth general president of the Primary of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints from 1994 to 1999.
Patricia Peterson was born in Cedar City, Utah, and grew up in Utah, California and Hawaii. Peterson attended Brigham Young University, where she met her future husband, Ed J. Pinegar. They were married in the Salt Lake Temple in 1956 and are the parents of eight children.
Pinegar and her husband lived in England while they presided over the England London South Mission of the church. They also later presided over the Church's Missionary Training Center in Provo, Utah.
In 1992, Pinegar was appointed as second counselor to Janette C. Hales in the general presidency of the church's Young Women organization. She served in this capacity until 1994, when she became the ninth general president of the Primary, succeeding Michaelene P. Grassli. Pinegar served until 1999 and was succeeded by Coleen K. Menlove.
During Pinegar's tenure, the Primary developed the Achievement Days program for 8- to 11-year-old girls to parallel the Cub Scouting program utilized for Primary boys of the same age. Also during this time the number of manuals for classes was cut to three to make it easier to combine multiple ages of children in the same class in smaller church units.
In November 2009, Pinegar began serving with her husband in the Manti Utah Temple, with her as matron and he as president of the temple.
