Patsy was a very loving person who did so much for everyone else. She lovingly babysat and cared for her nieces and nephews over the years. She loved to read and enjoyed spending time working on word puzzles.

God saw her getting tired and a cure was not to be, so He wrapped his arms around her, and whispered, "Come to me." Her golden heart stopped beating, her hard working hands now rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only TAKES THE BEST!
