Patricia graduated from Bristol High School in 1960 and then attended Salem College. She was a self-employed house cleaner and she was working until the day she got sick.
She was the most loving and supportive woman to all of her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. She loved her family no matter how crazy they were at times and would give away her last dollar without a second thought. She was always there for her family and she loved them all equally, although we all knew Gracie was her favorite. Her love will be carried in each of their hearts as they go through life knowing that she was their #1 fan. Patricia is to be missed by everyone who was blessed with the chance to know her.
