Patsy and I went to high school together. I was shocked to hear of her passing. She was always fun to be around. Her hearty laugh could always be heard in our senior lounge. Thoughts and prayers go out to her family. R,I.P., Patsy. ❤️

Patsy was so full of joy. She could bring a smile to anyone's face. Her laughter was contagious and we will miss hearing it at the golf course. My thoughts and prayers are with your family. May God's peace comfort and strengthen all of you.

Pamela, my deepest condolences to you and your family. I golfed with Patsy on Wednesday nights on the Bunker Babes golf league at Meridian Sun for several years. I absolutely adored your Mom as she was such a treat and joy to be around. I will miss her energetic personality and enthusiasm for the game of golf and life in general. Then there's her laugh which always made me laugh. May God comfort you and your family and sustain you with the kind of peace that only comes from Him during this most difficult time. God bless and keep you all.

Wow where do I start? With tears in my eyes and love in my heart, I could go on allllll day about Patsy whom I had the pleasure of working, laughing, giggling, knee slapping, secret telling with while at Creative Wellness. She was more than someone I worked with, She was a light that NEVER went dim, her presence entered the room before her name left lips. She introduced me to her son James and all I could think was wow he is as awesome as she is... She left a huge imprint on my heart and Im grateful to have met such a beautiful and genuine person through and through! To her family Peace Healing and so much Love, keeping everyone in thought and lifted in healing spirits. Oxoxoxox
Love Always

My lasting fond memories of Patsy are at the Meridian Sun Golf course, where she was a member of the Wednesday night "Bunker Babes". To watch Patsy play golf was very much like her as a person -- a golf swing of elegance, patience, methodical, and straight down the middle! Our best times were after golf, dining on the patio with Patsy usually enjoying a salad or a BLT with
a glass of red wine!! Patsy clearly defined the meaning "LOL" -- laughing out loud. Her laugh was infectious and I will hear that laugh echoed forever! I will miss her beyond words. May you rest now, Patsy, in His presence and peace.

I had the pleasure of working with Patsy for 3 years at Creative Wellness. She was one of the best managers I've ever worked for. I have so much love and respect for this woman. I've never met someone who had so much compassion and heart for all people and for her job. I was heartbroken to hear of her passing but I know she is now in a better place. To say she will be missed is an understatement. My deepest condolences to her family. May you find peace and love in knowing how much Patsy touched my life as well as everyone who knew and loved her. She truly was a special person and someone I will never forget.
