Alice Ivey Patrick

August 17, 1920November 6, 2018

Mrs. Alice Ivey Patrick (98) of Raleigh, NC, passed away on November 6th, 2018.

Known for her green thumb, she never met a plant she did not like. Her wisdom and knowledge extended to local history, the Bible, and common sense solutions. Mrs. Patrick lived her entire life in the Cary/Raleigh area. She was a member of Macedonia United Methodist Church.

She was the daughter of Albert and Cora Atkins Ivey. “Miss Alice”, as she was affectionately known to most, was preceded in death by her loving husband of 50 years, W. Lee Patrick. She is survived by her daughter Betty Patrick Worley and husband Darrell Worley of Clayton, NC; daughter Jane Patrick Casey and husband Eric Casey of Arlington, VA; and granddaughter Jennifer Worley of Morrisville, NC.

Miss Alice often said her greatest accomplishment was being a mother and grandmother.

Funeral services will be at Macedonia United Methodist Church, 2700 Jones Franklin Road, Cary, NC 27518, on Friday, November 9th, 2018 at 2 p.m. Visitation will be one hour before the service in the church parlor. The family will receive guests at other times at the home. Burial will follow at Montlawn Memorial Park.

“Aunt Alice” was always such a bright spot during our visits back to Cary, NC. She was especially always kind to my Mother... which I greatly appreciated. Her ‘knack’ for having a green thumb was of great pride to her and of interest to me as a florist.. My deepest sympathies to Betty and Darrell, Jane and Eric, and Jennifer.. at this most difficult time... Our prayers for comfort are with you.

I am so sorry to hear about Aunt Alice’s passing. I have many fond memories of her and Uncle Lee when they would come to visit my Grandmother and Granddaddy, Velma and John Patrick. She was my favorite of all the family visitors because of her sweet nature and the kindness she always showed to my Grandmother. To Jennifer, I know how hard it is to lose a beloved Grandmother; sending lots of love, thoughts, and prayers to all of you for comfort in your loss of such a dear lady.

With love,
Katherine Reed Strobel
(Susan Patrick’s daughter)
