Patricia Marie Herrin

July 29, 1954July 18, 2020

On Saturday, July 18th 2020, the world suddenly lost a light of love with the passing of Patricia Marie Partington Herrin (Patti). Patti truly shined a beacon of love everywhere she went. Laughter makes the heart grow stronger, and Patti certainly contributed to that with her wit. She loved to make us all laugh! In 1st Corinthians 13, we read of the message of love. Patti never met a stranger, put her family and friends first and made sure that we all felt loved. Her loyalty and devotion to her husband, family and friends was unwavering! As we grieve the passing of Patti, let us look up to the heavens and know that her love will continue to embrace us.

Patti is survived by her husband of 28 years David, her stepson Jonathan, her brother George, and his spouse Cathy. Her sister Deborah, her loving in-laws Jim and Ann Herrin, her brother-in laws Phillip and Michael, and their spouses Pricilla and Becky. Her beloved nieces and nephews Meagan, Ryan, Stuart, Elizabeth, Mason, Kylie, and her aunts, uncles, and cousins. In lieu of gifts you are welcome to donate in Patti’s memory to the charity for breast cancer at komenatlanta.org

Goodness, what a sweet soul...always a smile, a caring word or a hug to lift your spirits. I miss her messages via the phone, a call or across the computer...hearing her call me that nickname that only she used 💕 Patti touched so many lives and will forever be in our hearts. Thank you for letting me call you my friend....it was a privilege and an honor. I know you’re watching over us. Rest in peace now...until we meet again! Hugs, sweet lady...

I am absolutely heartbroken that I will never hear your voice or see your sweet face. We have shared so much over the years...both joys and heart aches. You were my rock when I needed you. I will miss you terribly and I will think of you daily. Blessings and love to your sweet family. Until we meet again. Love you always.

Patti and I exchanged a lot of words, and right now I'm at a loss for any. She would've known exactly what to say to make things better, or at least paint them in a light that would make all of this more bearable.

Thank you, Patti, thank you so very much for all the warmth and color you gave to me and so many others so freely.

My heart is sad for the loss we have all suffered. Patti was an amazing, happy and loving person. She was always in tune to people and could tell when that little extra was needed. When you needed it the most, there would be a note, a card a call or a message from her. Our hearts are so broken! Murata, friends and family will remember that sparkle you brought every day! RIP my sweet friend until we meet again! Love Karlene

Friends don’t go away, they walk beside us every day.
Unseen, unheard, but always near.

I will miss your hugs❤️

My Dear sweet Patti,
As many have said, I too am in disbelieve. The news of your passing has been devastating to many. You were one of the most caring, giving and supportive person that anyone could ever encountered. I was so blessed to call you not only my co-worker but my friend. Your beautiful smile, warm hug, humorous comments will be deeply missed.
Our muRata family will forever fill the void and we will miss you tremendously. My heart breaks for Deb, David, George and your family. I pray for God's comfort to surround them today and always. I love you my friend, fly high sweet Angel until we meet again.

My dear Patti. Even though we lived miles apart, I have always loved you dearly. I will always remember your wonderful laugh and smile. You will be sadly missed by so many that truly loved you. You will always be in my heart! I'm quite sure mom and dad with be there to greet you. Maybe uncle Bill too!

I send my sympathy and condolences to David, Debbie and Georgie, who I love so much.. God Bless!

My heart breaks to hear about Patti passing away. I remember the day she was born. She was the sweetest baby, probably the first cousin that I had having a baby and that made her very special to me. As she became an adult her personality blossomed and she inherited her Mother's personality always making people laugh and she was definitely the most caring person. My sincere sympathy to David, Debbie, Georgie and their families. I know Patti had a lot of loved ones waiting for her on the other side. You will always be in my heart Patti, until we meet again.

It is so hard to try to understand I will never see her sweet face or smile again. I miss her saying Good Morning Sunshine, and I will especially miss listening to her whistle while she worked. She had a great whistle. My heart goes out you, David and Deb, she was truly precious!
