Patricia Ann Malloy, 81 years old, passed away on November 13, 2021, from natural causes. Patricia was preceded in death by her parents, James Hardin Fulkerson and Georgia C.

Patricia was born, November 15, 1939, in Owensboro, Kentucky. Patricia had a successful career as a Real Estate Investor. She met Don in Davy, FL on a horse farm. They fell in love and were married on July 4, 1957. Don served in the military and while they were stationed in Germany, they adopted Frank. They adopted Kim while Don was stationed in South Korea. The military is what brought Don and Patricia to Columbus, GA. Once Don retired, they decided to stay and finish raising their family here. They built their dream home in Ellerslie, GA. Together, they shared a passion for horses and had a dream to start a refuge for abused and neglected horses. Shortly after Don’s passing, a non-profit, Begin Again Farms was established in memory of him. It is an organization devoted to the care and rehabilitation of abused and needy horses.

She was a devoted daughter, wife, mother, and friend. Patricia loved life to the fullest and will be remembered by her incredible smile that lit up any room she came in as well as her gracious heart. She was a faithful member of Bethesda Baptist Church and committed volunteer to the food bank.

Mrs. Malloy aka friend is what I called you. Your smile was precious to me. Your laughter and sense of humor was comedy at it best. Your personality was welcoming and loving. We shared a lot great nights together whether it was my singing, dancing, watching football, the news, the world series and watching your favorite the ID channel. I am forever grateful for the past 7 months I spent with you. I will forever treasure the memories of our time spent together.
Rest in Heaven Friend.

I regret I never had the opportunity to meet Ms. Malloy, but I have been blessed by the impact of her life of love. Because she and her husband responded to the call to love children, not born of their genes, but born of their hearts, they've given this world an immeasurable gift. Not only through their example, but also through the amazing people they've raised.

I've had the privilege of knowing Frank (and Melissa) for several years and the impact of his parents' love is prevalent in all he does. He is an example of someone who lives life fully, as a son who has been chosen and dearly loved. Which is the most beautiful legacy a parent can leave.
