November 27, 1922 – November 17, 2018
Today we mourn the loss of our precious mother Patricia Lillian Ferguson. She was in her 96th year. She was an example of kindness and love, and Mom will live in our hearts forever. Pat was called to her heavenly home on the November 17th, 2018.
The family wishes to thank the many caregivers at Mustang Creek Estates, Keller, TX, for their never-ending love and dedication; she loved each and every one of them.
Service: The family will receive friends during a visitation on Tuesday, November 20th, 2018, from 2-4 PM at Foust Funeral Home in Grapevine, TX, followed by a funeral service also held at Foust. Her ashes will be interred at a later date next to her husband at the DFW National Cemetery, Dallas, TX.
Pat was born on November 27, 1922, in Yonkers, NY, to Richard and Lillian Reilly. A twin, she weighed only 2 ½ pounds. After high school, she worked for the International Paper Company in New York City. Shortly after World War II, she met the love of her life, William “Billy” Ferguson and was married on Thanksgiving Day, her birthday, November 27, 1947.
In 2002 she and her husband, Bill, moved to Texas to be near family. Pat loved Texas and the places she lived. Ever ready with a one-liner, she had an infectious smile and brought joy and laughter to every friend and stranger. She leaves behind a multitude of friends.
Her husband of 55 years, Bill Ferguson, her twin sister Jacqueline Meng, and sister-in-law Sr. Lorraine Ferguson preceded her in death. A joyous reunion is about to take place.

What a wonderful fun and nice lady. On visits to Texas, we couldn’t wait to enjoy spending time with our new friend and her family. The short times we spent with Pat were enjoyable, funny and of course informative, we will truly miss her.
And yes, she did bring joy and laughter each time we met with her. Rest in peace dear friend.

Dearest Patty, and family, My heart grieves with yours in this sad loss of your precious mother. I’m so happy I was able to meet her and what a sweetheart she was. I’ll never forget coming up to New York to visit and go to your baby shower. We all went into the city and as we were walking a lady walking near us got her purse snatched ! You did not hesitate a second and tore out running like a wild woman after the thief! We were yelling and calling after you, with our mouths open! It was later that we all got a laugh out of that, even if you didn’t catch him. Your mom was very kind, a real sweetheart, a great cook and had the most beautiful smile. I will always remember her sweetness. My love to you always, and may our Heavenly Father wrap you and family in His comfort and love, now and in the days a head. 🌹 Shara, Fred and Matthew
