Patricia M. Clover
May 31, 1932 – July 7, 2018
Patricia Anne Meek Clover, 86, of Greencastle was called to her Heavenly Home July 7, 2018.
Pat was born in Greencastle, Indiana on May 31, 1932 the only child of Estill and Merle Broadstreet Meek. Patty, as she was lovingly called by her parents, grew to adulthood in Cloverdale, Indiana, where she spent her happy childhood and was graduated from Cloverdale High School with the Class of 1950. Her further education resulted in receiving a Secretarial Degree from Indiana Business College in Indianapolis. Her extended secretarial career spanned some 50 years in the fields of Legal and Medical pursuits. At the urging of dear friends, Dr. James and Judy Johnson, she was awarded her Licensed Practical Nursing Degree from Ivy Tech Community College at the age of 64. Her Husband, Robert, was so supportive and probably enjoyed her receiving of this Degree as much as Pat did. The awarding of her LPN Degree brought her much pleasure and pride throughout the remainder of her life.
Pat is survived by her loving Husband of 57 years, Robert and their one Daughter, Deborah Susan (James) Hayes of Mukwonago, WI, family and friends.
Pat was preceded in death by her loving parents and many dear friends with whom her life was so enriched and blessed.
Her church, Gobin Memorial United Methodist, was very dear to her heart and she spent many, many fulfilling hours in the loving service of her Lord and Master, Jesus Christ. She loved His Church and her many friends and, during the declining days of her life, was looking forward to her Heavenly Home and her reunion with those she had loved whom had gone on before. Pat loved her Church and tried daily to serve God in every way she could. She also held an “over 55 year” membership in the Order of the Eastern Star, Chapter #255, where she was a Past Worthy Matron and for many years served as Chaplain, which she said she probably enjoyed “the most of all.” Another was a Member of Gamma Phi Chapter, Kappa Delta Phi Sorority, where she held offices until taking an inactive status when her Husband, Robert, began to have failing health and she chose to spend as much time as possible with him.
Her Family chose to have calling hours from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM at the Gobin Memorial United Methodist Church on Thursday, July 12, 2018 with an Order of Eastern Star Service at12:45 PM.
Funeral services will be held at 1:00 PM on Thursday at the church with interment to follow at the Forest Hill Cemetery.
She requested her last message to be “Do not stand at my grave and weep. I am not there, I do not sleep. Do not stand at my grave and cry. I am not there, I did not die. ‘”Memories and expressions of sympathy may be shared with the family c/o www.BittlesandHurt.com

Debbie, I am so sorry for your loss...I just found out. I loved your Mom. She was always smiling and helpful in Jobs Daughters when we had to learn our new positions. Belated prayers for you and your family!

I just learned from my Mom that your Mom has passed away. I am so sorry for your loss. Pat was one of the most joyful and exuberant people I've ever met. I know my Mom took endless pleasure from their decades-long friendship. She was a delight and her life brightened so many others.

Bob and Debbie, I am sorry for your loss. I last saw Pat when I was in town for Kaye's memorial service. She and Kaye went back a lot of years.

We have known Pat since the 60s in Eastern Star and Job’s Daughters. We have shared many meetings, dinners, lunches and just visiting. Bill loved to talk to Pat about early days in Cloverdale. We shared doctor appointments and we took her to her appointments. Always had lunch afterwards. I will miss our visits and her words of wisdom. She was a wonderful lady.
