Patricia M. Biles

March 21, 1939June 13, 2012

Patricia Marie Keirnan Biles, 73, passed away peacefully on June 13, 2012 in the arms of her husband of 54 years, Louis Alexander Biles. She was born in Cleveland, Ohio, but lived nearly her entire life in Houston, Texas. She graduated from St. Agnes Academy in 1957 and attended St. Thomas University.

She dedicated her life to her husband and eight children; Andrew Biles, James Biles, Patricia Michalek, Christine Hignett, Sarah McMeans, Joseph Biles, Mary Wong, Michael Biles, and treated each of their spouses as one of her own. Patti also loved and cherished her 26 grandchildren, and five great-grandchildren.

She was the beloved daughter of James and Ann Keirnan and the faithful big sister of James Keirnan, Lexie Ofczarzak, Kathleen Keirnan, Maggie Farrar, Mike Keirnan, Mary Keirnan and Casey Keirnan.

Patti left behind a wealth of friends, neighbors and colleagues whom she loved very much, particularly her life long friend, Sheila O’Sullivan.

Patti was a devout Catholic and lived her life devoted to Jesus Christ. She has been an active parishioner at St. Francis de Sales Church for over 45 years. She was very proud to have educated her children in Catholic schools and made many sacrifices to do so.

She was the matriarch of a large and loving family. She was loved and admired by everyone in her life. Mom, you will be missed more than words can convey.

The Rosary and visitation will be at St. Francis de Sales Catholic Church, 8200 Roos, Houston, Texas 77036, Friday, June 15 from 6:00 pm – 8:30 pm. The funeral services, also at St. Francis, will be Saturday, June 16 at 11:00 am.
