PATSY JANE HORNER 1935-2021

Surrounded by family on a sunny spring afternoon, Patsy Jane Horner, 85, peacefully passed away at her home. For 65 years, Patsy was a homemaker, enjoying raising three children with her husband, Lyle. She was of the Methodist faith. She is now reunited with the love of her life of 54 years, Ernest Lyle Horner, who went before her on March 17, 2011. With a passion for bowling, Patsy made many friends during her years participating at the former Bowl-Mor bowling alley, winning many tournaments, as well as once being the Kingsport City Bowling Champion. She was also a proud member of the Eagles Auxiliary 3141, serving as an officer for many years. She was especially proud of the community involvement and charities that this organization supported. Mom had a love and compassion for all people, and enjoyed taking the servant’s role in always caring for others. Left to remember Patsy with fond stories of love and laughter are her three children; Mike Horner (Julie); Donna Light (Andy); and Phil Horner (Melissa). Grandchildren Kris Wilson (Holly); Josh Horner (Heather); Kari Durnin (Travis); Alex Horner; Sarah Beth Horner. Great grandchildren; Emma, Cole, and Maddie Wilson; Gage Durnin; Maggie Horner and Luke Lett. Her sister, Nancy Worley; Donna Francisco Horner, mother of Josh and Kari; many nieces and nephews; and of course, Annie, her four-legged companion. Services for Patsy will be Monday, May 10th at 2:00pm with Reverend Rebecca Prenshaw, niece of Patsy, officiating; graveside services following at 3:00pm. Both services will be at East Lawn Memorial Park & Funeral Home. Fond memories and expressions of sympathy may be shared at www.eastlawnkingsport.com for the Horner family. May mom rest in peace, and rise in Glory.

I’m so sorry to hear of your Mother’s passing. I just learned of it. Patsy was always good to everyone I’ve never heard her say a harmful thing against anyone. She was always my Aunt even after Lyle passed. You are all very blessed to have had a mother and father like you did. My heart is sad for ea of you, Hope life brings us together soon. Mike, Donna, Phil you are often on my mind and always in my heart. Love and prayers

Mike, Donna & Phil,
I always felt like your mom was our family's beacon of shining light, always so encouraging, so optimistic, so full of life. I'm sure she had occasional bad days, but I certainly never witnessed one. So glad I got to see Patsy on my way to Oregon -- at that point, she hadn't changed a bit and we had a wonderful visit! My deepest sympathies go out to the entire family.

Pasty was a dear friend. I will miss our late night phone calls. We shared a lot together as we had our family's and Eagles 3141 Auxiliary. Only one Patsy and I will miss her dearly.

Mike, Donna, Phil and extended family, I am so sorry for the loss of your dear Mother. Patsy was very dear friend to my Mother and my family for many years. She was also a good neighbor. I fondly remember our family get togethers and picnics growing up. I also remember I could never beat her at ping pong. She will be missed. God Bless you during this difficult time. Jack and Teresa Patrick

I am heartbroken to learn of Mrs. Horner’s passing. She was such a lovely, kind and classy lady that always had a smile and a kind word for everyone. May God grant the families of Mike, Phil and Donna peace.
