Patsy Ailene Wall Tilley

June 23, 1938March 6, 2021

A true angel on earth gained her heavenly wings. Pat Tilley died after a brief but courageous battle with cancer.

Pat leaves behind her daughter Kim Brooks (Gene) of Burlington, son Chris Tilley (Trish) of Fuquay-Varina, niece Cindy McPherson (Eddie) of Liberty, great-niece Brittni Whitesell (Justin) of Burlington; grandchildren Rian Brooks and Morgan Brooks of Burlington, and Hannah Tilley and Matthew Tilley of Fuquay-Varina; and brother, Jimmie Neal Wall. She also leaves behind many other friends and family members who were dear to her, especially her church family and her coworkers from Rubbermill in Liberty, NC.

She was preceded in death by her sister, Peggy Wall Lowe and brothers, Wilbur Gray Wall and Bobby Ray Wall.

As Pat had arranged to donate her body to assist the Wake Forest School of Medicine in research to help others, there will be no services.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that a donation of non-perishable items be made in memory of Pat to Liberty Village Apartments to assist seniors in need or to a local food pantry of your choice.

Where do I start? I first met Mrs Pat when I started working at RubberMill. When we first met she instantly took me under her wing and taught all she knew! Well it didn't work because I could not begin to be like Mrs Pat. She was like no other, she was petite but she kept all those men at RubberMill in line!
She was thoughtful, kind, sweet, comfortable to be around when she was training me and just instant friendship!
She was faithful to RubberMill and hardworking too, I don't even think she took vacation days while I was there.
Oh how generous she was and that doesn't even do her justice just to call her generous, she would give anyone her clothes off her back if they needed it.
Mrs Pat, you are so missed and so missed when you retired that no one could ever fill your shoes!
I love you and thank you for being my friend! Anita

If RubberMill ever had a matriarch, it would be Ms. Pat. If you called RubberMill anytime from 2007 until her retirement last year, you probably spoke to Ms. Pat. Although she was hired for her accounting skills, she quickly became an even more valuable asset as she answered phones and developed relationships with customers and suppliers alike. She took a personal interest in everyone that called. She was so beloved by the employees at RubberMill that when she decided that she could no longer drive, a team of RubberMill employees made arrangements to pick her up and take her home from work each day. She never forgot a birthday and always kept us supplied with our favorite treats. When she was not working, she was giving back to her community and church.
We, at RubberMill, like so many others in this community, were so lucky to have Ms. Pat in our lives.

Miss Pat was one of the most caring and giving person that I know. A heart of gold! She always made sure Liberty Village had food and when we had the toilet paper shortage she was there to help. She gave to toys for tots among several other charities. She is a beautiful lady and will be greatly missed. I personally will never forget this remarkable, loving lady. Praying for her wonderful family. With much love, Tim
