An earthly angel who will be greatly missed! My prayers for strength and comfort are being lifted for the entire family! Although Becky and I were high school friends, I had the great pleasure of working with Patty at Georgia Power in the ‘70’s. Everyday at lunch time we would climb up and down the stairwell at the Fickling Building at 577 Mulberry Street. And we did this in heels no less! We were trying so hard to keep our high school figures - lol! Patty was truly an angel and the pleasure of her company was so uplifting. I can only imagine her being welcomed into Heaven by our Savior and her family and the immense love being shared! Patty I’m sure has indeed left behind many great memories for her family and everyone she met during her journey here on earth. Rest In Peace sweet Patty❤️!

Patty will always be a part of some my best memories as a teenager. Whether it was going to the beach, going to baseball games, or spending the night at her grandparents house we always had fun. My prayers and sympathy to Wayne, her children , grandchildren, Becky and Mark.
