Patricia Ann Brewer Reeves

May 8, 1940April 3, 2019

Patricia Ann Reeves, 78, passed from this life Wednesday, April 3, 2019, at St. Dominic Hospital, Jackson.

Visitation will be 1:00-4:00pm, Sunday, April 7, 2019, at Baldwin-Lee Funeral Home in Pearl. Funeral services are 11:00am, Monday, April 8, 2019, at Pearson Baptist Church. The graveside service will be at 2:30pm at High Hill Baptist Church Cemetery in Neshoba County.

Patricia was born May 8, 1940, in Neshoba County, Mississippi, the daughter of the late Millard Brewer and Florine Hollingsworth Brewer. In 1956 she married the love of her life, Dolvis Waynne Reeves and they settled in Pearl to raise their family.

Patricia was a loving wife, mother, and Nana. She is survived by her beloved husband of 60 years, Waynne Reeves; son, Terry Reeves (Karen); daughter, Dawn Putnam (Timothy); and grandchildren, Meredith, Madison and Makenzie Putnam.

Patricia stayed home to care for her children while they were growing up, during which time she also cared for several other children. When her children left home she began her ministry outside the home with Eckerd Drug/CVS in Pearl. Patricia worked for 28 years. She retired on Saturday, March 30, 2019, just days prior to her passing.

Patricia was always thinking of and putting others before herself. She was genuinely interested in everyone’s life, and took time to listen. Patricia found joy in giving to others. One of the ways was through her cooking; the best chocolate chip cookies, cornflake candy, brownies, cake, and fried chicken.

Proverbs 31: 28-29: Her children rise up and bless her; Her husband also, and he praises her saying: “Many daughters have done nobly, but you excel them all.” NASB

I'm so sorry to hear about Patricia. She was a wonderful, loving babysitter for my daughter Christi when she was small. She was such a caring person, and always showed concern for others. She and her family meant a lot to us. I know she will be greatly missed by her family and friends.

My sincere sympathy,
Carolyn Smith

This lady will be missed on so many levels. Such a gracious and kind person I had the privilege to know. My heart breaks knowing she is gone from this life because she surely made our lives brighter for having known her, yet rejoicing that she is in the arms of her Lord. My deepest condolences to Mr. Wayne, their children and grandchildren.

My heartfelt condolences to Mr. Wayne, Terry, Dawn and their families. I am proud to be one of the 'other children' that Ms Patricia helped care for and raise. As a child I spent many happy days at her house with my friend Terry. As for her cooking, I have always measured fried chicken against hers, and few have come close to measuring up! Though lately I have had few chances to visit, she was often in my thoughts and memories. She will be deeply missed. Alan Williams, Gulfport, ms.

I’ve known Mrs. Pat my entire life & she has always been so sweet. Whenever I go into CVS she always makes sure to ask me about my mother. She was always working hard, never complained, and always had a smile. She will definitely be missed. Prayers for Mr. Wayne & the entire family. 🙏🙏❤️
