Pattie Tysinger Linton
September 7, 1934 – January 3, 2020
Pattie Tysinger Linton went home to be in the presence of God in the early morning of Friday, January 3, 2020. Pattie was born on September 7, 1934 in Marion, North Carolina to James and Rosemary Tysinger. She attended and graduated from Houghton College in Houghton, New York where she met her beloved, David and they married on August 17, 1957. They raised two children, Greg and Denise. Pattie and David lived in Miami, Florida until they retired and were snowbirds between Gladevalley, North Carolina and Brooksville, Florida.
Pattie was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, cousin, friend and school teacher. But the most important role that she played was a loving servant for God.
Pattie had a special relationship with her Heavenly Father and followed His call to be a missionary alongside her husband David, in Haiti and Zambia, Africa. She was involved with many organizations to help others and share the love of Jesus. Those who loved her lost so much at her passing, yet gained so much from her living.
Pattie is preceded in death by her parents James and Rosemary Tysinger, her sisters Doris Anne Essepian, Margaret Ross and Mary Stephens. She is survived by her husband of 62 years, David Linton, her son Gregory Linton, daughter Denise Linton, grandsons Steven Linton, Hunter Allen and Christian Linton, sister Faith Lamphier, and brothers James (Bud) Tysinger and John Reed Tysinger, along with many nieces, nephews and friends.
Services will be held at Bunch-Johnson of Statesville, NC on Saturday, January 25, 2020 from 11am-1pm.
