Patricia Ann Neale-Ford was born on Friday, September 15th, 1950 in Westville, OK, the daughter of Keith and Fern (Stilwell) Neale. She attended school and then obtained her Bachelor’s Degree from NSU in Education. She was employed as a Librarian for the Eastern Oklahoma District Library System. She was a retired Ordained Minister for the Assemblies of God, and there was nothing that meant more to Patricia than evangelizing the love of God to everyone that heard her voice. She dedicated her life to serving God at the age of 13 and preached of his love and forgiveness for 58 years. She was a pianist, and wrote music including one hymn that was published. Those who had needs knew that they had a friend in Patricia. She would see that the hungry had food, those who had no clothes were warm, and those who needed prayer had the best prayer warrior on their side. She loved people and would help anyone, with anything that was hers to give. She was kind, generous, loving, and, above all, had a servant’s heart. She implemented community programs for people so they could read books. She could play just about any instrument she got her hands on, and always to the glory of God. What little spare time she had was reserved for reading, being outdoors, and fishing and bird watching. Her smile and happy heart was because of her love for her family that she adored. Any opportunities she had to be with her children, grandchildren and family were very happy for Patricia. She married John Ford on May 9th, 2009 at the Emmanuel Pentecostal Holiness Church in Braggs. They were devoted to one another and God. Together, they enjoyed ten years of love, memories, and raising her cattle she was so fond of. The Lord called this good and faithful servant home from her labors on Saturday, January 5th, 2019 in Muskogee, OK. She was 68 years old. She will be greatly missed but had laid a firm foundation for those she loved. She is preceded in death by her mother and father, and her grandparents: William and Bertha Neale and Doss and Opal Stilwell. Her memory is cherished by her husband, John of the home in Braggs, and her son, Arthur Gordon and wife Keisha of Oklahoma City, stepdaughter Judy Taylor of Braggs, and stepson, Guy Brown of Ft. Gibson, OK. She leaves two brothers, Keith Neale and wife Betty of Oklahoma City and Darrell Neale and wife Chevy of Stilwell, OK. She lives on in her three grandchildren, Tammy Brassfield and husband Chris of Ft. Gibson, Shane Dause and wife Brooke of Braggs, OK, and Rusty Dause and wife Mindy also of Braggs. There are ten great-grandchildren, Levi Dause, Jett Brassfield, Grant Dause, Chase Dause, Canyon Miller, Carter Miller-Dause, Gavin Dause, Conner Miller-Dause, John Brassfield, and Hope Dause, as well as one aunt who was like a sister, Mary Stilwell of Stilwell, OK, one cousin, Gregg Stilwell also of Stilwell, OK, as well as many church family and a host of friends and loved ones too numerous to mention.

Sister Pat was a godly, wonderful woman. We enjoyed many great conversations and ministry times together. I appreciated her support and friendship. Sister Pat will be remembered for her voice, her compassion, her love for people and her anointed preaching. Michelle and I loved and appreciated her. Our prayers are with the family - John, Arthur and Keisha. Though we will be unable to attend the funeral service in person, our thoughts will be with you all. Blessings.

I loved Pat dearly. She was truly a woman of God who helped me in my journey. She was one talented piano player & would accompany me any time I ever needed her. She also gave me the courage I needed to open for the legendary Dottie Rambo! When I looked out over the congregation that night she was all smiles when I finally spotted her. I can say that she was always happy to see you, was always so warm & gave a great hug. I was so shocked to learn of her passing & I am heartbroken I cannot attend the service. I suppose "I'll see her back at the house" one of these days. My sincerest love & condolences to all of you.

It was a pleasure to work with Pat at the Eastern Oklahoma District Library System. She was missed after she left to continue to follow God's path for her. I remember her laughter and her willingness to listen and help others.
