Patricia D Owens, 65, of Crawfordville died Sunday (2/18) at Tallahassee Memorial Healthcare. She was born in New Albany, Indiana and grew up in Muncie, Indiana. She relocated to Florida in 1983 and has been a resident of the Crawfordville area for the last six years. Patricia followed in her parents footsteps and pursued a career in education. She attended and graduated Purdue University with a bachelors degree in Physical Education. Go Boilermakers!!! That is for all our Indiana University and Ball State family members! She started her career in Physical Education and was a Health and Drug educator at the time of her retirement. Pat always was focused on her family and she spent as much time as she could doing anything and everything with family. Her favorite memories were going to Disney, Sanibel, and always finding good deals!

She loved to find special things for others. She blessed so many by a lot of the things she did behind the scenes that only she and God knew about. Pat was also very strong in her faith and a mighty woman of prayer. Many would say: β€œCan you have Mama Pat Pray?” She was full of life and fearless no matter what she faced. She was vibrant, and had a calm spirit always knowing God would make a way. Though her body was weak, we have all confidence her spirit is soaring with the Lord! She leaves us with a strong legacy of love ,family, faith, and generosity that never will end.

Survivors include her husband: Charles R; children: Jennifer of Orlando, Jamie of Tallahassee, Robert Dooley of Royal Palm Beach, FL, Katie Mortenson of Mustang, OK; brothers: Stanley Jay of Ft Wayne, IN, Johnny Jay of St. Louis, MO; sister: Barbara Wilmoth of South Carolina; and grandchildren: Jocelyn Owens, Isla Dooley, Ireland Dooley, and Jayden Mortenson.

For friends who wish, the family suggests memorial donations to the 1st Pentecostal Church of Crawfordville,

Even with just the short times that we could have together, I always enjoyed spending time with Pat and Richard. They truly are amazing people. I remember the first time we met at the house, the next morning Richard tried to fatten me up with bacon and donuts. Ha. Good times. I really miss Pat I know she is having a good ole time in Heaven.

I love you Mom! I am so honored that I was able to be there with you as you went to be with the Lord! What a miraculous moment to be apart of! I could tangibly feel the presence and peace of God in the room, and you were not afraid! Thank you for being my number one fan always, for teaching me to obey God even when it was hard. Thank you for teaching me how to pray, and put on the Full Armor of God! Thank you for teaching me how to use the potty- I owe you everything just on that one thing alone. Thank you for loving me, showing me love through your actions, and words. Thank you for teaching me the value of hard work, and to be BOLD! Thank you for being dynamic in everything you did! Thank you for teaching me to love the Beatles, The Rolling Stones, MoTown and Fleetwood Mac! People are amazed when I know the words- I say yep my mama taught me that! Thank you for singing and dancing at church! Thank you for BEING MY MOM- I am beyond grateful God chose you for that! I will always think of you and hold you in my heart!

The Jay family has been a big part of my life since I was coached by Pat's father. Pat was always helping others, full of energy and was a leader. May she rest in peace with those gone before her.

Pat was so positive, uplifting, kind and good to me. Your mom was a special lady and I'm glad to have gotten to know her. May she rest in heaven without pain or discomfort. Till we meet again!
