“Patty” was born on September 12, 1926 in Tampa, Florida to Claire and Frank Folsom. Raised in Tampa, she graduated from Plant High School in 1944. She attended Florida State College for Women where she was a member of the Kappa Delta Sorority. She returned to Tampa and married her husband J.H. Williams, Jr in 1946. She was involved in many activities but most of her energy was centered around her children. She volunteered at Tampa General Hospital for a number of years as a “pink lady”. She was also active in the Junior League of Tampa, the H.B. Plant Museum Society, the Chiselers, and the Kappa Delta Sorority Alumnae Association.
Patty was a member of Palma Ceia Presbyterian Church, the Tampa Yacht and Country Club and Palma Ceia Golf and Country Club. Patty loved people. She loved traveling, playing tennis and bridge with her friends but most of all, she enjoyed spending time with her ever-growing family.
Patty will be buried at Myrtle Hill Memorial Park next to her husband and father. A private family service will follow. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that any contributions be made to Palma Ceia Presbyterian Church, Mary Lee’s House, or a charity of your choice. The family would like to express their deep appreciation to Lifepath Hospice as well as her devoted caregivers, Sharon Hernandez, Delia Coleman, Mildred Lynn, Alanda Mitchell, and Sonya Williams.

To Hulon, Brenda, Cathy and your families,
Our deepest sympathy for the loss of your Mother. She was such a kind and sweet lady. I enjoyed knowing her and working with her over the years. She is in a much better place now and reunited with her beloved J.H. May you all be comforted by your memories of her and by the peace that only Christ can provide.

With sympathy to Patricia's family...
We've never met but we have a family connection. Patricia was a cousin through my mom's side of the family. Patricia's grandfather was my great Uncle Thomas Cason. My grandfather was his brother Green Franklin. He passed before I was born. however Uncle Tom was still around so when My mom was in the area we would stop to visit him at his house on Moody Ave. I do remember him well. My family members are my husband Joe, daughter and son- in- law, Kim and Rich Mendoza and grandson Matthew.
May these words touch your heart as you say goodbye to your loved one.
You have left this world of sorrow, and are free from pain and harm, and now rest in peace and comfort, in the blessed Savior's arms.
