Before she retired, Patsy was employed with Johnson & Johnson’s Ethicon for over 30 years. She was also a member at large with Epsilon Sigma Alpha, a service organization which she enjoyed greatly with her dear friend Marynell Lane. Together they raised money for great causes such as St. Jude’s Hospital. Affectionately known as “Cookie” to her family and friends they also knew Patsy as a soft spoken, kind, loving, and a truly amazing person. She was a strong woman who was a true fighter surviving both breast and lung cancer. Patsy cared deeply for her family and friends and always gave to others in need.
