I am honored and blessed to have known my neighbor and friend Patsy. She was one of the first people my husband and I met when we moved to Whitesboro 20 years ago. She was a friendly face we met at the bank while setting up a new account. Shortly afterwards, I realized she lived across the street and we became friends. She was truly a blessing in my life and I will miss her.
Patsy was a great coworker but an even better friend. I have wonderful memories of our meals and adventures together. She was one of the most generous people I have ever met- I will miss her friendship deeply. RIP Patsy-
Patsy was one of the sweetest and most generous ladies I have ever met. She was so very proud of her family. May you take comfort in knowing she touched so many lives in this world and leaves behind a legacy of love.
She was the sweetest lady. I sure will miss her. My prayers are with her family.
Patsy was a very sweet lady. We are so sorry for your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
Patsy was such a wonderful friend and co worker. She had a way with making conversations about you and never about her. She was one of a kind and I will truly miss her. I’m sad for her family and friends that will miss this spunky lady but I’m rejoicing that she is with her beloved Watson once again.
We just loved Patsy, our friend and neighbor. She was always happy and so very kind. When one thinks of a truly beautiful and classy lady, her face appears.
Blessings to all who loved her.
All the nurses at Whitesboro Pilot Point HH loved Patsy. She was such a sweet soul! So sorry for your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.
I worked with Patsy many years ago at the bank and found her to be such a sweet lady. I was able to keep up with her through a mutual friend that cared for Patsy through the years. My deepest sympathy to the family and just knowing she is pain free is comforting.
I will forever miss Aunt Patsy! She was always the sweetest person. Her and Uncle Watson have always been special people in my heart!
We had the pleasure of knowing Patsy and Watson through our friendship with Mary and Reuben Brooks. Patsy was so delightful. Grateful for the reality of Heaven and that we will meet again in the presence of our Savior Jesus Christ! Bob and Cindy Liverman
Patsy was a very good friend and co-worker. Patsy and Watson were the first people Dan and I met when we moved to Whitesboro in 1969 for Dan’s job teaching at the high school. Our daughter Terri just loved “Pappy and Watty” as she called them. You will be missed my friend.
Patsy, your son Randy, will always be my adopted brother. I know it was presumptive until I met with you directly. I’m so happy I had that opportunity and to exchange humor that we both knew was from a loving and soulful place. You are a leader and will always be. You are always here, as well as in heaven with your husband. You both did well in Randy and he is so fortunate to have followed your footsteps with Jenny and their shared children and grandchildren. Extensions of the clan.
I knew Patsy as a customer of Whitesboro Cleaners where I was manager. She always had a smile for me! Sometimes she would need me to turn up the sleeves of a jacket she had purchased. Always happy to help her! She will be missed!
