    Both Pat and Walter were dear friends. We are sad that we have lost both of them but now they are together. They were both happy to move to Virginia and to be with the family who has taken such loving care of them. Rest assured that you all were angels of mercy to them. May God bless you and help you through your grief and sorrow.

  3. Melaney (Patton) Uehlin says:

    Patsy was my favorite aunt, and she used to call herself that when she’d call me on the phone. She especially loved all of her nieces and nephews, since she had no children of her own. When I was a young girl, she would invite me to stay at her double wide trailer in Maryland. She drove a white Charger, which to me looked like a sports car. She let my cousins and I lay on our backs in the back of her car at night, so we could look through the sloping glass window at the city lights. She took my cousins Tammy and Debbie and I to see David Cassidy, a teen idol singer, in concert. When I graduated from college, she drove all the way to Colorado to see me graduate. Later she hosted my entire family during visits to the east coast. She would pick us up on the end of the red line metro and take us to her house.

    I was able to visit with Aunt Pat in August for a few days. We had a lovely time together. I just visited with her on the phone last week while walking my dogs at a park in Tacoma. My daughter called and interrupted our conversation, and unfortunately I never called her back. I am sad about that.

    I will miss Aunt Pat. I have lost both of my parents, and she was like a mother to me.

    I was saddened when I heard the news that the generous heart of my dear Aunt Patsy’s had stopped beating. I called and spoke with her frequently, and had made a mental note to call her just the day before she passed away. Aunt Patsy was probably my favorite aunt. Over the years she visited our family no matter where we living. Her older brother, SMSGT Fred H. Patton USAF, my father, was stationed on all three coasts and in Japan and Germany. Patsy came a visited us at least once in every location we were stationed, bringing a little bit of Virginia and extended family with her. She came to Okinawa in 1968, probably the longest trip ever to babysit. She stayed several weeks to look after us so my parents could go to Hong Kong. I recall the car my dad fixed up had painted an gave her for her graduation from nursing school. I don’t recall the make, I believe it was a Ford, but it was robin egg blue. The look on her face was priceless. She returned the favor when she gave me her 72 Dodge Charger when I graduated from Old Dominion with my BS degree. I drove it for years afterward. I recall the cold November mornings, when we butchered hogs, Aunt Patsy was always in the thick of it rendering lard, cooking scrapple, and making sausage. Aunt Patsy spent her life in the service of others, I see a bit of Aunt Pat in my daughter Alexandra, also a nurse. She has the same selfless traits as her Great Aunt Patsy. Aunt Patsy has now become part of the Patton family lore. She will be missed, her always smiling face, her raucaus laugh and her boundless generosity. Sleep well Aunt Pat. Love, your nephew, Keith

    I was very saddened to get a late night call from My Mom on Thursday night that My Step Fathers Sister (My Aunt Patsy) had passed. I always thought she was a very loving, kind hearted lady & I loved being around her or talking to her……always upbeat & smiling. I remember spending a lot of time at the Patton Home (Aunt Patsy’s Home) when My Grandparents lived there & Aunt Patsy would come to visit, always had a lot of laughs & fun when she was around. I will never forget as a young girl when she invited my cousins Melaney, Tammy & I to her home in Germantown, Md. & took us to a David Cassidy concert at the Meriweather Post Pavilion…..we had a blast!!! Always loved her as one of my favorite Aunts & she will be missed Greatly! Now she is resting peacefully with The Patton Family in Heaven. Aunt Patsy you will never be forgotten by those of us that loved you & thought you were one amazing lady! Fly High With the Angels in Heaven……..Hugs & Love You Always & Forever, Debbie

    We all have memories that last a lifetime. These precious snap shots and movies of the mind seem to travel with us through our own personal existence and ultimately catalogue the moments that most hold dearest. Several such memories of Aunt Patsy are gingerly stored in my being. I will always remember her kindness and loving smile. When I was around her I felt that I was truly a part of the Patton family. You will be missed and your memory will live on with those you touched.

  7. Alexandra Patton says:

    The visits I had with aunt Patsy were few and far between, and even though I was very young, I always remember how kind she was. She always took the time to sit down and ask Cody and me how we were doing and always showed us so much love. After I heard of her passing, I dreamt of her being greeted by her late husband Walter at the gates of Heaven and I truly believe it was a joyous reunion. My heart hurts for everyone else missing her but I’m overcome with joy that she is with her husband and Heavenly Father.

    I love you Aunt Patsy and I hope I can show even a fraction of the love you did while you were on this earth.
