Pat was a long-time resident of Haughton, Louisiana where she has lived since 1962. Prior to living in Haughton, she lived in Vivian, LA. In her early years, she was primarily a homemaker, but later worked for the Bossier Parish School Board as a school bus driver and retired after many years. She also worked for Home Interiors, Inc. as a sales representative. After retirement from the school board, she continued to work. At the time of her death, Pat was still employed in the Advising Center at Bossier Parish Community College.
Pat loved to travel, and enjoyed many trips with her children and grandchildren. She loved to play the piano for her church, she loved her work family at BPCC, and loved her family with all her heart. She was nurturing, caring, and a wonderful mother, grandma, sister, aunt, and friend to all. She accepted Christ as her Savior as a young girl and began playing the piano for her church in Trees, LA at the tender age of 11. After moving to Haughton, she began attending First Baptist Church of Princeton and became their pianist almost immediately. She played the piano for the church until death. She was loved by all that knew her and her sweet, sweet spirit will be missed by all.
