Patsy often spoke fondly of working for Dr. BC Muthappa in Clarksville, TX and considered he and his family, Rani, Deepak, and Divya her extended family for years. Patsy’s heart and soul was her family, her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. You could not be in her presence and not feel the love she had for her family. She had a special way of making kids feel appreciated, and cherished, it was her gift. One of her favorite pastimes was baking and cooking for others. She adored showing up unexpected with cakes she delivered to friends, family, and strangers. Her eagerness for seeking new recipes to share was her passion. She loved her church, golf and playing slots, but most of all she loved the people in her life and her best friend, “Ladybug”. Her absence will be felt by many, grieved by uncounted, for she touched the hearts of all that knew her.
