Patsy was a beautiful soul. We’ve had so much fun with her over the past 5 years. She could light up a room with her beauty and smile. I remember while playing cards, if she would when a big hand, she’d scrape the chips towards her with both hands and say “Come on to Mama”. Our hearts and prayers go out to her family. She will sure be missed.

Patsy was one of the few people I met when I moved to Hendersonville. Patsy was a great neighbor, a good friend, and even tho our lives had taken different directions over the years, I still managed to run into her and have a nice chat. She was a great lady, always had a smile and a hug for me. My heartfelt sympathy goes out to the family at this difficult time.

Patsy’s picture exudes the Patsy I knew as a strong and compassinate woman with a great sense of humor. She will be sorely missed by Eddie, family and all who had the opportunity to know her. I remember many fine moments with Patsy and Eddie at the American Legion canteen. She not only shot a fine pool game but she was no slouch at shuffleboard either. Sending my sincere sympathy and prayers to Eddie and family.
