Patsy started her career at Community State Bank at just 20 years old and proudly continued her career until 2018 when she retired at Whitney Hancock Bank.

Family was everything to her, especially her grandchildren. You could always find her in the bleachers at every sports game cheering on her grandchildren. Patsy spent her retirement watching her grandbaby Baylor. She also enjoyed cooking and tending to her flowers in her garden. Patsy was a wonderful wife, mother, and grandmother, that will be deeply missed by all who knew her.
