Pat loved God and her family, and just as she always looked forward to the next family outing, she also looked forward to a Heavenly reunion with Jesus and her Lord.
A graduate of Austin High School, Class of 1952, she attended the University of Houston, majoring in education.
In August 1956, she and Tom were married at Broadway Baptist Church in Houston. She was a devoted wife and mother, one who always placed family priorities before hers. She was a long-time member and actively involved in the life of Sugar Creek Baptist Church.
She loved her church as a place to worship, and to enjoy a variety of activities with her many friends in the Seniors Department.
Honorary pallbearers include nephews Tim Stewart, Paul Stewart, Terry Stewart, Ben Thomas, Randy Thomas, J.R. Thomas, Michael Thomas and “adopted son,” Brian Watson.
