In accordance with Patty’s wishes, cremation has taken place with the assistance of Billings Funeral Home and Cremation Services of Elkhart.
Patricia was a loving and devout Christian lady whose spirituality and virtue were reflected in those she loved the most. She was a consummate champion to her children and grandchildren, and lavished them with her love, kindness, caring and strength. She had a heart as big as all of outdoors, and she enjoyed being able to volunteer within her community to help out with worthy causes that stood up for the good of all humanity. She especially loved volunteering and being an advocate at the local YWCA because, as a youth, she benefitted from the services of the YWCA as well.
Family and friends are encouraged to browse the funeral home’s website, where one can share the obituary, leave condolences for the family, order flowers, get directions and more. Memorial donations in Patty’s memory may be given to the Elkhart YM/YWCA.
