Who Our Pattie is

“Everybody knows she was wonderful, and loving.” But…she was my Mother, and also my best friend, and my biggest critic. She would not allow me to be a slacker. She didn’t treat me like I was disabled- she saw the world through my eyes. When not taking care of me, she took care of the neighborhood kids and animals. She made everyone feel important. She never asked for a dime. Nobody knew how much she gave. She’s the strongest person I know. She is missed!

Love always,


She was predeceased by her husband. Her Parents and her brother. She is survived by: three Biological Children; Christopher JP Clayton, OH, Kyla Butler, & Grand Mother of (Lil’ William) Butler, NC. Tonya Lockhart, South Carolina; Step Mother of four North Carolina & Ohio; Foster Mother of four, Ohio; Foster Grandmother of Many, Lifelong friend of many and a host of Step Grand Children, nieces, nephews and professional friends.
