Pat was an active member of the First Baptist Church in Fredericktown for over 50 years. She held many positions in the Church and was known for her outgoing personality and the fun twists she would put on social events, such as Spaghetti Dinner Fundraiser with a Chinese theme. Always creative and full of energy, she created fond memories with her experiences in Circle and Card Club. As youth leader at the Church, Pat was able to encompass her love of camping by taking the youth on Mission trips. One of those trips even needed to bypass the traffic caused by Woodstock in 1969.

Pat was also a seamstress and put her skills to good use making costumes for the many lip syncs the family participated in at the Fredericktown Tomato Show from 1994 to 2007. She was frequently cast as the “crazy lady” and always gave an over-the-top performance to the delight of the audience and her family. Pat’s sense of humor brightened lives and made guests in her home feel welcomed. She always made time for the events that mattered most to her family and could frequently be seen at games, concerts and recitals. She was the epitome of a social butterfly and embraced that quality.

Friends may call on Thursday from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Snyder Funeral Home in Fredericktown. A funeral service will be held on Friday at 11 a.m. at the First Baptist Church of Fredericktown with Rev. Timothy Mohon officiating. Burial will follow in Forest Cemetery in Fredericktown.

Memorial contributions in Pat’s name may be made to the First Baptist Church, 22 E. Sandusky Street, Fredericktown, Ohio 43019.

  • Marvin and all,

    I cherish the memories of our times together when I was younger. We had such fun camping. Pat had a great laugh. Praying for strength and peace. Although we know that she will be just as entertaining in Heaven as she was here on earth, the loss of her presence on Earth stings.
    I smile as I remember her asking to meet my husband at Mom’s birthday party. That was so sweet.
    Hugs to all,
    Deanna and Dallas Tackett

  • Dear Marv and Family —- We share in the loss of a special lady. So sorry that our condolences didn’t make it to you before the funeral. We posted them twice and for some reason, they didn’t make it on the site. Pat had such a great sense of humor and we remember with fondness the times we were together at squad functions and it was fun to meet you out and about, and Pat would have something to say to make us laugh. She leaves a beautiful legacy of a wonderful family and she will never be forgotten. Sending you all, our deepest sympathy and friendship. Susan and Dick Huggins/Fredericktown
