  • Hugs and Prayers to Tonya and family. My heart goes out to you during this sad time. Fly high sweet angel! R.I.P.

  • What a shock to see this!! We just saw her in Mansfield last weekend and spoke to her. We have known Patti since grade school. She was known to be a TOUGH tomboy that NO ONE messed with, after graduation I ran into her and she said, ” I can’t figure out why everyone was so afraid of me.” Who knew she really had such a SOFT heart for people. What a great friend and classmate. Thinking of all of you .

  • I first met Patti at the age of 15 years old. She was very outspoken and wasn’t afraid to tell me I was screwing up. ( and I was & did) . Last few years every time I seen her she told me how proud she was of me and gave big hugs. Thank you Patti for fueling my future with your voice in my head . Don’t screw it up kid ( I’m proud of you!!)
    Patti Williams made a difference in me!!

  • To Tonya and the family.
    Two things We could always count on when it came to your Mom. Lively conversation and fierce loyalty. She sure had a big heart full of love. We will miss our friend. Our utmost sympathy to you and everyone.

    Mike and Jean Bodkins.

  • Many memories of my younger years include Patti and Tonya. I was a teenager when I became a mom, and Patti always welcomed us into her home… when others were not as accepting. That speaks volumes as to the kind of person Patti was. She was always a mother first, and a friend second. If all parents loved their children as much as Patti loved Tonya, the world would be a better place. What a blessing for Patti to leave this Earth knowing that her best friend has heard the sound of her heartbeat from the inside. Someone once said, Love Deep and Grieve Deeper… I am so sorry for your loss Tonya.

  • You will be so dearly missed you were like a mom to me love you always RIP the beautiful angel you are

  • Tonya my deepest sympathy to you and your family Patti will be missed she was a good lady and friend to many

  • I had just got to talk to Patti at the Moose she was a wonderful woman her and I hit it off the day we started to talk. She will be deeply missed by a lot of people as well myself. Gods speed Patti no more worries or struggles. I am going to miss your presence in my life. May God Bless you and help your family get through the hard times ahead my prayers are for them.

  • I am so sorry, Tonya!! Patty was always such a happy presence to be around. She had the ability to make you laugh when you really didn’t want to. I’ll remember her always n her words of wisdom. Heaven gained one great lady that will be missed by so many. Prayers to you Tonya.

  • Thinking of the Summer of 1988 you were a good friend to me. I was just a crazy kid that was welcomed by you. Rest In Peace. I’m thinking of all of those who loved you my prayers are with them today and always.

  • My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this very sad time. Patti was a strong woman with a very caring and compassionate heart. She had many friends and was well loved. Patti’s family was the center of her world and she loved you all dearly.

    I’m so sorry for you’re loss.

  • Tonya I am so sorry for your tremendous loss. Your mother was one of the best people that I have ever had the privilege of knowing. I met her in junior high school and loved her from the second day of meeting her (ask Connie why it wasn’t the first day you will get a kick out of that story) she always had a smile and warm hug for me. Her passing will leave a huge void in this world. I don’t understand how her heart could fail her when it held so many of us up. She was one of a kind . Her forever friend “Sam”

    Patti was a friend for a long time, how and when it happened I do not know. She always stopped to say “Hi” if I was working in the yard.
