Patsy Ann (Chafin) Deel, 61, of Delaware went home to be with the Lord Saturday evening February 23, 2013 at the Arbors at Delaware while surrounded by her loving family and friends.

She was born March 31, 1951 in Lebanon, Virginia to Robert and Mae (Clark) Chafin.

She attended Hayes High School and worked for many years at Murray Printing in Massachusetts and later at Sunray Stove in Delaware. On September 29, 1973, she was united in marriage to Howard G. Deel and to this union was born a son Chad Lee Deel. Those who knew and loved Patsy will remember her for always having the coffee ready for anyone who stopped by. She loved having family and friends gather to eat, talk, and have fun. She never met a stranger and loved everyone and always told you she loved you. She attended Lake Street Church of God and enjoyed greeting everyone as they came by her pew in church. Even in her illness, she was also a great prayer warrior in praying for others.
