Patsy Phillips

Patsy Phillips Patsy Phillips departed from this earthly garden on January 29, 2019. She was born October 5, 1941 to Herman and Ruth Carlisle in Uvalde, Texas.
Patsy and her husband Jerry were married 58 years, living the past 42 in Athens. Her immediate family survivors include husband, son Jason and daughter-in-law Elizabeth, daughter Phillicia and son-in-law Layne, two granddaughters, two great grandchildren, and a sister Tillie.
Patsy was first and foremost a loving wife and mother, she and Jerry shared a passion for the outdoors including a love of nature, country rides and fishing. She enjoyed country western music, dancing and wearing clothes with western bling. Her attire was sometimes compared with the style of Dale Evans (also from Uvalde).
Patsy attended three colleges: Southwest Texas Regional, East Texas State University, and Trinity Valley Community College where she received her real estate license. Most of her career years were in bookkeeping, banking and taxes.
She had a particular interest in Native American culture. As a creative person she mastered the Native American method of hand building pottery. Over the years she became friends with several Cherokee pottery makers, including artist Anna Mitchell of Tahlequah, Oklahoma.
Patsy was a happy upbeat lady who will be missed by her many friends.
A public celebration of her life will be held Saturday, February 9, 1:00 p.m. at the Hannigan Smith Funeral Home, in Athens, Texas.

The love I saw between you and Patsy reminded me a lot of what Mary and I had for 52 years. I watched her die inch by inch for 15 years. As hard as that was, losing your love suddenly has to be worse. It is hard. I had to get away from this lonesome house and work hard to get it off my mind. A friend told me that when I had about lost it. From a friend who has been there, get away from that empty house when you feel it overwhelming. You are in my prayers and thoughts. Call me when you need someone to talk to or go see. 903-675-7496, Vernon
