Services for Patricia “Pat” Ann Parten of Jackson were held Thursday, May 9, 2019, at Eu-bank Funeral Home in Canton with Bro. Steve Glosup officiating. Pat went home to be with the Lord on May 6, 2019.
She was born September 11, 1942, in Lubbock to Alfred and Pauline Lee.
The first thing Pat would tell you is that she wasn’t expected to live a full week and God blessed her with 76 wonderful years.
She accepted Jesus as her Savior when she was 12 years old and was baptized at Mt. Lebanon Church Camp.
She loved her family and treasured being a mom but her greatest joy was becoming a grandmother.
She loved to read, fish, sew, listen to her music, watch Hallmark movies and root on the Texas Rangers. She was an amazing cook and her fresh apple cake was her signature bake. Most of all, she enjoyed reading her Bible and spending time with the Lord.
She was preceded in death by her late husband, Melvin Parten; father, Alfred Lee; mother, Pauline Lee; sisters, Katie Lee, Joella Sisk and Betty Faye Wright; and brothers, Bobby Lee and Freddy Lee.
She is survived by her companion of 22 years, David Matthews; son, Earnie Parten and wife, Chrissy, of West Chester, Ohio; daughter, Aleesa Lewis and husband, Richard; grandson, Matthew of Baytown; brother-in-law, Ronald Wright of North Richland Hills; sister-in-law, Betty Lee of Denton; along with numerous nieces and nephews; and was mother and grandmother to many, many more.
Interment followed at Haven of Memories in Canton.
