passed away due to natural causes on May 12, 2020.
She was with her son and his loving family in Florida,
with whom she had been living for a short time.
Patty Ann, as she was affectionately called, was born in

came back to Kentucky to raise their children. She
loved Bardstown and became a dedicated member of
the community and the Stephen Foster Music Club.

hostess. In addition to being a devoted wife and
mother, she was an active community chamber and
PTA member, wonderful singer, talented pianist,
voracious reader, dog lover, great friend, partner, and
faithful servant of the Lord.
