Patricia was born February 23, 1947, in Hueysville, Kentucky. She passed away January 9, 2018 at her home. Patricia was a loving mother and retired from Diebold after 30 years of employment. Most people there remember her as a very hard worker and a loyal friend. Patricia always had a passion for living on Buckeye Lake. In 1991, she had her dream come true and she bought a house on Copper Penny Channel in Thornport. Patricia was known as one to give the shirt off of her back for anyone in need. She loved talking to her sister Oma on the phone every day and loved her miniature Australian Shepherd, her best bud. Her hobbies included horseback riding, camping, fishing, boating, playing computer games and talking with family.
She is survived by her daughter, Rhonda “Rhoda” Stevens of Thornville; brother, Dan (Tana) Ginn of Pataskala; sisters, Oma Bratcher of Lake Wales, Florida, Glenda (Jerry) Turrietta of Anaheim, California, Vanessa (Teddy) Stevenson Schneider of Florence, Kentucky, Kimberly (Wayne Perry) Stevenson Labare of Newark and Lynnette (Brian) Trent of Greenville; many nieces and nephews; and her beloved Mini Aussie.
Patricia was preceded in death by her mother, Mamie Louise (Fugate) Bullock; her father, Walter Stevenson; her step-father, Lovel Ginn; and brother-in-law, Jess Bratcher.
