Patty loved the Lord and was gifted with the talent and love of hospitality and taking care of others. She served as deaconess, Sunday School teacher, young adult leader and in every other capacity of her church. Everyone that was ever ill, getting married, having a baby or members that were shut-ins would receive the chicken and noodle dinner that she made with love. She called South Ridge Church of Fairmont her place of worship where she hosted a home group of wonderful friends. Patty loved her family, her grandchildren, and her two special angels, her great-grandchildren. She was so generous with her time, her love and her family. Her family takes great comfort in knowing she is now with the love of her life, Richard L. Drummond and her eternal life in heaven. The family would like to extend their thankfulness to Amedisys Hospice for their wonderful care during mom’s final days.
