Over the years, Patsy enjoyed baking, cooking, sewing, gardening, and fishing. She was known for her savory homestyle chicken and dumplings, Texas sheet cake, and homemade blackberry pie. She had a fondness for the ocean and enjoyed making crab cakes and fresh seafood for her family to enjoy. She cherished her grandchildren, and they will always remember how she would “miraculously” win at Monopoly.
