Patty spent over 25 years as a Certified Nurse’s Assistant at St. Joseph’s Nursing Home in Lacon caring for our elderly.
Patty enjoyed sitting around a campfire with family and always had a puzzle going in the house. She enjoyed playing euchre and loved a good book. Tramping through the woods to hunt mushrooms was one of her favorite things. She loved spending hours in the garden just watering and taking care of her plants. She was always the first one to offer a helping hand to anyone in need and would pull you into a big hug the moment she saw you. She was the most caring woman and you couldn’t help but smile and laugh along with her when she was around.
Patty is survived by her husband Darrin and son Ike at home; daughter Jacinda (Dane) Meeker of Manito; sisters Debbie (Roger) Engstrom of Sisters OR, Gail Handley of Lacon; brothers Michael (Sue) Fox of Caneyville KY, and Jon (Julie) Fox of Meridian ID. she was also preceded in death by her brother Jim Fox.
