Patsy was employed by the Harbin Clinic for 53 years. She began her career with Dr. William Harbin, Jr. And worked with him until his death in 1986. She then worked with Dr. Randolph Sumner. A few years later, she was transferred to work with Dr. Paul Brock when he began his career at the Harbin Clinic and continued to work with Dr. Brock until her retirement until 2010. Dr. Brock always said “Patsy interviewed me stead of me interviewing her!”

Patsy continued to volunteer with the Harbin Clinic at the Cancer Center. She was a two-time cancer survivor.

Patsy was also a long time member of Second Avenue Baptist Church and the Joy Sunday School Class.

Patsy loved life and people. She never met a stranger. She was constantly smiling. One of her greatest joys was her beloved Weimaraner, Sadie, the love of her life. Everyone loved Patsy as it was so evident with over 300 visitors during her short illness.
