Long time Lacy Lakeview resident Patsy Ruth Carpenter left this world early Monday morning to meet her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. She stayed strong for 76 years until she found peace as she drew her last breath while peacefully sleeping surrounded by her children who had been with in her last days.
She was born June 30th 1946 to Ernest Troy Ford of Alma OK and Arline Whitlock of Giddings TX in Maywood California. She is preceded in death by both parents.
Patsy was a woman of many talents and passions. She loved camping, fishing, sewing, quilting, cooking, pottery and many other creative activities, like writing poetry which she won awards for. She loved to paint. She painted a picture of her son in his Navy dress uniform that exemplified one of her talents that she went as far as to earn her associates degree with. She was extremely generous with her time and love and extremely quick witted with those she loved. Her greatest passion was the family; primarily the generations to come that built her family in astronomical numbers, blood related or not.
She left behind her husband, James Carpenter of 27 years, her kids Arline Hill and her husband Fred of Bellmead Tx, her son Jack McCall Jr and his wife Suzi of Moore Ok, her daughter Ruth Earl and her husband Russ of Elm Mott Tx and her daughter Eathel Young and her husband George of Elm Mott Tx. She had 9 grandchildren and 18 great grandchildren which she never missed a chance to hold and cherish at a moments notice.
Patsy Carpenter was a good woman with a kind heart who showed naught but strength and humor throughout the lifetimes' memories of the younger generations. She has led a full, prosperous life through trials and tribulations that develops the kind of people who continuously impact the world with positivity. Many great things have sprouted from the fruits of her labors. She will be forever loved and never forgotten as she awaits, probably impatiently, the arrival of the family she left behind.
She was a long time member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, China Spring Ward.
