Pat was a wonderful mother, aunt, grandparent and friend. She had a wonderful group of friends here in Bryan, Texas, “the girls.” Even after she moved to Austin due to health reasons they kept in touch regularly by phone and lunch gatherings when she’d come to Bryan for doctors appointments. That meant the world to her.
She loved to sing and did so most of her life. She also loved to dance and could two-step with the best of them, even entering some local dance contests back in the day.
Pat retired from Ameri-Gas Propane Company where she worked for almost 25 years serving the Brazos Valley. That is when she met the last love of her life, her little poodle Shasta, who was by her side at the end offering her comfort and companionship.
She was preceded in death by her mother, Margie McWhorter; father, Earl Godfrey; daughter, Sheryl Golden; and her only Sister, Peggy Young.
She is survived by her Son, Ricky Jones and Son-in-Law, Shawn O’Connor of Austin; granddaughter, Shannon Holland and her husband Jeffrey of North Zulch; great granddaughter, Emily Holland; niece, Pam Harper and her son Jeremy Harper, niece Tricia Sachs and husband Donovan and their children, Daniel, Bryan and Allison Reid.
