Wanda Charlotto Godsey Patrick
December 10, 1944 – October 26, 2016
Visitation service for Wanda Charlotto (Godsey) Patrick will be from 1 to 3pm on Monday, October 31, 2016, in the Pecan Room of Callaway-Jones Funeral and Cremation Centers.
Wanda was born to Jesse Arnold and Anna (Hammond) Godsey on December 10, 1944, in Delta, Kentucky. She passed away on Wednesday, October 26, 2016. Preceding her in death were her parents and her sister Nora Lotte of Winchester KY.
She is survived by her husband, Donald Hubert Patrick Jr of Bryan TX; her son, Walter Stuart Patrick of Sheridan, OR; her granddaughter, Elizabeth Nicole of Sheridan, OR; her half-sister Jean Thurman of Monticello KY, her brothers, Ronnie Harold of Lancaster KY; Rollin Milton of Lancaster KY; Dale Arnold of Walton, KY; Rickey Lynn of Lawrenceburg KY and her sisters, Patricia Flonie of Lancaster KY; Bonnie Joe of Laurel MS; and Jewell Ann of San Antonio TX.
Falling in the middle of ten siblings, she grew up in a coal miner’s/farmer’s family. Her family members were devout Baptists. She started school at Paint Lick, Kentucky and graduated from High School in Pennsylvania.
Mrs. Patrick proudly served her country as a Civil Servant with the US Departments of Agriculture, US Army, and Transportation. She served as an Army Community Services Volunteer, American Red Cross Volunteer, and as Treasurer & Vice President of the Non-Commissioned Officers Wife’s Club at Fort Richardson, Alaska. Involved with her son’s activities, she found the time to serve as a Cub Scout Den Mother, as a Boy Scout Troop Leader Assistant and as a Soccer Mom.
She was the epitome of an Army wife. Outgoing, warm and friendly, she could be the life of a social event. When she walked into the room, the room seemed to light up with her presence. Rather than spend her time with hobbies, she preferred to be with people.
Mrs. Patrick was a devout Christian, she and her family attended and were heavily involved with the 52nd Street Chapel at Fort Hood, Texas. She loved to sing. She participated many years with the Frankfurt Military Community Christmas Tree Choir in Germany. She was especially fond of the hymns ‘Love Lifted Me’ and ‘Amazing Grace’.
