Patricia lived her life as a faithful and devoted Christian wife, mother, grandmother, sister and servant for the Lord. She was a graduate of University of Louisiana Monroe (NLU) with a bachelor’s and master’s degree in elementary and special education and after a long career as an elementary school teacher she continued to teach, tutor and help young people throughout her entire life. She was always involved in church activities at her beloved Liberty Baptist Church, including serving as Sunday School teacher, Vacation Bible School director, Girls in Actions leader, Acteens Director, Women’s Missionary Union local and state director, leading efforts for Lottie Moon Christmas Offerings and other mission fundraisers, serving as secretary and bookkeeper for the church, managing the church cemetery and countless other roles too numerous to list. She played an important role in the former Louisiana Passion Play which was an outdoor Christian drama about the Passion of Christ in which she played the role of Mary, mother of Jesus. To know Patricia was to know someone that followed the two greatest commandments, namely, to love God with all your heart and to love others. She gave of her time and her limited resources all through her life and loved everyone she met. True to her character, she volunteered at Glenwood Hospital ever since she retired from teaching and continued to serve up until her health began to fail in the past year. While Patricia will be missed by all of her family and friends, there is comfort in knowing that she now is where she was always destined to be, at home in Heaven with her Lord and Savior.
Pallbearers were her grandsons Ryan Camp, Richard Camp, Ralph Camp, Patrick Camp, John Ross Camp, and Darnell Thomas. Honorary pallbearer was Jacob Huff.
