Patricia had lived most of her life in Summers County. She was a 1976 graduate of Hinton High School. In her lifetime, she was a caregiver to many.

Allen and husband Jim; nephews, Jeff and wife Becca Ballengee, Nathan and wife Victoria Allen, Tony and wife Lori Conti, Mike and wife Carrie Conti, Chris and wife Melissa Conti, Scott and wife Amanda Conti, Ed and wife Kay Westbrook, and Steve Westbrook; nieces, Denise Allen, Nedra Allen, Ginger and husband Jeff Rushton; brothers-in-law, Graydon Brown, Richard Conti; special uncle, Norman Via; and aunts, Shelva Maleck and Dorthy Meadows. She was also survived by many cousins, great-nephews, and great-nieces.

Funeral services will be 2 p.m.  Friday, May 9, 2014, at First Baptist Church with Pastor Ronnie Cobb officiating. Friends may call the funeral parlors from 6 to 9 p.m. Thursday, and one hour prior to service on Friday at the church. Burial will follow in the Lilly-Crews Cemetery at Nimitz.
